    Summary

    If you asked most people of Daniel J. Howell’s lot in life, they’d tell you it was pretty good. A small career writing for a fashionable magazine, the heir to one of New York’s most prestigious hotels, the convenience of youth and an ailing millionaire father… what more could an 18-year-old ask for?

    So when a night at the symphony turns into the start of a whole new double life in the city’s queer underworld, the heir to New York’s most fashionable hotel will have to learn what is what when you're dating a cabaret singer, and who is who when that singer becomes a troubled star.

    So it’s nothing but fate to blame when things start to fall apart. The catch? It’s the last half of the 1920s–

    And this romance is illegal.

    Summary

    Charles had spared his life. That was not something he could easily repay.

    They wrote letters to each other for two years, until Charles was pulled out of the war from a sudden illness and Erik remained to fight for a cause he didn't believe in.One that ultimately had no effect; one that stole away four years of his life.

    Traumatized and persecuted, Erik applied for a post at Janus, a lighthouse in the middle of the Irish Sea. He thought being alone would do him good.

    Despite the letters and despite the love, Erik didn't expect Charles to find him.

    Summary

    In the last days of the First World War, Dr. Watson returns from the service for which he departed in "His Last Bow," and looks for a new kind of work. He joins Dr. Arthur Hurst in his radical treatment of shell-shocked soldiers. But their work on the forefront of medical research, locked in battle against the destruction of the war, is disrupted by violent death. In addition to the obvious danger near at hand, there is the risk that this will discredit Hurst’s radical methods, and shake his confidence in his ability to cure those who so desperately need his help. Dr. Watson does the only thing he can do: he calls in Holmes. The case will require their joint expertise, and all the wisdom of their shared experience.

    Summary

    Two-hundred years ago there was a Great War that killed both humans and monsters with atomic bombs. Humans sought shelter in Vaults while monsters hid away underneath Mt. Ebbott. Those left above ground perished or turned into what are now known as ghouls, mutants and other disgusting abominations.

    But that was a long time ago!

    You're a wanderer and you're too busy trying to make a new life in this strange city mixed with humans, monsters and ghouls. Will you be able to turn your disgusting, trashy and uneducated life around? Or will a certain skeleton-ghoul duo make your life a living hell?

    Sheesh, life in the wasteland is so hard!

    Summary

    The woman is tall, though not taller than her. Her hair is trimmed in the style popular among men, and a glass of whiskey glows in her gloved hand. As she drinks from it, tipping it back, her throat bobs. Her suit is of the finest pile-on-pile velvet, patterns of swirling botanicals enveloping her body. Credence adores stitching velvet, and she wishes more customers would request it, but silk is in season.

    The woman’s eyes lock with Credence’s, and a slow smile spreads across her face.

    Or the one where Credence is a seamstress working in Paris, and Graves is a wealthy socialite with a love of art, and an eye for beauty.

    Summary

    The end of the First World War brings change and an ever-evolving political landscape that the Nations must learn to navigate. Their once clear-cut roles in society are now being questioned, and the rising Axis Powers pose a threat to their safety.

In doing so, they make their own self-discoveries about who they are as people, and what they truly want in life.
