    Summary

    Every Greek tragedy needs an Antigone or a Danaë. Every King Lear needs a Cordelia.

    Clara Thompson, like everyone around her, is learning to cope in a post-World War I reality. The reality includes Prohibition, which her father (a dirty politician) sees as a chance to consolidate wealth and power. Her pseudo-brother Jimmy is physically back in Atlantic City, but his soul still seems elsewhere. After her father banishes Jimmy to Chicago, Clara chases after him and meets Richard Harrow, a young vet whose war damage isn't confined to his face. Meanwhile, her father's machinations put everyone's lives in danger and contribute to changing familial ties.

    Summary

    You always enjoyed the stories your adopted father would tell you. When he passes away, the books in his shop are all you have left of him. One very strange and incomplete book catches your attention along with a confusing letter addressed to you.

    A twist of fate lands you somewhere in between what is real, what isn’t, and what you have the power to change. Perhaps the old man wasn’t as crazy as you thought he was.

    (Not as Meta as it sounds I swear)

    Summary

    Richard meets a rather successful writer at the Artemis Club and is taken with her in a way he never has before; most baffling to him is that she seems to feel the same way.

    Summary

    Renowned chef Sandor Clegane is 'the mean judge' on The Great Westerosi Bake Off. He hates soggy bottoms, flaccid gingerbread housing, doughy bread, and doesn't the nation know it? Sansa Stark is an amateur cake lover who is just thrilled to be taking part - it's all so exciting to be thrust into the giddy competition with eleven other hopefuls!

    Things do not go according to plan; as everyone knows, lemon drizzle cakes can be most contentious.

    Will Yara's innuendo finally be too much? Will Olenna's machinations raise her grandson to glory? Will Ramsay kill everyone with a sharpened spatula? Is Cersei really that drunk all the damned time? Can Podrick's adorableness break Twitter? Who will be crowned King or Queen of the Tent? Let's bake.
