Cowboys, asteroids, and love triangles
I don’t know whether to blame it all on love trouble or music trouble, but it certainly was trouble that happened on the outskirts of Saturn’s belt. The dirty business took place on a small meteoroid whose spin’s so fast that six minutes separates sunrise from sunset.
That’s the opening of a Western style yarn set in a science fiction short story called Parsec Hiccup which tries to set straight, once and for all, which musical genre is superior: classical or Rock.
The story is available in Argosy Magazine Volume 1: Fantastic Frontiers. Argosy launched December (2013) and first off I have to give a BIG THANK YOU to my readers who supported its launch by donating to their crowd funding campaign!
And another THANK YOU from Argosy’s editor, Daniel Bazinga. His science fiction and fantasy credentials are undeniable as he has edited and contributed to a number of fantasy tabletop RPG publications. Daniel has carefully crafted Argosy Magazine to show its pulp origins through styling the cover’s typeface to bleed as if run through an actual printing press on pulp paper.
