GATES OF WONDER

Events echo across worlds.

Bloody civil war on one version of Earth? Devastating plague on another? Economic free fall on a third?

The Bureau of Interworld Stabilization ensures that Prime, Earth Prime, remains just that: stable.

Free of unnecessary, unwanted disruption—or as much as BIS can control. By paying attention, identifying the small things, and intervening.

It takes a unique person to succeed as a BIS Field Agent, trained to travel to the alternate worlds beyond the Gates. It takes brains. Adaptability. And courage.

And a very special person to operate those Gates, to anchor the energies of the universe.

Don’t forget about the support staff. Trained to identify the critical flap of a butterfly’s wing.

All linked by the genetic quirk to see the Gates, travel the Gates, and work the Gates.

Meet the Agents of BIS.
