New York Times Bestselling author Gail Carriger writes to cope with being raised in obscurity by an expatriate Brit and an incurable curmudgeon. She escaped small town life and inadvertently acquired several degrees in Higher Learning. Ms. Carriger then traveled the historic cities of Europe, subsisting entirely on biscuits secreted in her handbag. She resides in the Colonies, surrounded by fantastic shoes, where she insists on tea imported from London. She is fond of teeny tiny hats and tropical fruit.
The Parasol Protectorate books are: Soulless, Changeless, Blameless, Heartless, and Timeless (March 2012). Soulless won the ALA's Alex Award. She is currently writing young adult books set in the same universe ~ the Finishing School series.

Whilst I didn't think this short story was as strong as Carriger's longer works, it was a fun, quick read. I liked the humour and thought the tea cup communicators were fantastic!
