    It is difficult to overestimate the effect that Leandra da Valmadrera had on the Renaissance, and hence on the development of European thought and later cultural, economic and social movements that enveloped our globe. An alternate history, where science unfolds on its predictable lines, and, looking back, we see Leandra da Valmadrera and her works as the starting point for the flourishing society we have now.

    Summary

    Alys, a maidservant in 1430s England, dreams of learning to read and write. But the only person willing to teach her drives a hard bargain, and the errand she must perform in return draws her through a fantastical world of astrology and alchemy, into a female realm far beneath the earth.

    Mercuriouser and curiouser. If you've ever wondered what the feminine of 'mandrake' is, whether the way up is the way down, or how bulls feel about certain China-shop-related slanders, then read on ...

    Summary

    There’s something not right with the Bridge at the Tay —
    there’s bits of it strewn on the silt beneath.

    was ablaze when it fell — that the wind was alive —
    that there were only forty six bodies —
    only forty six, on a loaded train. I ask you.
