This is a fun, focused adventure story, with a great character voice and a compelling supporting cast of brave, independent women. I love this series! ( )

An interesting enough tale, Karen and Priya tangle with an odd mix of spiritualists, illusionists, a supernatural problem, and their own definitions of themselves and their relationship. Much more cosy than I was expecting from my second encounter with Karen Memory. While the entities outside the relationship drive the action, and not always in the way I expected, they didn't seem very involving. The relationship stuff was well stated, but what resolution there was didn't quite hit the real bullseye. ( )

Book description
Readers met the irrepressible Karen Memory in Elizabeth Bear’s 2015 novel Karen Memory, and fell in love with her steampunk Victorian Pacific Northwest city, and her down-to-earth story-telling voice.

Now Karen is back with Stone Mad, a new story about spiritualists, magicians, con-men, and an angry lost tommy-knocker—a magical creature who generally lives in the deep gold mines of Alaska, but has been kidnapped and brought to Rapid City.

Karen and Priya are out for a night on the town, celebrating the purchase of their own little ranch and Karen’s retirement from the Hotel Ma Cherie, when they meet the Arcadia Sisters, spiritualists who unexpectedly stir up the tommy-knocker in the basement. The ensuing show could bring down the house, if Karen didn’t rush in to rescue everyone she can.
