Dark Quest Books has published my steampunk tale, “A Cat’s Cry in Pluto’s Kitchen,” in A Clockwork Chaos, edited by Danielle Ackley-McPhail and Neal Levin, available in print and ebook. Although this is the second story of Morris Garvey and Machinations Sundry to be published, it’s actually the first one I wrote. Mystery and danger surround a stolen violin when the Cult of Bast returns to New Alexandria, and Morris Garvey must uncover the true motive behind the theft. The first published Machinations Sundry tale, “House of Automatons,” appeared in In an Iron Cage. The third Machinations Sundry story, “In Wolf’s Clothing,” is due out in 2014, details to come. A Clockwork Chaos include stories by Jeff Young, CJ Henderson, Patrick Thomas, Angel Leigh McCoy, James Daniel Ross, Gail Gray, N.R. Brown, and many other fine writers.
