We here at the Ministry are celebrating not only our win at the Steampunk Chronicle’s Readers Choice award, but first month of Dawn’s Early Light being out in the wilds of publishing.
To that ends, we are giving away Silver Linings. This short story is set between Phoenix Rising and the Janus Affair.
Please download, and share this story where ever you can.
Wellington Books and Eliza D. Braun arrive in Cairo, Egypt, sent from Ministry headquarters on an archival audit. What Wellington hopes will be a stay in the cradle of civilization and a break from the bitter winter of England instead looks to be a brief visit on account of Eliza’s poor attitude and the disdain of the area field director, Marcus Donahue.
The plans for an uneventful collection of case documents and artifacts are soon shattered by a massacre that that can only be described by the visiting archivists as peculiar.
