Author: Karl Schroeder
First Publication: 2014
Cover: Victor Mosquerra
Karl Schroeder is an author I always thought of trying but never got around to it. When I saw “Jubilee” was available I thought it would be a perfect time to try his work. It is a far future version of “Romeo and Juliet”. The other thing is that it belongs to the same universe as his recent “Lockstep” novel. Schroeder chooses to tell the story from one of the planet’s natives who is supporting the main story. If this is typical Schroeder, I have another author to add to my must read list. He seamlessly works in classic style science fiction ideas with a modern storytelling style.
Based on this story, I have to read “Lockstep” in the near future.
