    Summary

    They say the first time one makes a mistake is an accident. The second, fourth, sixth times, however, matter. The way Jopson’s gaze lingers. His eyes are blue like porcelain; his gaze is just as fragile. Edward could break the eye contact to pieces. The slightest tremor of disapproval would be instantly noticed.

    The problem is, he doesn’t disapprove of Jopson’s scrutiny. He’s intrigued by it. Pleased.

    Summary

    “You loved him, didn’t you?”

    Lady Ann Ross awakens in the afterlife and discovers that the answers to the questions she and her husband have had about the Franklin expedition might finally be within her grasp.

    A Prequel to “A World That Was Meant for Our Eyes to See,” probably best read after that story.

    Summary

    "You have done that before, then?" Francis said, and wanted to roll his eyes at himself for that indelicate, indirect phrasing.

    "What?" 

    "Buggery."

    "Francis…" James said indulgently, a slow smile on his face as he perched an elbow on his knee and leant forward. "What do you think we have been doing?"

    "No - yes I know . I mean doing the buggering?"
