christmas present for those who like mysteries and victoriana

I kind of love Mr. Scott Pack, so when he talks about someone’s fabulosity, I take notice.

Lee Jackson, proprietor of one of my favorite Victoriana sites, The Victorian Dictionary, also apparently writes Victorian mystery novels—and we all know how I feel about Victorian mystery novels. (These were only available in the UK as far as I can tell, so I fell slightly less bad about my ignorance of them.) But I guess the books wasn’t selling well enough, so his publisher didn’t re-sign him. BUT. Being the awesome person that he is (I mean, he runs a website about Victorian England, he is obviously very high on the cool hierarchy), Jackson is posting his newest novel online for free.

SO. Click here to read it.

And click here to read Mr. Pack’s original blog post, which I basically just copied.

Merry Christmas!
