Mistress of the Waves
by George Phillies
Goddard is a world trapped in its non-technological present by brilliant social engineering. Orphaned Amanda Kirasdotr rescues a space traveler, flies on his starship, and wants a starship of her own. That's challenging when the hottest ship on Goddard boasts three masts and a full set of sails. But Amanda has a plan. First she faces storms, pirates, and assassins of the Order of the Bell.
