Æther Feature: Cover Reveal— The Perils of Prague

by Ministry Admin on March 27, 2017

Today the Ministry is honoured to be part of the cover reveal for the Perils of Prague, the first in a new series of novels, by Doc Coleman.

You will, dear reader, remember Doc from his Tales from the Archives episode, The Cross of Columba.

The Perils of Prague is the first in the Adventures of Crackle and Bang- so it sounds entirely like something Miss Braun would enjoy.

Victoria, the Eternal Empress, has sat the throne of the British Empire for over 150 years. Her policies have brought peace to the world by suppressing the development of “dangerous technologies”, and where that has failed, her Imperial Troops, with their lightning rifles, have swiftly brought order. But there are still those who chafe at the yoke of peace.
When an evening’s entertainment in the British Protectorate of Bohemia unexpectedly leads to the destruction of the State Opera House of Prague, the eccentricity brilliant Professor Harmonious Crackle and his beautiful colleague Miss Titania Bang must team up with the Duke of Prague’s nephew and hunt down the evil genius responsible. Can they find him and stop him before he unleashes his new technology to terrorize the city and threaten the stability of the British Empire, and the Eternal Empress herself?
In a race against an unknown menace, this intrepid trio must search high and low and discover The Perils of Prague!

Without further ado, here is the lovely cover art. Pre-order now on Amazon and don’t miss this wonderful story when it releases

And here is a sample to whet your whistle. 

“You’re serious!” Miss Bang’s brow was creased in ire. The hint of fire blazed behind her eyes.
He blinked at her. “Of course, I’m serious. Such a joke would be in very bad taste!”
“I don’t believe anyone ever accused my great-grandfather of having good taste,” I commented ruefully.
The professor turned to me. “Your great-grandfather was actually quite a thoughtful fellow in his youth. He did throw the most excellent parties. I never did find out what made him such a misanthrope as he got older. I’d often wondered… Wait! Wait, I was going to tell you something. Something I’d just discovered.” He looked down at the wing in his hand. “Yes! That was it! You remember the birds, the clockwork birds?”
I nodded. “Yes, Professor. It was just earlier this morning.” I wondered if it was still morning.
Professor Crackle nodded vigorously. “Yes, they’re a perfect recreation of the living creature. Or at least as best as I can tell, given the damage the sample sustained. If only I could examine an intact specimen.”
Miss Bang spoke up. “You’re drifting again, Harmonious.”
“No, no, no, no! This is important. Did you get a good look at the singers? The male and female leads?”
“At the opera?” I asked. I wasn’t quite sure where he was leading.
“Yes! Did you get a good look at them?” He seemed very agitated as he leaned toward me for my answer.
“Well, Professor, I am afraid I wasn’t really concentrating on them for most of the performance. And when things livened up at the end, my attention was, well… on other things.”
“And you, Titania?” He whirled to face Miss Bang.
“Other than the final song, they seemed quite capable, although somewhat uninspired performers.” She paused in thought for a moment, touching one finger to her lips. “I’m not sure how to describe the final performance.”
“Drat. I hoped one of you got a better look. Now we shall have to find what is left of them.” The professor moved back to his workbench and put down the wing and his loupe.
“You want to go find their bodies, Professor? Isn’t that a task better left to the police?” I did not fancy the idea of sifting through the rubble for pieces of the dead performers.
He turned to me. “Their remains, yes. But their bodies, I think not.” He lifted the wing again and shook it to illustrate his point. “I think they were clockwork.”
“A clockwork man? How is that possible?” I looked to Miss Bang, but she seemed fascinated by the idea.
“But such intricate detail, Harmonious… and such a complex series of actions to perform upon the stage. They were actually singing. It wasn’t a phonograph recording. Even with the latest equipment, one can tell the difference. I’ve never heard of an automaton that could truly sing.”
“Yes!” The professor looked like a child who had been promised a new pony. “Exactly! Such perfect duplication of the living form! When I went down on the stage and examined the woman, she looked otherwise normal except for the side of her face. The flesh sagged under a weight. I think a piece detached from the underlying support structure and dragged it out of shape. I believe the same person who made these birds constructed the opera singers as well. But I need more evidence. We need to find what is left of those performers.”
“So, we’re going back to the opera house?” Miss Bang asked.
“Yes! Well, no! We’re already there. I’m sorry about the little detour, my boy, but I’m certain your uncle is going to want to see whatever evidence we can find.”
“Surely he will be worried about my disappearance? Perhaps it would be best to just drop me off first and I can explain your theory to Uncle Randolph?” Much as I would like to avoid his wrath, putting off seeing my uncle could only make things worse.
“After losing a major landmark?” Professor Crackle asked. “Don’t be ridiculous! He may be worried, but he will have hardly a moment to think on it. No, trust me, even if you went back now you wouldn’t be able to get in to see him. But if we can find something to prove it wasn’t an accident, we’ll be able to get right in to see the duke.”
“And the police, Professor?” I asked, wondering what Inspector Janecek would think about the professor’s clockwork people theory.
“Yes, we must get there before they do! The last thing we need is for them to tromp all over everything and destroy the evidence we need.” He grabbed a pair of goggles off of a bench and strode through the door. “Come along!”
“But, but that’s not what I meant!” I sputtered and hurried to catch up to Miss Bang as she swept out of the room in the professor’s wake.

