A dive into the dark side of the Paris of Wonders universe
Paris, early 20th century. The gentlemen have proud moustaches and bowler hats, the ladies wear corsets, petticoats and button boots. Gleaming jalopies bustle among the horse-drawn carriages that proceed past the elegant buildings of the Grands Boulevards. But the Eiffel Tower is made of white wood, mermaids have taken over the Seine, and leprechauns and winged cats discuss philosophy.
This collection contains six short stories set in the world of Paris of Wonders. Pierre Pevel is the author of one of them. The other five are the work of new or established writers who like him have imagined the dark side of the story. For the Paris of Wonders is also a place of scoundrels and rascals, of thieves and criminals.
