You get to meet some of the central characters of the interdimensional pub featured in "the Passing Place", whilst learning about the steampunk world of the central character... Soon to be the hero of his own novel I believe.
It was published inbetween Passing Place: Location Relative and A Spider In The Eye: A Hannibal Smyth Adventure, but it works as an introduction to either or both 'franchises', as a little sequel/ prequel, or as a stand-alone. the fact that the author can make it work in all three of those roles is pretty impressive, and means that whether your a fan of either, neither or both of the other books, it's a good read.
There's three short stories at the end that are independent of both of the franchises, and the the first two in particular are excellent reads too.
Its a nice short story, and I love the "Passing Place" setting, but clearly this novella is the set-up to the next, full, the author's next book. I thought it was a little too short. Alas. So I shall be waiting for Mark's next novel in which I hope to meet Hannibal Smyth, and hear his stories in more detail.
More importantly, the supplement to Passing Place is brilliant, and I for one can't wait to read more about Hannibal!

Initially, told from Richard, the piano player's viewpoint, we meet Hannibal Smyth, who is in between adventures yet tells a tale of his own. This is a fun short story, well-written and concise. Not having ventured into this world before, I think I would have gotten more out of it if I had read the other books in the series first.
But overall, a nice distracting to have sitting by the fireplace having a cup of tea.