Audiobooks for the New Year

by Ministry Admin on February 2, 2017

Our journalists have finished the recording of not one…but two audiobooks.

The first is the Curse of the Silver Pharaoh, our first young adult title which was released in print and ebook format in September. Back then it hit #1 on Amazon in Teen and Young Adult steampunk. We were ever so chuffed about that.

Now it is available for your ears, and read by Pip Ballantine.

While Verity Fitzroy loses herself in magical mechanizations and fantastical science of London, she harbours secrets of the death of her parents, of a mystery she can’t leave alone, and of her power over machinery that both excites and terrifies her. Verity is part of the Ministry Seven, street orphans that work for Agent Harrison Thorne of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences. Under his guidance, a whole new adventure begins for them all, investigating the strange, the unusual, and the bizarre.

When an Egyptologist from the British Museum is kidnapped, the only clue leads to the Delancy Academy, an elite school for gifted, young scientists. Now the Seven are called upon to go where Ministry agents cannot, and within the school Verity uncovers an ancient evil that could herald the end of the world. 

The Seven set down a dangerous path of intrigue, mystery, and murder; and find that ancient curses are especially difficult to contend with when you have Chemistry assignments due the next day.


Then there came the erotic parody, Countless Hues of Crimson. Made possible by our wonderful Kickstarter backers, this tale of a book within a book is also now available in audiobook format.

For her sins, Pip Ballantine also narrated this novelette.

Anastasia Brassingware is a daughter of English aristocracy, but her station has been brought low by her father’s belief in ridiculous quick schemes. Now forced into penury, she must take any menial job.

A chance meeting with enigmatic pineapple merchant, Lord Heathcliff Redd, has changed everything. Drawn in by his brooding ways, the maiden discovers the pineapple merchant’s darker pleasures, and technological wonders that do more than just core his tropical bounties with ease.

Take caution, dear listener. This is a novel of shadow, of desire, and of wanton lust. This novella is not a collection of standing orders for a clandestine organization within Her Majesty’s government. No sir. No how. No way. Nowhere in this scintillating novel of erotic perversion are coded messages intended for agents that investigate the strange, the bizarre, and the unnatural. No. In this novella is good British smut, just the way God intended. This is the story of a wide-eyed ingénue innocent to carnal pleasures, a wealthy English lord with a pineapple fetish, and fresh fruit bending to their will.

No standing orders whatsoever.

All the Hues

by Ministry Admin on January 12, 2017

The Kickstarter of 2015 was a rousing success, and the Ministry raised enough money to do two books. However we also made enough to reach our somewhat ridiculous goal of funding Countless Hues of Crimson.

If you remember Dawn’s Early Light, this is the book within that book. When things get a little dangerous for the Ministry agents, the use a cardan grill on this surprisingly popular steampunk erotic book.

So here it is, the Kickstarted piece of parody, now available in ebook, and soon in audio and print.

Buy here or read through Kindle Unlimited.

Tales from the Archives: A 2016 Christmas Special

by Ministry Admin on December 24, 2016

A Very Happy Christmas
from the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences

The Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences has many forgotten stories in its Archives. Stories of madcap adventures in all corners of the Empire, dark doings in hidden places, and mysterious devices and artifacts that the everyday citizen should never become aware of for fear it would quite undo their minds.

We begin our fifth and “final” season of our award-winning æthercast with a special holiday story taking place during the events of the award-nominated novel, The Diamond Conspiracy…

In this episode:

Home Alone for the Holidays

Written by Tee Morris
Based on an idea from Nathan P. Lilly

Christmas, 1896

It was asked what Archimedes kept himself up to when Wellington Books was out and about on missions for the Ministry. On this Christmas, after months of being away, we look in on the Archivist’s cat. It would appear to be a quiet holiday for the feline, but there are nefarious forces about.

Fortunately, Archimedes nurtures special talents of his own.

And coming in March 2016…

Thanks for listening!
Feel free to leave us a review on iTunes or Stitcher
and share our work with a friend.

A Jolly Bundle for the Holidays

by Ministry Admin on December 15, 2016

We here at the Ministry love a good deal. We buy our tea in bulk, and head to the shops on Boxing Day for the sales.

Our journalists also love a good deal, and apparently being part of one.

Last week they were part of the release Gears & Goggles: a Steampunk Collection. Their collection Magical Mechanications is among the wonderful offerings.

Travel diagonally in time to worlds of steampunk adventure, where the airships fly straight and true and the best cars are powered by steam. Where mad science has run amok and strange creatures haunt the foggy streets. Intrigue, mystery, gadgets, and corsets—find everything you love in a great steampunk story in this bundle of seven novels and novellas. 

Gears and GogglesAnd how much would you pay for such a thing? Well apparently, not very much. Far less than one of those fancy coffees we here are popular with the younger set.

Yes, a mere 99c American! Not even one of their shiny dollars.

But hurry now because this deal is for a limited time.
