How to Become a Mars Overlord by Catherynne M. Valente - Lightspeed Magazine
But I found this one to be rather odd.
The author has a love of space opera and ancient mythology.
Take those two genres and fold them into a promotional/professional development seminar and you get a feel for how the story is presented.
Don't get me wrong, it was fun and I loved the author's sentences. There is a real love of grandiose language that I found quite entertaining.
I just don't know how to label it. Perhaps that is what makes it good. I have not run into anything quite like it before.
