“The Music of the Spheres” is included in Capricious, issue 7, available for purchase here.
Polyphemus is a small, far-flung planet shrouded in darkness. While it is survivable for human life, many do not thrive there. But Wren does. Wren, blind and young and musical, walks across the skin of Polyphemus and feels the planet’s beating heart.
I love this story! It’s about finding a place you belong. It’s about dis/ability. It’s about how sometimes what is alien is actually familiar and vice versa. I am so glad it found a home. Pick up a copy of Capricious issue 7–all the stories in it are truly lovely.
