The Long-Cursed Map

by Dawn Vogel

The Long-Cursed Map
Part of the Brass and Glass series:

In the stormy skies of the Republic, it's not always easy to catch a favorable wind ...

On the hunt for a legendary, cursed map that leads to treasure unimaginable, the crew of The Silent Monsoon, led by the pertinacious Captain Svetlana Tereshchenko, soon discover they aren't the only ones hunting for riches. But there's more than gold at stake in this pursuit. The Last Emperor's Hoard is rumored to contain the Gem of the Seas, a device that gives its owner the power to control the oceans.

Wanted by the Air Fleet and dogged by spectres both real and imagined, Svetlana and her crew will have to call in every favor and pull every string—even if it means stirring up more ghosts—to complete the map before the High Council does. This race will require courage, determination, and sacrifice. Will Svetlana have what it takes to win, or will the map's curse be too high a price?

Crossing the Streams

by Jeremy Zimmerman

Non-human romance. Tarot-powered difference engines. The bureaucracy of the gate to Hell. These and more appear in this anthology of strange stories by Jeremy Zimmerman. This anthology collects five genre-bending tales from fantasy to steampunk to cyberpunk.

Reviews:KJ Hannah Greenberg on Tangent wrote:

"I won’t spoil the ending, but I will offer that the imagery in this tale is so wonderful that the settings sometimes transported me away from the main character’s conflict. The scenes in this story, like Impressionist art, consist of ordinary subjects displayed in mesmerizingly vacillating light. Whereas I usually care most about plot and about character development, these descriptions were so robust that I would gladly read additional pages of Zimmerman’s work just to reimmerse myself in his language."

Lillian Cohen-Moore wrote:

"Unchained Melody is a sharp, beautiful blow to the heart. Zimmerman wrote a heroine who is recognizable; a woman who is defining herself, on her terms."
