    Summary

    Harrow could see through the open top the lurid, brightly-printed covers of cheap pulp magazines. CULT SECRETS: THE STRANGE REVENGE OF THE SCARLET BOUNTY HUNTERS! read the issue on the left. DOUBLE FEATURE TROUBLE! read the one on the right, THE HANDMAIDENS OF SUBTERRANEA! TERROR ON THE JOVIAN FRONTIER! It showed a malformed pterodactyl attacking a woman wearing what must have been a really large red sheet, set against the backdrop of a huge pile of jewels.

    "Ugh," said Harrow, who had secretly been hoping the box contained a skeleton.

    Or: Gideon Nav and Harrowhark Nonagesimus grow up together in the shadow of the Ninth House cult.

    Summary

    Sometimes Harrow imagines Gideon as a gallant prince, kissing her hand instead of punching her in the face. But that image is nauseating, and the punching has its own appeal. It's something Harrow knows how to respond to. She finds herself hungry for it in a way she can't imagine being hungry for gallantry. She deserves to be punched and Gideon deserves whatever horrible web Harrow can weave in return.

    Summary

    When attempting to time travel at thirteen, Five manages to land himself at the end of a different world than his own. Meanwhile, Klaus has been surviving alone, barely holding the grief and ghosts and monsters at bay. He didn't expect to be suddenly met with a thirteen-year-old version of the brother he buried years ago, but whatever, he's adaptable. And he's going to keep Five alive until he can get back to his own universe. Whatever it takes.

    (Or: Klaus and Five versus a zombie apocalypse.)

    Summary

    Ianthe hasn’t seen Harrow in over a year, which still feels like a meaningful unit of absence, even though two decades into her eternal youth she’s been trying to teach herself to think differently about time.

    Still, she spares an indulgent thought to considering how this reunion might have felt, if they were aging normally. She would have been forty-something, which seems like it might have been an appropriate age for her and Harrowhark to be halfway through their second bitter divorce.

    Or: twenty years after Canaan house, Harrow and Ianthe on a planet of swamps and roses.
