“Short story advent utilising tordotcom free fiction 3/25. Can never go wrong with Garth Nix. Especially when it features gas lamp supernatural mystery.”
“3.25⭐️ This was fun, but nothing extraordinary. I liked the fact that it was short and sweet. It had to do with Sherlock’s cousin - Sir Magnus - and the legend of Excalibur! I think I could have gotten more interested in this story if it’d been longer.”
“Kind of just dropped upon this story, but loved it. Worth a read.”
