EXCLUSIVE CONTENT: 100 Word Short Story to Accompany George Mann's new Series Launch - Titan

Hail Mighty Readers,
Our friends at Titan have managed to get us some exclusive content to accompany not only our review of a brand new Steampunk Urban Fantays series but one that we think will have people talking about it for quite some time.

Here is your chance to enjoy a free, exclusive 100 word story in the Newbury and Hobbes series, so without further ado here you go:

They met inside the redbrick grandeur of the Natural History Museum, by the skeletal foot of a Tyrannosaurus rex. He wore his customary black suit, and she a gown of flowing mauve. She smiled sweetly, but he knew he could not trust her. She appeared to be unarmed, but once before he had seen her wield a hatpin as a deadly weapon.

Anything was possible.

“Isn’t it remarkable that creatures such as this once ruled the world?” he said, regarding the ancient beast.

“Creatures like this still rule the world,” she replied, wryly. “That’s exactly what I’m trying to change.”

Newbury and Hobbes Investigations: The Executioner's Heart is released today (12/07/13) from Titan.

As a big fan of the Newbury and Hobbes series, The Executioner's Heart is on my radar. offer the hardcover and Kindle edition published by Tor when you search for "The Executioner's Heart".
Fortunately I read your post today because now I know that there is a paperback edition available.
I checked and then used the found ISBN to check again.
The title of the paperback edition is "Newbury & Hobbes (Newbury & Hobbes 4)" !!
So it seems it is no good idea to use a book title as search parameter at Amazon.

The good thing is that I found one mor Newbury & Hobbes book to be published in September 2013°!!
"The Casebook of Newbury & Hobbes", paperback, ISBN-13: 978-1781167427
