The Mysterious Study of Doctor Sex Review

Each of the Empire's houses keeps secrets, even from themselves. For the bookish academics of the Sixth, every secret is a mystery, and every mystery is a puzzle to be solved or a paper to be published. Deep in the bowels of their house, one such secret is about to reveal itself. The study of the famed academic Donald Sex, sealed since the moment of his death, is about to open, and archivists are ready to dissect what he left behind. They are not ready for the macabre surprise that awaits them.

Enter Palamedes Sextus and Camilla Hect, age thirteen.

    I think I should just give up on short stories... I thought maybe this one I would enjoy as it's part of a series I am totally loving, but I just didn't care? Go read Gideon the Ninth first, and if yo...
