The “Engen Universe” is a shared continuity among several of our novels, series, and short stories. It includes the Black Womb series, the Xander Drew series, the Infinity series, and three books of short fiction. It covers a wide range of genres, styles, and themes while still co-existing in a shared timeline of events and rationality. One does not need to have read each series to understand the one they’re reading: but further reading provides more mysteries to unravel.
