The Fantastic Cases of Gwen Conner
I now have all the Gwen Conner fantasy/mystery short stories, the ones I've been publishing as ebook shorts, placed into one collection, The Fantastic Cases of Gwen Conner. Here's the back cover blurb:
Gwen Conner’s world isn’t your typical fantasy setting. She solves mysteries in a land where magic is used to create telephones, dictation machines, and streetcars. It’s also a world of scheming criminals, cheating spouses, and charming con artists. This collection contains nine Gwen Conner stories, plus three more set in her world. These stories have appeared in Tales of the Talisman and Pulp Empire, among others. Included are:
Spook Wagon: An ex-girlfriend of Gwen’s brother asks Gwen for help. The young woman’s hometown wants to build a power plant, but a ghostly wagon has the town on edge. Who’s behind the wagon? Are they trying to stop the project?
The “Affair” of the Love Letters: A woman who once loved an up-and-coming politician comes to Gwen. Someone wants the letters he wrote to the woman, and doesn’t want to take “no” for an answer.
A Lady Never Knows: A police officer asks Gwen to deliver a ransom to kidnappers. Can magic help her avoid danger when she meets the criminals?
The collection is available in print and as an ebook. Check your favorite retailer, or come to my table at one of my events this autumn and pick one up.
