AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'What if Hamlet were not Prince of Denmark but Lord Besterman, scion of the Director of the Recombinant Engineering Cartel on asteroid Pallas? What if Besterman's uncle Feng slew his father by hurling him into a black hole? What if Ratio, a robot from Earth, visits the small world to thwart the murderous conflict that could explode across the worlds? And what of Folly, an Ophelia with iron in her soul? Reinventing Shakespeare is a bold gamble, but Broderick is the writer to carry it off in style.'
