Two original novellas. This edition limited to 300 numbered copies. In “All the Times of the City”, John Howard evokes resonances across time and alternate realities in a London that is by turns familiar and unfamiliar. Caught in a strange spiral, his characters move in a changing City threatened by amoral plotters driven by greed and ambition. But visions of alternative possibilities, of what might have been, still haunt their City too. This is a deeply imagined story that immerses the reader in a tense and troubling drama. In “Armed for a Day of Glory”, Mark Valentine’s narrator tells us: ‘The Archdeacon thinks I should begin with the Byzantine cloak, the King of Moab with his shewstone, the young archer with the old yew bow, the Dame with the Great Horn, the laird with his lost banner, and Kate with the escaped dragon. They all have their merits and will have their due turn.’ And so they do, in a rip-roaring thriller about an occult conspiracy that only a band of antiquarians and eccentrics can thwart.” #69460
