Sale! “Mercury Retrograde” to Ekaterina Sedia’s anthology Willful Impropriety

I am delighted that my story has been picked for the new anthology WILFUL IMPROPRIETY: 13 Tales of Society and Scandal (to be published in the US by Running Press. This is a Victorian YA anthology that takes a fine look at the social restrictions of the period.

  1. Woah.  Talk about combining all the authors I recently read to get a feel for this “Regency fantasy” genre – Stevermer, Burgis, Kowal.  All that’s missing is a little Wrede and Clarke.  I shall definitely have to keep an eye out for it.
