by | Read by Brian Nishii, Emily Woo Zeller

Science Fiction • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Drawing from her Asian-American and theatrical background, narrator Emily Woo Zeller brings a rare intimacy and an exotic toughness to a meticulously drawn world of assassins, warriors, and thieves. This collection of 21 linked cutting-edge science fiction stories completes the author's Machineries of Empire series. Ranging in length from flash fiction to a full-blown novella, many of the pieces center around Shuos Jedao, a military tactical genius who is forced to serve the master Kel's intergalactic empire. In a conversational tone, another multicultural narrator, Tokyo-born Brian Nishii, delivers the charmingly personal and insightful notes provided by the author after each story, which explain why both Korean and Texan accents show up prominently throughout Zeller's performance.
