Zeppelin Follies

32 pages25 minutes


In a wacky world filled with advertising zeppelins, muffin-baking robots, and software-generated fiction, a writer finds herself pursued by heiress Mimsy and her ambitious servitor. This short story originally appeared in online magazine Crossed Genres and is reprinted in Rambo's collection, Near + Far.

Working with a future reminiscent of Fritz Leiber's The Silver Metal Eggheads or The Green Millenium, Rambo creates a screwball romance with genuine affection for the genre. Her use of deft humor, wry cynicism, and lyrical language create a world with her usual masterful craftsmanship and engaging storytelling.
