    PaperbackÌ Nova eBook ↠ nova kindle, Nova MOBI“NOVA” – ueen sings – Ahhh AhhhhReading this I could not help thinking about the 1980 Mike Hodges film Flash Gordon starring Max von Sydow and Sam Jones Many critics and reviewers have used the term “space opera” to label and describe Samuel Delaney’s imaginative Hugo nominated 1968 science fiction novel and I think I will join those ranksWikipedia defines “space opera as follows Space opera is a sub genre of science fiction that often emphasizes romantic often melodramatic adventure set mainly or entirely in outer space usually involving conflict between opponents possessing advanced abilities weapons and other technologyI call Nova a space opera because of the dramatic chamber like setting of a science fiction story While Delaney explains his science well a
