    Soulless by Gail Carriger

    Alexia Tarabotti is laboring under a great many social tribulations. First, she has no soul. Second, she’s a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she was rudely attacked by a vampire, breaking all standards of social etiquette.

    Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire — and then the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf) is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate.

    With unexpected vampires appearing and expected vampires disappearing, everyone seems to believe Alexia responsible. Can she figure out what is actually happening to London’s high society? Will her soulless ability to negate supernatural powers prove useful or just plain embarrassing? Finally, who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart?

    SOULLESS is the first book of the Parasol Protectorate series: a comedy of manners set in Victorian London, full of werewolves, vampires, dirigibles, and tea-drinking. (Amazon summary)

    Could an admin please post the above June Babbage Book Discussion on the calendar?

    I can’t figure out how to do it myself.

    I can’t figure out how to post something as an event. Could the Resource Guide/Posting Guidelines be updated? It still references to how the old forums worked.

    I need to be able to put this on the calendar and edit the location from time to time, please?

    Russell Eponym Musical Salon Every Other Tuesday

    Tuesday, March 26th 2pmslt, Tuesday, April 9th 2-4pm slt

    what, what? A weekday musical entertainment and storytelling followed by an informal social salon? Why yes! :)
    March 26 and April 9 this event will be here at Dark Alice where we may dance or have tea:

    Please join me every other Tuesday at 2PMSLT as Russell Eponym gathers us together for an hour to Russell Eponym gathers us together for an hour to regale us with stories and live music followed by a social hour of readings and conversation in text and voice. Nring reading materials you’d like to share in voice or text, your own or someone elses…or interesting tidbits from the Victorian Era to share. Voice chat is not required if you do not use a microphone but please have your ears (or translators etc) on.

    (also needs a ‘read more’ tag, I don’t know how)

    The venue may float a little after this. May-July we will be at my LEA Grant space before returning this Salon home to New Babbage in August.

    Light RP is OK but please do remember (especially if you are a 100% IC player) that many of our guests will be visiting New Babbage for the first time so they will not be familiar with the City Lore. Please help me make them feel welcome and included and help them to gently enjoy the unique flavour of the City…mmmm, sooty.
