Evelyn’s Story

Evelyn’s Story

An Elite Dangerous novel and audiobook. Written and Produced by Drew Wagar. Cover Design by Antony Taylor. 

Some stories start and stop. Others are never quite finished. Some may be put on hold for days, weeks, even years or centuries. But, just occasionally, another chapter is added to a story that has long been thought to be finished.

To do that, one must push beyond the boundaries, travel out and explore the darkness and throw light upon mysteries thought to be unsolvable.

Such a story awaits you, another tale of the void between the distant stars. Another legend to be told and a heroine to remember…

“Evelyn’s story” was written for Evelyn Faye Roy, an 11 year girl who enjoyed watching her father Mike play the Elite Dangerous video game. She died on 26th February 2020 from a form of cancer called Neuroblastoma. You can read about that on Mike’s thread on the ED forums.

As per Mike’s wish, the story is freely available from the links below. If you are willing, please consider a donation to the Roy family in memory of Evelyn, or to the Alberta Childrens’ Hospital Foundation.
