Paperback - 308 pages Award winning steampunk from a master! Balloons were the only way to fly in 1840, and air safety standards were the stuff of science fiction. A modern day librarian in London is about to reserve a book for a Regency serial killer. When you think about it, they had the skills and materials to build a steam engine in 1449.

A steampunk story written before steampunk was invented. It is 1303, and medieval aviation is about to get some serious funding in the name of love. If the Soviets had been a little better at quality control, the race to the moon might have gone a bit differently. The young Dragon Librarian Zarvora has an idea for a 2 Kilo-Slave computer. She is willing to shoot her way to the top to get funding for it. (a prequel story to the Greatwinter Trilogy) Some very brave people in 1852 are about to fly the first steam powered aircraft, and diet will mean the difference between life and death.
