Gail Carriger is coming to Seattle! NEXT WEEKEND.
Gail Carriger is the mastermind behind the steampunk, fantasy, romance, adventure, comedy-of-manners series, The Parasol Protectorate starring Ms. Alexia Tarabotti. Alexia's Italian (gasp!) father has left her with quite a large nose, unfortunately tan skin, and her ridiculous mother and her silly step-sisters (and you thought the Bennet women were silly). What is perhaps all the more interesting, however, is what she has not: a soul. With a fantastic cast of characters, yes, including vampires and werewolves, but this is not Twilight fan-fiction, Alexia addresses some new supernatural disturbances occurring in London -- that are indeed most disturbing to her! -- while never missing tea and generally shocking the neighbors.
