Summary

Even in a galaxy torn apart by war, the young still have dreams. 
On Rajipuri, a poor planet in the Empire of Worlds, Anjali Patel and her two younger sisters look up at the stars and dream of escaping the limitations of a traditional and rigidly stratified society. 
At the same time, in a camp for war orphans in the Republic of United Planets, Mikhail Grikov also looks up at the stars and dreams of escaping a life of pain and abuse. 
One day in the far future, they will meet and change the galaxy. But for now, they're merely dreaming of the stars… 
This is a prequel novelette of 8500 words or approx. 29 print pages to the "In Love and War" series, but may be read as a standalone.

    Funny and adventurous short fiction by a well-established poet with a devoted following. The first and only collection of Ruefle’s fiction. This book has strong potential to tap into the widespread audience for literary fiction. (It’s a bit like George Saunders meets James Tate.) Stories have appeared in a number of popular and literary magazines, including Harper’s, Sentence, and Triquarterly. Ruefle was featured in the McSweeney’s Book of Poets Picking Poets; this book is a good opportunity to expand Mary’s readership to fans of flash fiction and McSweeney’s readers. Her poetry collections are very popular in libraries and bookstores with an academic connection. Ruefle teaches at the Univeristy of Iowa and the University of Vermont.
