Moral Authority, Men of Science, and the Victorian Novel by Anne DeWitt
Rate this book
Clear rating
I read this selectively for a paper I'm writing; I found the gendered division between "women's" morality and "men's" science relevant to my work, as well as the ways in which science and religion rhetorically vied to claim the moral high ground (e.g...more

This series is self-published and, IMO, vindicates self-publishing from its critics. I enjoyed all of the novels and spin-offs in this series, which contains fantasy and politics with a dash of steampunk and science fiction and a sweet sprinkle of ro...more

Anatomy of Murder by Imogen Robertson

18th century London, murder, tall ships, opera, forensics, London, castrati, treason, Tarot, asylums, a shockingly unfeminine investigator and a bitingly misanthropic anatomist. What's not to love? Better than #1. I'm looking forward to #3!

“There ain't a man in the world cares about a woman's past until he's thinking of her in his future.”
Dru Pagliassotti, Clockwork Heart

“A clockwork heart can't replace the real thing.”
Dru Pagliassotti, Clockwork Heart

“Huh? Oh you have a hidden agenda, do you?" She laughed. His straight-faced humor always surprised her. "You promised me you didn't."
"There is nothing hidden about it," he replied. My objective is obvious. I've decided I'd rather have you describe me as 'sweet' than a 'slagging pain in the tailset.'"
"Really?"
"Well..." he looked up from the bag. "Maybe not in public."
"I might be able to confine myself to saying it in private, if you gave me a reason." Taya met his eyes, and he blushed.”
Dru Pagliassotti, Clockwork Heart
