A plot summary of a three Act space opera opera. I’m thinking that someone should write the libretto properly, maybe as something like Britten’s ‘Billy Budd’, but for heaven’s sake not a D’Oyle Carte Gilbert and Sullivan ‘opera’.
Further adventures of Jack Shade, who is reluctant to take on a client, until he finds out who the client’s mom is.
A classy story from Kress, as is often the case. It’s a story that could have been written by James Tiptree Jr., and there’s no finer praise I can give.
