Reader's Diary #1173- Rebecca Rosenblum: Ms. Universe
Rebecca Rosenblum's "Ms. Universe" has Martians in it and it was published in 2013. That struck me as odd at first. Martians seem like a 1950s thing. Perhaps, I supposed, this was meant to be a story written in the 50s. A narrator couldn't have written about being attracted to someone of the same gender in the 50s, and one from another race/culture at that, so the Martian elements may have been meant as an attempt at a front.
Or it may actually have been about Martians. In any case, it held my attention the whole way through and I quite enjoyed it. Entertaining with lots of emotion and societal commentary.
