From the Archives: Night of the Manticore

It appears that Abyss & Apex¬†is no longer charging for access to their past issues. I have three stories published there that I am very fond of, and am glad they are now free-to-read. I’ll introduce¬†one a day here.

The first A&A story is my 2010 novelette “Night of the Manticore“. Set in the same steampunk world as “The Curse of Chimere” (Beneath Ceaseless Skies), this features Professor Tremaine Voss at a most unusual dinner that soon turns deadly. The good professor has featured in a previous story (“Sphinx!”) as well, and I have further adventures planned for him soon.
