    Bookmarker's Notes

    Centuries from now, an English teacher on the colony planet of Sergyar tries to introduce her students to Shakespeare's plays. But are Macbeth's anxieties about succession still relevant in a world of artificial wombs and three-parent babies?

    This is set in the Vorkosigan universe, but it centres around original characters, so you don't need to have read Bujold's novels to understand it. (But please read them anyway, because they're brilliant.)

    What do you do if you've hired a pineapple for your dinner-party - and some inconsiderate so-and-so goes and EATS it?

    Summary

    Jonathan Harker failed to get back to normal life after his Transylvanian experience. One case reunited him with Professor Abraham Van Helsing, and – meet "Helsing & Harker", the legal advice firm, ready to help clients from both sides of reality. Later they got the third team member, a French emigrant Erik a.k.a the Phantom of the Opera. He needed a job, didn't mind risky tasks and gladly added a little chaos to the standoffish English life.

    The trio has a lot to do. A beast of prey, too clever and cruel to be just an animal, terrorizes the streets of London. Some daring burglars intruded the British Museum and left without any of its treasures except for one ancient mummy. Jonathan's friend is wrongly accused of murder. And a striking woman named Irene Adler has a new acquaintance, a young nobleman from Transylvania, Count Aurel. Yes, a vampire is in London again, and this time he is the "Helsing & Harker" client! Apparently, this will bring no good.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Gloriously multiple crossover: Jonathan Harker, Professor Van Helsing, Irene Adler and the Phantom of the Opera are working together to rescue a young vampire being held hostage by Dorian Gray. Beautifully written story, and nicely balanced between humour and dramatic action.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    One of Shakespeare's most hopeless characters gets to be a hero and find love in the most unexpected place - ancient Babylon. Splendidly silly story with puns so bad that Shakespeare would have loved them.
