About this title


On the planet Barious, war has become a national pass time. During one of these conflicts Taralin Zarco, Queen of Barious, was abducted by the Barion's mortal enemies the Lockeds. When the story starts the war has ended, the Barions have won and the queen has just been found on a distant planet. Enter Drewcila Qwah, a rough-and-tumble salvager, who drinks too much, smokes too much, and has a mouth you wouldn't kiss your mother with. Drewcila (Drew) and her partner, a huge hair-covered alien named Van Gar, have been hired by the king's emissaries to take the confused queen to meet her husband. Only two real problems with this plan. Drewcila hates royalty, and the queen has no memory of being queen or of her husband. Meet a strange world filled with palace intrigue, rebel plots, assassination attempts, civil unrest, economic depression, trash, and the unscrupulous salvager who wants to change it all to suit her own needs. Queen of Denial is a book with one mission: to entertain. It is a fast-paced, hard-hitting, action-packed, science fiction comedy, with a little mystery thrown in for good measure. Ms. Rosen believes in researching her work in every detail. Queen of Denial is the end product of a lifetime of drinking, working in the trash collection business, and getting into fistfights over petty crap.

About the Author:

Selina Rosen lives in rural Arkansas with her partner of ten years, and assorted animal and plant life. Besides writing, she enjoys (heavy) sword fighting, fencing, building things from trash, gardening, and making smug people feel small. She also enjoys drinking and singing really dirty songs.

Selina has been writing almost every day of her life since she was twelve. She has tried to quit on occasion without success, and hopes that some day "they" will come up with a twelve-step program for writers to help them with their addiction.

Her short fiction has appeared in several issues of Marion Zimmer Bradley's Fantasy Magazine, and anthologies such as Such A Pretty Face, Sword and Sorceress 16, and Personal Demons to name a few.

Other Meisha Merlin titles include Queen of Denial, and the first book in this series ( didn't know there was a first book? Now things are starting to make sense!)...Chains of Freedom.

She and a few other masochists own and run Yard Dog Press, which would explain why YDP carries so many of her titles, including...The Bubba Chronicles (a collection of her short fiction both horror and sci-fi), The Host Series, Fire and Ice, and a sci-fi/police procedural/horror novella entitled The Boat Man.

She has also edited two anthologies, Stories That Won't Make Your Parents Hurl (children's horror), and Bubbas of the Apocalypse a shared universe anthology of her own afraid—be very afraid!

She publishes installments of her science fiction novel-in-progress, Torque City Blues, on a monthly basis at the Yard Dog website. She also posts new "rants" on the website fairly often, because as she says you can't work in this business and not stay pissed off!
