Book description:
A short tale of mummies, werewolves, and well-preserved felines set in the world of the Parasol Protectorate.

Alessandro Tarabotti and his valet, Floote, are on a mission in Egypt when they encounter visiting tourists and the situation turns to mummies. What is Alessandro’s real mission and will his Aunt Archangelica approve of his treatment of her cat?

In this short story,
New York Times best selling author Gail Carriger uses her comedic voice to delve into the history of her beloved steampunk universe.

If you have ever wondered about Alexia’s father, this will give you a glimpse into his adventures, character, and romantic interests.


First "book" of the year is actually a short story, but Gail is hosting a Parasolverse readalong leading up to the release of Reticence this summer, and the first story in the reading list is this short story about Alexia Tarabotti's father, Alessandro. It's a very fast read, and a much too short introduction to Alessandro Tarabotti, but Carriger manages to drop several clues about plot points that eventually show up in all three of her main series.
