Note! Nell Gwynne's Scarlet Spy is an expanded edition of The Women of Nell Gwynne’s. This edition contains a bonus novelette, "The Bohemain Astrobleme".

Dust jacket and interior illustrations by J. K. Potter.

The original Kage Baker novella The Women of Nell Gwynne’s now sells for over $80 on the collector’s market. We’ve decided to make it available to readers in a trade paperback edition, expanded to include the bonus Nell Gwynne novelette, “The Bohemain Astrobleme”.

Lady Beatrice was the proper British daughter of a proper British soldier, until tragedy struck and sent her home to walk the streets of early-Victorian London. But Lady Beatrice is no ordinary whore, and is soon recruited to join an underground establishment known as Nell Gwynne’s. Nell Gwynne’s is far more than simply the finest and most exclusive brothel in Whitehall; it is in fact the sister organization to the Gentlemen’s Speculative Society, that 19th-century predecessor to a certain Company... and when a member of the Society goes missing on a peculiar assignment, it’s up to Lady Beatrice and her sister harlots to investigate.
