When I said Bill Schafer of Subterranean Press was phenomenal, it was not an understatement. He has also has graciously offered five copies of Kage Baker’s The Women of Nell Gwynne’s to Tor.com readers for our Steampunk Month giveaways! This book is sold out from Sub Press, so the winners of this particular title are even more lucky than your average randomly selected winner. Here’s the summary:
Lady Beatrice was the proper British daughter of a proper British soldier, until tragedy struck and sent her home to walk the streets of early-Victorian London. But Lady Beatrice is no ordinary whore, and is soon recruited to join an underground establishment known as Nell Gwynne’s. Nell Gwynne’s is far more than simply the finest and most exclusive brothel in Whitehall; it is in fact the sister organization to the Gentlemen’s Speculative Society, that 19th-century predecessor to a certain Company...and when a member of the Society goes missing on a peculiar assignment, it’s up to Lady Beatrice and her sister harlots to investigate.
Not sufficiently persuaded? Read the excerpt on Sub Press. Not enough? Read Kage Baker’s exceptional Ancient Rockets series here on Tor.com for a sample of her many talents. Still not intrigued? You’re broken; there really is no other explanation.
