John looked at the dark, rolling, smoke blackened clouds above and checked his pocketwatch again. The wolf found it more useful to check his watch than the sky for the time of day, sincethe days in this city tended to be just as dark as the nights. He let out a sigh, he was losing track of time on his ever more frequent and lengthening walks around the city. If this kept up he would find himself wandering half way across the fells one day,...

“Oh, Kasa. I’m so sorry.” She put a hand on the rabbit-Moreau’s shoulder, carefully and sympathetically.

“I… we need to get him off the street,” said Kasa, looking dazed and holding her arm. “But… that wolf… that cougar… what’s going on here? And whose sister?”

Bookworm sighed. “I don’t know.” She looked down at the prone, lifeless form of Dr. Viper.

When they got inside, the Captain realized why the facility had...

The faint call shook Bookworm out of her work at her desk at home in Wheatstone. She looked up and saw Mac, one of her ghostly watchmen, standing by. “What is it?” she asked.

“There’s trouble somewhere by the hospital,” he replied urgently. “Daniel and I heard cries coming from that direction. It definitely seems serious!”

Bookworm hastily stood up and rushed downstairs. Pausing only to grab her revolver, she...

Late in the evening, Tepic was running at top speed along the tracks, heading for the Circus Tent.

Phaedra waited on the dock between two red lanterns and watched the rowboat approach, a prybar in her hand. Somewhere behind her, Lapis stood, a silent shadow at her back. She hadn’t told him what they were doing, just asked for his help. It was a test, and she hoped he passed it.
