Next up, is revisiting Elizabeth Moon's Paksennarrion trilogy and then on to the more recent work Oath of Fealty. It has been quite a while since I first read this saga but I remember being totally wrapped up in t.
This time, it's "The Bullet-Catcher's Daughter", by Rod Duncan (touchstones don't seem to be working for me today) and the locale is, not surprisingly, an alt-Victorian England. I'm still early in the story, but it's definitely planted more solidly in the steampunk genre than my other recent "steampunk" read was, and the setup is engaging so far. I love stories with a mystery or detective angle, and the thread of the protagonist having a circus/gypsy-type background and using those skills in her line of work is a nice point of origin that's got my attention.
