Edited by Jennifer Lee Rossman and Brian McNett
My story, The Silken Eclipse, is included in the non-dystopian and quite musical Space Opera Libretti. When Brian McNett and Jennifer Lee Rossman posted the call for submissions, I really felt I had to write for this. The Silken Eclipse is about a multi-tentacled and multi-talented diva who has to deal with a sub-par ingenue in a famous opera company. That’s right, it’s a space-opera space opera! I think I combined the atmosphere of the 17th century with the absurdity of Life in the ’Cosm. It was so much fun to write!
