May loves racing the Audacity, the most obnoxiously orange rocket in the universe. Her best friend and co-pilot Xan would rather watch "I Love Lucy" on the couch.
Both their plans are constantly thwarted by an immortal, body-hopping being who calls herself Chaos.
The Audacity's Horrific Horrors
An Audacious Short Story
May insists on visiting an abandoned carnival on a distant asteroid, but when she and Xan get there, they find it abandoned. Keen for an adventure, May breaks in to explore, which is exactly what the remains of the carnival staff want.
Carmen Loup is a non-binary humorologist, illustrator of "Tarot in Space", and author of "The Audacity" space opera series. They've been writing seriously since 2007 and funnily since 2015. Loup grew up on Monty Python, Douglas Adams, and Red Dwarf, but always wondered why only straight white men were making people laugh and endeavored to change that.
They write technicolor fun in space for adults with a dedication to optimism and a kind of Zen-inspired good humor that shines through even ridiculously horrible situations. They're obsessed with Alan Watts and it shows.
