Tuning the Symphony

William C. Tracy. Space Wizard Science Fantasy, $2.99 e-book (160p) ISBN 978-0-9972994-0-3
Tracy launches his Dissolution universe with this delightfully imaginative fantasy novella. The Nether is a junction that connects 10 alien homeworlds, and maji are the only ones who can create portals to connect them all. All maji are capable of working magic with the notes of the Grand Symphony: “It was the music that underlay the universe. Change... one note... and the universe changed with it.” Rilan Ayama is tested by the Nether’s Great Assembly of Species and is granted the title of majus. Before seeking an occupation that will be based on her new status, Rilan agrees to accompany Origon, her friend and teacher, to the homeworld of Festuour in order to take custody of his brother’s body. The gravity of Festuour is different, the animals are remarkably terrifying, and even the foliage industry is peculiar. Origon and Rilan become closer as they search for answers regarding his brother’s mysterious death. The complex details of magical manipulation of music, color, and all the senses are laid out with a refreshing clarity and consistency. Fans of fantasy will find much to love about this enchanting story. (BookLife)
