Carmen Miranda’s Ghost is Haunting Space Station Three was published in 1990 and features authors sci-fi fans have loved for years, like Anne McCaffrey and C.J. Cherryh. It also has stories from previously unknown writers. Each tale includes Carmen Miranda in some way.

I’ve known Don Sakers for longer than either of us would like to admit. I met him through a mutual friend in my teens and we ended up as co-workers, supporting each other’s creative efforts for many years. My copy of this book is signed by the editor. (The note is a reference to my years as an amateur songwriter).
