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.
This collection contains the first four Galvanic Century series novellas: "And They Called Her Spider," "Maiden Voyage of the Rio Grande," "On the Trail of the Scissorman," and "A Matter of Spirit."
Praise for The Collected Bartleby and James Adventures:
"It took Michael Coorlim only a few lines to hook me due to his eloquent while not overly florid style... [the stories are] swift, intriguing and ingenious, plus there is a pertinent social commentary that drives each of them. A brilliant work indeed!"
"I am literally chomping at the bit for more."
"This is one of the better steampunk series I've read. It has some nicely grotesque moments and strange science and technology, satisfying mysteries, well-done characterization, some nice appearances by characters from other works of literature"
"The author is a clearly skilled wordsmith as evidenced by the clear images brought forth in the telling."
