Reprints the award-winning novella 'The Women of Nell Gwynne's', plus Nell Gwynne novelette 'The Bohemian Astrolabe'. Both are Victorian-era prequels to the Company universe. Lady Beatrice was the proper daughter of a proper British soldier, until tragedy struck and sent her home to walk the streets of early Victorian London. She is soon recruited to join an underground establishment known as Nell Gwynne's: the finest and most exclusive brothel in Whitehall - and the sister organization to the Gentlemen's Speculative Society, that 19th-century predecessor to a certain Company. When a member of the Society goes missing on a peculiar assignment, it's up to Lady Beatrice and her sister harlots to investigate.

Cook, Glen  
Darkwar: Doomstalker / Warlock / Ceremony
The world grows colder with each passing year, awakening ancient fears within the Dengan Packstead: of invasion by armed nomads; of attack by the witchlike Silth, able to kill with their minds alone; and of the Grauken, that desperate time when intellect gives way to buried cannibalistic instinct. But awakening within Marika, a young pup of the Packstead, is a legendary power that may not just save her world, but allow her to grasp the stars themselves. As Marika's power grows, she embraces new technologies and ever darker magics, seizing control of Silth and barbarians alike, gathering the Packsteads together under her command. But the world grows ever colder. Will Marika save her dying sphere, or will she be the one to destroy it utterly?

Crossley, Robert  
Imagining Mars: A Literary History
For centuries, the planet Mars has captivated astronomers and inspired writers of all genres. Whether imagined as the symbol of the bloody god of war, the cradle of an alien species, or a possible new home for human civilization, our closest planetary neighbor has played a central role in how we think about ourselves in the universe. From Galileo to Kim Stanley Robinson, Crossley traces the history of our fascination with the red planet, focusing on the interplay between scientific discovery and literary invention. Covering texts from the 1600s to the present, from the obscure to the classic, Crossley shows how writing about Mars has reflected the desires and social controversies of each era.
