It’s no secret I like George Mann’s Newbury & Hobbes stories, so I’m thrilled to see that Amazon has the cover and synopsis of Mann’s The Casebook of Newbury & Hobbes, a collection of short fiction featuring the pair of steampunk-era detectives.
Here’s the official synopsis:
A collection of short stories detailing the supernatural steampunk adventures of detective duo, Sir Maurice Newbury and Miss Veronica Hobbes in dark and dangerous Victorian London. Along with Chief Inspector Bainbridge, Newbury & Hobbes will face plague revenants, murderous peers, mechanical beasts, tentacled leviathans, reanimated pygmies, and an encounter with Sherlock Holmes.
