Overview

In this novelette by Nebula Award nominated author Jason Sanford, science fiction and fantasy collide in a moving tale of the far future. Princess Krisja Jerome lives in a playground universe of stone castles and dragons, where gallant knights fight for honor and glory using lasers and unbreakable synthetic swords. But when invaders destroy Krisja's carefully managed life, she sets out on a quest with a King Arthur duplicate to discover the truth of their world. Along the way she learns it’s not enough to merely experience great deeds – to be a true hero you must risk everything you both love and hold dear.

Editorial Reviews

Sam Tomaino
You can always count on Jason Sanford for something imaginative and ‘Her Scientifiction, Far Future, Medieval Fantasy’ certainly more than achieves that goal. Another stunning piece by a talented writer.
Tomas Martin
A whirlwind of a story that bashes together every trope of speculative fiction into a big chaotic adventure and it is tremendous fun to go along for the ride.
Colin Harvey
A terrific cross-genre story. Highly Recommended.
Gardner Dozois
Fun to read.
