Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences short story: "Night's Plutonian Shore"

I’m proud to announce that Tee Morris and Pip Ballantine have released part 1 of my two-part story, “Night’s Plutonian Shore” for their “Tales from the Archives” podcast fiction anthology, set in the Victorian Steampunk world of their Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences novel(s). As described by Tee and Pip:
This epic tale opens in 1849 when a poet is murdered in the streets of Baltimore. The man behind the seemingly random murder manages to elude the law until — in 1889 — Agents Bruce Campbell and Brandon Hill track him down. The assassin, Mikael Scharnusser, gives the slip to the agents on revealing his “talent” and the madman’s intentions to bring down the House of Usher.

The early reception has been wonderful. You can hear the story here:

It was an honor to be invited.

14 years I’ve been in this house. It’s the longest I’ve ever lived in one place, besides the home I grew up in. Now, all my stuff is boxed up and ready to move to the new home. It’s somewhat surreal right now around here. On the one hand, we’re excited about the new place and all that we’ve put into it. On the other, we’re pulling away from the place in which we’ve built our family and many many memories. It’s going to get really weird on Friday when this place has been emptied out.
