Una historia corta de tintes lovecraftianos que hila (levemente) el primer libro con el segundo, al presentar un par de personajes secundarios que aparecen en Poison Sleep.

This short Marla Mason gem is set between Blood Engines and Poison Sleep. It features the sorcerer madhouse Blackwing Institute and the mysterious female doctor who runs it.

T.A. Pratt is the pseudonym of Tim Pratt, under which he penned the Marla Mason books.

I've crowdfunded seven projects (four through Kickstarter) successfully in the past few years, and I don't foresee any problems with this one, either. I write novels for a living, and this is a book I'm excited to do. It's always possible there will be bumps and delays on the production process, or an unforeseen
