About the Novel

Asymmetric Worlds has published the eighth novel by Ron Fritsch, The Lord Chamberlain’s Daughter.

Who murdered Hamlet’s father? Hamlet decided the killer was his uncle Claudius. After all, as a result of the assassination, Claudius became Denmark’s king. But did Hamlet get it right? And what about those other high-ranking persons, including Hamlet and Claudius, who ended up dead? Would Ophelia, the lord chamberlain’s daughter Hamlet was in love with, know?

The Lord Chamberlain’s Daughter does not require any familiarity with Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

The Lord Chamberlain’s Daughter is a seductive tale of power and greed, love and sacrifice, murder and betrayal, and the senseless war that caused it all  The writing drives the story forward with an enticing pace and attention to detail that keeps the reader captivated and guessing. I thoroughly enjoyed it.” Sheri Hoyte for Reader Views

The Lord Chamberlain’s Daughter is Shakespeare’s Hamlet story “with a powerful female protagonist driving the action. Fritsch fully develops the character of Ophelia so that her story feels believable and authentic. This is fan fiction at its finest. This Ophelia comes with power and poise, pulling all the strings while the men destroy each other.” Michelle Jacobs for The US Review of Books
