there!, Hello

Much Ado, The Scottish Play, Lear, and Juliet meet Space Opera

Last night I finished a chapbook from Subterranean Press.

5) Muse of Fire by Dan Simmons (2008, Subterranean Press, 105 pages)
Shakespeare performances and space opera combine in this intriguing, cosmos spanning novella.

If I was only eager to read Simmons new novel, Drood (due out in two weeks), I am now nearly rabid with anticipation. [Note: Muse of Fire has nothing to do with Drood, but this brief visit to Simmons' writing makes me long for more.]
