Science fiction author Melinda Snodgrass of Santa Fe celebrates the release of the second book in her space opera series.
SANTA FE AUTHOR CELEBRATES 2ND SPACE OPERA NOVEL SATURDAY, JULY 15, AT PAGE ONE BOOKS
Science Fiction author Melinda Snodgrass of Santa Fe will be at Page One Books 4:00 pm Saturday, July 15, to celebrate the release of the second book in her space opera series, "In Evil Times: Imperials 2."
Her second Imperials effort is described as such: "Scholarship student Thracius 'Tracy' Belmanor and Princess Mercedes de Arango have graduated from the High Ground and become officers in the Orden de la Estrella. Stung by Mercedes’ choice of Beauregard 'Boho' Cullen as her consort, Tracy is glad that they are posted on battleships light years apart, but soon finds that without her protection he is nothing but a target. Meanwhile, Mercedes’ posting has its own challenges, not least her unfaithful husband. Both young officers find themselves part of forced “assimilations” of settlers on Hidden Worlds, which lead them to doubt the intentions of the Solar League. And when Tracy witnesses an horrific event that threatens the fragile human and alien peace, Mercedes must decide where her loyalties truly lie..."
Snodgrass has been assistant editor on the "Wild Cards" mosaic superhero anthology series since its beginning in the 1980s, worked two years as story editor on "Star Trek: The Next Generation" (and wrote the script for the popular episode "The Measure of a Man"), has written screenplays for several TV series, and is the author of "The Edge" science fiction series. Currently, she is shepherding the effort to turn "Wild Cards" into a TV series or theatrical film. As Phillipa Bornikova, she has produced two novels so far in the award-winning "Linnet Ellery" urban fantasy series. She splits her time between homes in Santa Fe and Los Angeles.
