Summary "These interconnected stories are set in the Republic of Califa -- a baroque approximation of Gold Rush era-California with an overlay of Aztec ceremony. By turn whimsical and horrific (sometime in the same paragraph), Wilce's stories have been characterized as "screwball comedies for goths" but they could also be described as "historical fantasies" or "fanciful histories" for there are nuggets of historical fact hidden in them there lies"-- Provided by publisher.
