David D. Levine / Arabella Of Mars / A Flight Of Fancy, Daring-do And Romance

David D. Levine has captured my heart
For a reader of old time Science Fiction
Edgar Rice Burroughs, E. E. "Doc" Smith, Jules Verne etc etc
Arabella of Mars made me reminisce
Fond memories of the Mars and Lensman and Nemo
Treasures from the basement of my home growing up

Arabella is a plucky young woman
Yes, she has to disguise herself as a boy
I wouldn't have it any other way
Breathable air between Earth and Mars
Hoot, Hoot

A father who knew much of Automata
A father who understood his unusual daughter
A mysterious ship Captain
An amazing Automata Navigator

Much daring-do
Trying to do the right thing
Arabella Ashby is a heroine you want to meet


Music
New from Mark Knopfler with Evelyn Glennie
Altamira
