“Self-described Shakespeare geek Kate Story sticks much closer to Shakespeare’s Tempest than did Forbidden Planet, while at the same time reimagining the play in an exotic, funny and very sexy way. Science fiction (SF) fans and Shakespeare buffs should be equally delighted.”
—Alex Good, The Toronto Star

“An ambitious deep space retelling of The Tempest that would have delighted Shakespeare and Sagan in equal measure.”
—Eric Choi, Aurora Award-winning author and editor

“Kate Story’s writing is inventive, rich with ideas that will make your head spin. She combines this imagination with keen insight into human nature and insider knowledge of the world of the stage. The resulting stories are rich pageants, tying the comforting to the unsettling and the familiar to the bizarre.”
—A.M. Dellamonica, author of the Aurora Award-winning Hidden Sea Tales Trilogy

“Story has penned a sexy, sophisticated future-Shakespearean romp. Ambitious, rich, magical, and a joy to read.”
—Kelly Robson, Author of Waters of Versailles, a Nebula, World Fantasy, and Sunburst Award finalist, and Aurora Award winner
