“One of my favorite things about this story is its odd apocalyptic tone and strong sci-fi/fantasy foundation. The dark quality that comes with it is the cherry on top.” –FanboysAnonymous.com on Libertaria: The Virtual Opera
“I would recommend the book to anyone who’s seen or listened to the opera. Additionally, because this book was staged first, it’s an interesting study in differing ways of storytelling — music versus music-and-video versus book versus book-and-music… After all, there aren’t very many sci-fi operas — at least, not ones that aren’t treated as a joke. Libertaria: Genesis is dystopian, and good at it, and that needs further examination.” – Josh Roseman, Author the Clockwork Russian at Escape Pod

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Award-winning composer and obsessive sci-fi buff Sabrina Pena Young enjoys spending her free time playing the drums, devising plans for world domination, cooking Cuban food, and playing with her hyperactive dog sandy.
Young has been a TED talk speaker, an opera composer, a filmmaker, a lousy comedian, and a dancing rat. Her work has been shown in Asia, Europe, Australia, and the Americas at the Holland Animation Film Festival, Tedxbuffalo, Art Basil Miami, the NY International Independent Film Festival, way too many computer music conferences, and random boom boxes in France.
Critics call her art “daunting”, “epic”, “groundbreaking” and on more than one occasion her films have given audience members nightmares.
LIBERTARIA: GENESIS is Young’s debut sci-fi novel, the first in a series based on her animated film Libertaria: The Virtual Opera.
