About the Book

Alton Bartleby is a social savant and the foppish toast of steampunk London's upper crust. James Wainwright is a brilliant but socially stunted working class engineer with a flair for invention and a propensity towards violence. Together they solve the mysteries that Scotland Yard cannot.In the shadow of airships an unstoppable assassin stalks the untouchable elite.

As Queen Victoria's Platinum Jubilee approaches, consulting detectives Bartleby and James must track her down and put an end to the threat she presents to Queen and country.

This mystery is the first novelette in the Galvanic Century series of steampunk stories.

About the Author

Michael Coorlim is a teller of strange stories for stranger people. He collects them, the oddballs. The mystics and fire-spinners, the sages and tricksters. He curates their tales, combines their elements and lets them rattle around inside his rock-tumbler skull until they gleam, then spills them loose onto the page for like-minded readers to enjoy.

He writes fast-paced stories about real people in fantastic situations, plots with just a twist of the surreal, set in worlds just a shadow’s breadth from our own. He’s the author of the Galvanic Century series of Steampunk Thrillers, the literary apocalyptic short story collection Grief, and the supernatural serial Profane Apotheosis.

In 2012 Michael wrote the pilot for the atmospheric horror transmedia web-series Sleep Study. After two years of hiatus, the series is in pre-production again under the umbrella of his own Chicago-based production company Burning Brigid. When he has a moment of free-time he writes the indie-focused book blog Book Nouveau.
