Inhaltsangabe zu „Sleepless, Burning Life“ von Mike Allen

"Mike Allen’s 'Sleepless, Burning Life' is a very Moorcockian trip through cosmic clockwork, in search of 'the dark-eyed dancer who made the cosmos turn.' The worldbuilding is beautiful, and I’d have loved to see a full-length novel with a similar conceit in the same setting." -- Cold Iron & Rowan-Wood In the afterlife, the warrior Jyshiu searches for her lover Amritu, a goddess cursed to dance eternally inside a cage that hangs at the top of the clockwork universe. Kitsartu the Engineer imprisoned Amritu when she created the cosmic spheres; Amritu's dance powers the gears that make the stars turn. Should the goddess ever escape her cage, the universe will end. Jyshiu intends to set her free. "My favorites ... Mike Allen's 'Sleepless, Burning Life,' perhaps the strangest story here, and the most erotic, about a woman punished for defying her religion by an epochs-long climb up a clockwork structure to meet her sleepless goddess." -- Locus "Mike Allen’s gorgeous ‘Sleepless, Burning Life’ bases the mythology of a universe on something that feels like clockwork." -- The Future Fire This clockpunk novelette by CLOCKWORK PHOENIX editor and Nebula Award nominee Mike Allen first appeared in the pages of JoSelle Vanderhooft's ground-breaking anthology STEAM-POWERED: LESBIAN STEAMPUNK STORIES. Now it appears for the first time as a standalone e-book, revised and updated by the author, with a beautiful illustration by Avery Liell-Kok and a new introduction by author and activist Shira Lipkin.
