About the Author
Clay Griffith and Susan Griffith met at a bookstore thanks to The Uncanny X-Men #201. They had to get married because of a love of adventure stories with heroes who save the day and fall in love. Soon they were writing stories together, including The Shadow Revolution, The Undying Legion, The Conquering Dark, and the Vampire Empire series. After years of comics, short stories, and novels, they remain happily married. When not writing or talking about writing, the couple watch classic movies, play Warcraft, and struggle to entertain their cat. They still have that copy of The Uncanny X-Men #201.

And the gadgets -- well, the Griffiths are virtuosos with steampunk gadgets and machines. You won't find anything better, anywhere else. They seem to have encyclopedic knowledge about machinery, weaponry, poisons, and so forth.
The characters also pop off the pages as fully formed, fully realized people, who you'd recognize anywhere.
Please figure out a way to write more about these people and this universe.
But if you enjoy Kate and Simon's romantic and working-partner chemistry, you'll find this a very satisfactory ending to the Crown & Key mini-series. I did; these stories are keepers for my collection.
