Robert T. Jeschonek “sees the world like no one else sees it, and makes incredibly witty, incisive stories out of that skewed worldview.” — Mike Resnick, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of the Starship series
«Jeschonek´s stories are delightfully insane, a pleasure to read…" — Fábio Fernandes, Fantasy Book Critic
Terpsichore the muse has a thing for musicians. Her passion breathes life into the careers of stars from the Pied Piper of Hamelin to a modern-day guitar hero. But when the latest in her long line of superstar finds flames out, Terpsichore must tap her own inner wild child for inspiration. Can she rock the spotlight on her own? Will the everlasting groupie step up to become America's idol, or will she crash and burn like the players who went before? It takes a muse to face the music in a world where the hottest songs come from shooting stars who burn out instead of fading away.
