The Space Between is a novella originally published in the anthology The Mad Scientist's Guide to World Domination, edited by John Joseph Adams. It deals with Michael Murray – second son of Ian and Jenny Murray – and with Joan MacKimmie, Laoghaire MacKenzie’s second daughter and Marsali’s younger sister. Joan sets off for France, under Michael’s protection, there to take up her vocation as a nun.
On October 11, 2012, A Trail of Fire was published in the U.K. as a collection of four of Gabaldon's short stories, including "The Space Between". The U.K. hardcover, as well as the U.K. Kindle edition, are so far the only available editions.
