Tapping the Admiral: A 20,001 Teaser

Our latest teaser from the upcoming anthologie 20,001: A Steampunk Odyssey brings a brilliantly realized alternate history take on the dangers awaiting polar explorers in the post-Napoleonic world:

Tapping the Admiral, by Anne Millar

Captain George Lucius Bixby is having a spot of bother: his exploratory vessel has been assigned to the trackless arctic wastes, his scientific collaborator is insisting on calling him Lucy, and - oh yes - he may have just discovered how the world is going to end... Ranging from black comedy to outright chills, liberally sprinkled with allusions to a history not quite our own, Anne Millar’s "Tapping the Admiral" offers steamships, an intrepid illustratrix and the fate of the post-Napoleonic world under the chill stars of polar night.
