Black Coat Press has posted an excerpt of the forthcoming anthology Tales of the Shadowmen: Femmes Fatales, and my short "Nadine's Invitation" has been selected as the teaser. The story is the second in the regencypunk "Road to Would Newton" series, describing how certain illustrious persons came to be at Would Newton,* England, on 13 December 1795. The first in the series, the Scarlet Pimpernel tale "Is He in Hell?" apppeared in Tales of the Shadowmen: Grand Guignol (Jan 2010), and then was revised for The Worlds of Philip Jose Farmer 1: Protean Dimensions (Meteor House, June 2010).
* Would is an accurate spelling, appropriate for the time period.
