Rather, Lina

Tagged: Author

(?   -    ) US author who began publishing work of genre interest with "Marking the Witch" in Flash Fiction Online for February 2017 (see Flash Fiction). Her first novel, Sisters of the Vast Black (short version first appeared Tor.com Publishing 2019 Debut Sample, anth 2019 ebook: 2019), which is set in a galaxy-encompassing Space Opera universe, traces the interstellar travels (see Colonization of Other Worlds; Religion; Women in SF) of the female Order of Saint Rita, whose mission is to give pastoral assistance to souls adrift in the vast firmament that is their remit. As the compactly told tale progresses, and as their sentient Spaceship expresses a desire to breed, the Order finds itself increasingly adrift from the conservative church it has left very far behind.
