Presenting Sleeping Beauties: A Strange Space Short Story!

Today, I am delighted to present to you the newest addition to my collection of Patreon-exclusive Strange Space short stories!

Sleeping Beauties is a fun take on a classic fairytale, centered around the moment of first contact between the humans of my Strange Space setting and the enigmatic Florivans. The story takes place roughly a century before my novel Celadon, for those of you who have been following along with the timeline of these tales.

Here's a little "back cover teaser" for this story:

Once upon a dream... The sleepers set out on a grand adventure: a journey to a new star system, to be the first people to see its wonders. The watchers have been waiting for centuries to finally meet their destined friends. The apprentice and the artisan share a dream that will bring their peoples together in ways no one could have expected...

As with all of my Strange Space short stories, Sleeping Beauties is an exclusive perk for my patrons to read as a reward for their steadfast encouragement and support of my work. I am eternally grateful to my patrons at all levels for making it possible for me to dedicate my time and energy to writing these little windows into my favorite optimistic science fiction universe!

I have to say, this is one of my all-time favorite stories that my characters have presented. First contact is such a fun concept to play with. I can't wait to hear what y'all think of it!

Stay shiny! -Katie Silverwings
