Chris McGrath asked Mary Robinette Kowal:

I've really enjoyed the short stories of yours that I've read (A Fire in the Heavens, The Lady Astronaut of Mars, First Flight), and I'd like to read a full novel, but your Glamourist Histories concept is just not really up my alley. Do you have any imminent plans to write a novel outside this series?

Mary Robinette Kowal Yes.

But. I think you are being turned off by a perception that Regency means that it will be girly and romancy and that you won't like those. Looking at the stories of mine that you like, there's nothing in here that would be a turn off. In other words, you already like the girly romancy stuff I do. Still nervous? Start with the fourth book, VALOUR AND VANITY, which is a heist novel and can be read as a standalone.
