The Long Past & Other Stories by Ginn Hale


1858 –Warring mages open up a vast inland sea that splits the United States in two. With the floodwaters come creatures from a long distant past. What seems like the End Times forges a new era of heroes and heroines who challenge tradition, law, and even death as they transform the old west into a new world.

* In the heart of dinosaur country a laconic trapper and a veteran mage risk treason to undertake a secret mission.

* A brilliant magician and her beautiful assistant light up stages with the latest automaton, but the secrets both of them are hiding test their trust in each other and pit them against one of the most powerful men in the world.

* At the wild edge of the Inland Sea, amidst crocodiles and triceratops, an impoverished young man and a Pinkerton Detective must join forces to outmaneuver a corrupt judge and his gunmen.

“Hale mashes up steampunk and fantasy to gleefully unsettle the historical status quo…” Publishers Weekly

“The Long Past & Other Stories is kinda like Pacific Rim but in a Fantasy setting, with dinosaurs and lots of empowered and happy queer stories.”—Kirkus

The Long Past is a perfect blend of love and action — it’s refreshing to see LGBT couples not only kick ass together, but get their happily-ever-afters too. While the last two stories are shorter than the first, they never feel rushed — the only critique readers may have is that there needs to be more!
