Five stories of queer romance with magic, horror, theft, scheming and defenestration. The first print collection of novellas and short stories by KJ Charles.
A light-fingered drifter encounters a landless earl... A music hall singer finds the man of her dreams in a thieves' kitchen... A detective is plunged into a Christmas conspiracy... A rogue magician needs the help of a waste-paper seller... Chaos reigns in a dark and twisted alt-Victorian London...
KJ Charles' shorter stories are collected in print for the first time, in five tales of queer historical romance spiced with song, larceny, mayhem, magic, and defenestration (just the one, though).
Contents: A Thief in the Night, The Rat-Catcher's Daughter, Masters in This Hall, A Queer Trade, The Price of Meat
