A collection of nine steampunk stories drawn from the archives of the Etheric Explorers Club, a Victorian society dedicated to exploring the mysteries of the etheric realm... The visions of a Russian painter in fin-de-si?cle Paris... a terrible weapon that almost no-one has survived... a confession within a confession... a crime from antiquity resurfacing -beneath- the Thames... a desperate search for a lost sister... a contemporary horror entwined with an ancient manuscript... an experiment gone wrong... a lost world which should have remained lost... and a night of dining, death, and romance.
Ether Frolics was short-listed for the 16th annual Danuta Gleed Literary Award, recognizing the best debut English-language collection of short fiction by a Canadian author.
