    That was delightful And so short haha I honestly thought it was going to be some of her published research, as referenced in the story Instead it was a clever collection of correspondence in which Mrs Camherst remains charmingly unapologetic in her quest for dragon knowledge I m not sure it was worth.99 for 10 pages I didn t even glance at the page count before buying , but I m still glad I read it.Update apparently it s free to read online That was delightful And so short haha I honestly thought it was going to be some of her published research, as referenced in the story Instead it was a clever collection of correspondence in which Mrs Camherst remains charmingly unapologetic in her quest for dragon knowledge I m not sure it was worth.99 for 10 pages I didn t even glance at the page count before buying , but I m still glad I read it.Update apparently it s free to read online

    Final review, first posted at www.FantasyLiterature.com This very short story with the lengthy title is part of the MEMOIRS OF LADY TRENT fantasy series, which is set in a Victorian era like world, with dragons Isabella Camherst, Lady Trent, travels the world to study dragons in their native habitats, despite resistance from some men who look down on headstrong women who refuse to stay in the kitchen.In this humorous story, related through a series of letters to the editor of the Falchester Wee Final review, first posted at www.FantasyLiterature.com This very short story with the lengthy title is part of the MEMOIRS OF LADY TRENT fantasy series, which is set in a Victorian era like world, with dragons Isabella Camherst, Lady Trent, travels the world to study dragons in their native habitats, despite resistance from some men who look down on headstrong women who refuse to stay in the kitchen.In this humorous story, related through a series of letters to the editor of the Falchester Weekly Review, Lady Trent tangles with Mr Benjamin Talbot, a scholar who claims to have found a cockatrice, a beast with a dragon s body and a rooster like head Lady Trent sends in a letter encouraging Mr Talbot to publicizeinformation regarding his cockatrice, including the place where it was discovered Mr Talbot responds with his own letter, declining to make public the place of origin, and suggesting that her feminine heart should understand the concern with the effect of such a disclosure The correspondence degenerates from there, as they semi politely exchange insults and question each other s credentials and intelligence through their letters.It s always amusing when members of polite society exchange insults in well bred language, and this story also gives the reader a brief glimpse of the challenges facing Lady Trent in her efforts to become a legitimate scientist While I m not certain that From the Editorial Page of the Falchester Weekly Review is the best place to begin one s acquaintance with Lady Trent, it does have the advantage of being both short and free online, and it has instilled in me the desire to search out a copy of A Natural History of Dragons, the first novel in the MEMOIRS OF LADY TRENT series.Free online at Tor.com

    This is a very short story set in the same world as the Memoirs of Lady Trent series It s actually a set of fictional letters started when our main character, Isabella, challenges the author of a scientifically questionable notice in the Falchester Weekly Review She and the author both send their letters to each other via the Falchester Weekly Review, so they re published publicly I guess this is sort of what a Victorian era flame war might look like The letters were written shortly after This is a very short story set in the same world as the Memoirs of Lady Trent series It s actually a set of fictional letters started when our main character, Isabella, challenges the author of a scientifically questionable notice in the Falchester Weekly Review She and the author both send their letters to each other via the Falchester Weekly Review, so they re published publicly I guess this is sort of what a Victorian era flame war might look like The letters were written shortly after Isabella s return from her expedition in the third book of the series Although too short to have any substantial meat, it did make a nice little supplement to the series and the ending made me laugh because it fit Isabella s character so well.This is currently available for free on Tor s website here

    So A Natural History of Dragons has been on my radar for a while now, but this short story is what actually moved it up my to read list by leaps and bounds.Formatted as a series of letters to the editor, the literary sniping is a fun way to fill in the gaps of a story for yourself.Definitely read it if you re looking forEdwardian Victorian fantasy like Sorcerer to the Crown, Shades of Milk and Honey, or Jonathan Strange Mr Norrell Just possibly sillier And with extra dragons.You can re So A Natural History of Dragons has been on my radar for a while now, but this short story is what actually moved it up my to read list by leaps and bounds.Formatted as a series of letters to the editor, the literary sniping is a fun way to fill in the gaps of a story for yourself.Definitely read it if you re looking forEdwardian Victorian fantasy like Sorcerer to the Crown, Shades of Milk and Honey, or Jonathan Strange Mr Norrell Just possibly sillier And with extra dragons.You can read it online here

    Oooh, I knew exactly which points of the pompous Mr Talbot s letters would piss off Isabella they pissed me off as well , and to no one s surprise, she ripped him a new asshole both in letter form and in the incredibly satisfying conclusion.

    Short and sweetwon t let me read anything else till I submit this review I have posted a proper review on good reads, but suffice it to say this is excellent.

    This feels like a bit of an extra for fans of the Memoirs of Lady Trent series or maybe, a bit of a teaser to drag new fans in Clever and fun, these letters to the Editor reveal the controversy that arises when the exhibition of a specimen of the legendary cockatrice is challenged by the well known naturalist and dragon expert, Lady Trent.

    I m dying I m cackling I m screaming All of the lols A high brow back and forth between Isabella and a Mr Talbot who actually added credentials after his name after his second reply that hilariously highlights what a genteel academic argument in the scientific community would look like if taken to a public forum It kills me that their fight in a newspaper is today s equivalent of an argument on Twitter or Instagram I m so tickled Dear Sirs It was with some dismay that I opened the 29 F I m dying I m cackling I m screaming All of the lols A high brow back and forth between Isabella and a Mr Talbot who actually added credentials after his name after his second reply that hilariously highlights what a genteel academic argument in the scientific community would look like if taken to a public forum It kills me that their fight in a newspaper is today s equivalent of an argument on Twitter or Instagram I m so tickled Dear Sirs It was with some dismay that I opened the 29 Floris issue of your magazine to find another letter from Mrs Camherst gracing its pages Although her enthusiasm is remarkable, I begin to feel that she is using your publication as a forum for some kind of campaign against me, which might better have been carried out in private correspondence this is when my Grinch smile sprung up because I knew it was just going to get good He felt aggressed The last letter was perfect, I actually laughed out loud I heart Isabella Camherst, and would definitely donate

    Though this was only a short story in The Memoirs of Lady Trent series it was just as brilliant as the novels The story is told in letters between Lady Trent and Mr Talbot that are published in a public magazine, the back and forth between the two is brilliant, humorous and is essentially the Victorian equivalent of argumentative facebook comments.
