    Summary

    “I'm sorry." Francis halts on the geometric carpeting, rolly-bag trailing to a stop behind him. Overhead, a metallic voice drones above the noise of the crowds. Francis covers his free ear, pressing the mobile closer. "You're going to have to say that again."

    “I can take you." There’s a pause. “If you'd like, that is."

    Summary

    Murderbot is at a party.

    This is not a normal state of affairs for SecUnits. Neither is the comfy clothes or the sitting or the way the humans keep smiling in its general direction. The smiling, it suspects, will stop, if/when they realise their SecUnit has suffered some sort of catastrophic glitch and has no idea where it is or the specifics of its current assignment.

    So it's not going to let them find out.

    Summary

    The year was 1847. There were more than two magicians in England, and one of them had just died.
    “Well,” said the second of the remaining magicians to the first. “I say we consult the Ormskirk first.”
    “The Ormskirk,” said the first to the second.
    “Yes. I think he is as good a starting point as any.”

     

    (or, Mr. Crozier and Mr. Fitzjames, with different degrees of willingness, embark upon a rescue.)

    Summary

    Three-and-one-third bodies have been found in an abandoned vehicle on the riverbank.

    It would be a challenging case even without the bad weather, weapons smuggling, white nationalists, industrial accidents, and the concept of pedigree dog breeds—but over it all hangs one troubling question: What is it that fascinates you about Kim Kitsuragi? Is it working class camaraderie? A sinister hex of mysterious origin? Did you imprint on him in Martinaise, like an amnesiac duckling? If you don’t figure out what’s going on soon, people are going to start to notice. Especially him.

    And sooner or later? Everything is related to the case.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Light-hearted and full of romance, magical realism, and anticapitalist rage - a real pick-me-up.
