Creative Colloquy: Galactic Dreams
May 24, 2019 @ 7:00 pm – 11:30 pm
Creative Colloquy lures readers and writers out of hiding, to connect and conspire.
Come imbibe in roasted bean concoctions, craft brews and vino varietals as we gather to listen to writers narrate their tales.
This month we are mixing up our usual literary shenanigans.
…in the future the stars must fight to save humanity?
…an algae farmer’s daughter and a spy make a deadly bargain to save everything they both love?
…a silent engineer on an empty moon must save a prince from an ancient evil?
Welcome to the universe of Galactic Dreams, where fairy tales are reimagined for a new age—the future.
Galactic Dreams is a unique series of science-fiction novels from Blue Zephyr Press featuring retellings of classic fairy tales from different authors, all sharing the same universe, technology, and history. In each Galactic Dreams novel you’ll find an old tale reborn with a mixture of romance, technology, aliens and adventure. The Blue Zephyr Press mission is to empower women and create heroines who never wait for the prince to save the day—the Galactic Dreams space opera novels are no exception.
