Karan K Anders

About Karan K Anders

Karan K Anders is a pen name of Andrea K Höst, used for stories that aren't primarily science fiction and fantasy (and also contain more explicit scenes than the usual fade-to-black stories).

Since my primary interest is in SFF, I only write occasionally on this pen name.

  1. I loved The Book of Firsts. In Seconds, I think it would be awesome if Mika designed a bridge for Echoes that sings when the wind blows. And Rin could write the songs the bridge sings!

    1. I'm glad you enjoyed it! Mika will definitely be designing bridges, in-game and out.

  2. I am a big fan of The Book of Firsts. Love the structure, the community, and above all the writing. Thank you so much for such a great romance.
