back for more investigations into the dangerously weird and weirdly
The vacationing Americans are hitting Victorian England hard in three
horror stories that pit them against reborn Celtic gods, robots from
outer space, a brilliant French botanist, and an Arthurian wizard.
In “Thanksgiving at the House of Absinthe & Steam,” a wild night of
drinking a new brand of absinthe leads to a disturbing revelation
about just how those drinks are created.
“God in the Steam” sees Hanna & Jill facing off against a Celtic god
trying to break the chains of Hell by murdering his half-human son.
“The Worldly Introduction of Lady Absinthe & Gentleman Steam, Occult
Detectives” ties both stories together, and this time it’s a
brainwashed Jill that needs to hire someone to help her with a case of
the weird: her mistress, Haneul, is determined to bring Merlin back
from the dead to assassinate Queen Victoria!
