Free Fiction Monday: Rocket Girls
Angie achieved fame as a spacer. But when some fresh-faced interviewer asks Angie to tell the origin story of the Space Bimbos, the interviewer gets more than she bargained for.
Instead, Angie tells the tale of a group of ambitious and talented girls who, inspired by an old pulp magazine called Rocket Girls, cobbled together a rocket and tried to blast off into space—and then, made history.
With “Rocket Girls,” Kristine Kathryn Rusch puts her own genius female-empowered twist on the build-a-spaceship-in-your-backyard trope from the pulps.
“Rocket Girls” by Hugo Award-winning author Kristine Kathryn Rusch, is free on this website for one week only. The story’s also available as an ebook through various online retailers here.

I loved this story. I read it before bed yesterday and couldn’t put it down.
Are there any other stories about the Rocket Girls/Space Bimbos I can read?
Unfortunately, no. Maybe someday…
Thanks for the great feedback!
