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. It is also available for the Kindle as part of the Steampunk Omnibus collection.

About Michael Coorlim

See more books from this Author
Even before he could write Michael Coorlim was filling up spiral notebooks with stories, picture books presented to his grandparents as gifts, and performing small plays with his younger cousins for relatives during holiday gatherings. This love of storytelling stayed with him as he grew older, slumbering like an unawakened beast, sending him strange and terrifying dreams during his adolescence.Even when not writing he feasted on the words of authors like Kurt Vonnegut, Terry Pratchet, Douglas Adams, and Ray Bradbury, spending so much time reading from hidden books in the middle of his middle school classes that his grades began to suffer. He'd sneak home with books that his teachers never assigned, and gorge on their contents overnight, and return them stealthily the next day only to take another.Though a prolific writer he found the prospect and process of traditional publication daunting, often preparing query letters and researching markets only to never get around to submitting any of his work. It wasn't until he reached his thirties that he took the steps to write professionally, and by then the self-publishing revolution had already begun.Michael currently lives in the city of Chicago with his girlfriend and their cat, living his childhood dream of supporting himself as an author of fast-paced character-driven fiction about authentic people in fantastic situations.
