Dashby is an affluent 19th century gent, bored with the tired rituals of courtship and the monotony of a sheltered, privileged life. Bex is a 21st century party girl, disenchanted by the crude reality of the modern world and searching for a way to belong.
Divided by class, circumstance and an entire century, watch how their stories echo one another, frolic together, and literally intertwine on the page. The constraints of time itself collapse in the wake of true love, in this innovative work of short fiction.
Matthew Bright is a writer, editor and designer. His short fiction has appeared on Tor.com, Nightmare’s Queers Destroy Fiction, Lightspeed, Glittership, Harlot Magazine, Clockwork Iris, Queen Mob’s Teahouse and others, collected in Stories To Sing In The Dark (Lethe Press, 2019). He is the editor of several anthologies, including The Myriad Carnival, Threesome, Clockwork Cairo: Steampunk Tales of Egypt and the Lambda Literary Award Finalist Gents. With the release of Threesome, Publishers Weekly declared him ‘unambiguously…an editor to watch’, which is a quote he’s inclined to have printed on business cards and hand out to complete strangers on the street. By day, he pays the bills as a book cover designer in Manchester, England.
