The Shattered Mirror

Nick Poole

A surreal cast including golems, vampires, Lost Boys, the Snow Queen, and Jack the Ripper romp across Fantastic London in 1888.


Phoebe is a guttersnipe. Right now, a lonely guttersnipe, having been cast out of the Chapel gang for rejecting Jimmy Coster's advances. Her mum is no help...she's a drunk and a whore.

The nearest Phoebe has to a father is the mysterious Mr Bliss. Problem is, that isn't much comfort. She doesn't know it, but Mr Ebenezer Bliss isn't a man at all. His nature is to grant wishes...but his wishes come with a price and a lesson.

Mr Bliss promises Phoebe her Heart's Desire...her long lost, real life father.

Then a stranger arrives, an ugly, angry stranger calling himself Mr Nobody. He is seeking a name and a past. Could he be Phoebe's father?

Soon the stranger is claiming the inheritance of Thomas Grimes. But at the same time Saucy Jacky starts his bloody reign in Whitechapel and Phoebe is fleeing from the man who might or might not be her father.

Soon the handsome Lord Chandler promises her silks and cooked breakfasts and Theodora Grimes is teaching the guttersnipe to be a lady.

But when the guttersnipe loses her heart it is the monstrous Mr Nobody whom she seeks out.

The Desert Demon called Al-Shaitan captures Princess Sima.


The Demon Al-Shaitan falls upon the Caravan of Sima, Princess of Luna, and seizes her. Can Lars, Captain of her Bodyguard, rescue her?

"I swear by the Whores of Babylon that this is one of the most original books I've read on Authonomy. The characters and writing are so colourful that if Sir Richard Burton had come across it, he would have wanted to translate it into Arabic. " Carrots.

Impressive prologue after a couple of dodgy notes early on - "leapt out of the bunk"..."raced to the wheelhouse" ...which had me immediately doubting the author. But then we get into the tense standoff with the customs including the unsubtle reminder of previous hospitality and the countdown and you... view book

I can't resist reviewing the review and then reviewing the reviews of the review. First though, what have the Authonomites said over the months/years?
