The anthology The New Space Opera 2 comes out today, and as it happens I have a short story in it, called “The Tale of the Wicked,” which features ships and missiles and explosions and aliens and all the other sort of stuff what space opera got. And aside from me, it’s got authors like Robert Charles Wilson, Cory Doctorow, Jay Lake, Garth Nix, Bruce Sterling, Elizabeth Moon, Justina Robson and many others. Who also feature ships and missiles and explosions and aliens and so on in their stories. Really, it’s a whole lot of space opera in compact anthology form. I suspect you’ll enjoy it immensely.
