This Insubstantial Pageant by Kate Story
The infinite adaptability of Shakespeare has been proven again and again over the past 400 years, with his plays being set in every different time and place imaginable. Why not The Tempest in space, then? Indeed, it had already been done, or at least suggested, as long ago as 1956's Forbidden Planet.
Self-described Shakespeare geek Kate Story sticks much closer to Shakespeare's Tempest than did Forbidden Planet, while at the same time reimagining the play in an exotic, funny and very sexy way. Science fiction fans and Shakespeare buffs should be equally delighted.
