book review: Space Opera anthology edited by Anne McCaffrey

Now I picked up this book way back when it came out in 1996 , but I recently decided I needed to re-read my older books.

This lovely anthology is a collection of tales with the theme of music. Everything from fantasy, horror, science fiction, post apocalyptic and more. Some of the greatest voices in fiction from the 90s and before are in this book.

From Space Station Annie by the late great Cynthia McQuillian to Scarborough Fair by Elizabeth Anne Scarborough to Calling Them Home by Jody Lynn Nye it is easy to find a tale that lifts up your heart by the power of the mixture of words and music.

While these tales might seem a bit dated to a lot of modern readers, they are fine examples of masters of the craft writing on a theme. We need more anthologies like this and I know I will be looking for them.
