I really enjoyed this story! It was a quick read, but cute and sweet and fun. It was cleanly written and it was apparent that the author knew the subject. I just wish it was longer-- like novella or novel length. I want to read more of Margaret and Amelia's adventures!

Too short by half, but lots of fun and lots of twists. Certainly I could not guess what would happen next.
I read Dalston Junction in the anthology Other Sides: 12 Webfiction Tales. I have to admit I was quite appalled at what I suspected was going on when I first started reading this story, but I absolutely loved the ending. It was definitely not what I was expecting.

I'm glad I picked up Other Sides: 12 Webfiction Tales, as I found a new author to investigate! :)
I picked this up when it was free, but it was better than half the SF short fiction that I pay for in Asimov's and Analog. Amazing how much gets packed in such a little story. Great setting, and great ending.
This is the first time I'd heard of "Baby Farmers". Scary, to say the least.

MeiLin Miranda writes literary fantasy and science fiction set in Victorian worlds. Her love of all things 19th century (except for the pesky parts like cholera, child labor, slavery and no rights for women) has consumed her since childhood, when she fell in a stack of Louisa May Alcott and never got up.

MeiLin wrote nonfiction for thirty years, in radio, television, print and the web. She always w
