Rainbow Snippets: A Symposium in Space

I interrupt Quartz’s story (and anything he may throw at me for doing so) to share snippets once more from A Symposium in Space, my science fiction novella and inversion of Plato’s classic, which I’ll be reading from on July 18 at 4:15 p.m., my first reading, eep! I’ve been practicing, but I’m not doing too well…(wry grin) This is a little longer than six sentences for coherency’s sake.

The invitation resembled an eyeball.

A floating pink orb drifted up to the open panels of Pausania’s apartment and fixed me with its lidless stare.

I froze, unsure how to react. An unfashionable citizen of the Intergalactic Democracy, I still ran around in a vest with pocket protectors, unfamiliar with the latest technology. The bobbing globe made me think of tales of magic from Ancient Earth.

“Phaedra, beloved of Pausania.” A melodic voice, filled with sly suggestion, came from the orb. “I’d be very pleased if you and your lover would attend my symposium in space.”
