Chosen because my interest in the Crimson Petal and the White was reignited by the recent TV adaption.

This is a simple selection of (very) short stories based around the characters from the original book - sometimes telling the back story, sometimes telling future generations.

Its of the same quirky style as the original, with is anachronistic tales of victoriania.

Its a bit like the DVD extras that you get on a series DVD. Not strong enough to stand up on its own - too good to through away.

A quirkly reminder of a much bigger tombe that leaves a mark on any reader.

And the TV series was superb as well.
