Agatha Heterodyne and the Hammerless Bell

Agatha Heterodyne and the Hammerless Bell by Phil & Kaja Foglio

Volume 11 is out!  Featuring their Hugo acceptance speech!  And, as primomised A Gaslamp Fantasy with Adventure, Romance & Mad Science!

Featuring the emperor of cats, a romantic moment where a woman tells a man that she'll hate him forever (which makes him happy, but a minute later, he realizes a small hole in his plot), love triangles, the Baron telling a story teller a fairy tale he never heard before, a protective mechanical cat, a mad castle, and much more!

Hard to review.  If you already know Girl Genius, you probably don't need my review, and if you don't -- with volume 11 the spoiler problem is acute.

Nevertheless the volume had to overflow somewhere, and I decided on a post.  If you read the first 10, you will want to read this one, too.
