The debut novel by award-winning American playwright Gordon Dahlquist is the genre-bending The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters, which marries historical fantasy with adventure mystery, plus a dash of steampunk-y science fiction. Set in a Victorian-esque London, the novel opens with Miss Celeste Temple receiving notification that her fiancée Roger Bascombe hankers to kill their engagement before the pair marries. Curious, Miss Temple follows her ex-lover from work to an Eyes Wide Shut-like ceremony, opening a plot-twisting world of eroticism and betrayal.
