About Alexis Hall

Alexis Hall was born in the early 1980s and still thinks the 21st century is the future. To this day, he feels cheated that he lived through a fin de siècle but inexplicably failed to drink a single glass of absinthe, dance with a single courtesan, or stay in a single garret.

He did the Oxbridge thing sometime in the 2000s and failed to learn anything of substance. He has had many jobs, including ice cream maker, fortune teller, lab technician, and professional gambler. He was fired from most of them.

He can neither cook nor sing, but he can handle a 17th century smallsword, punts from the proper end, and knows how to hotwire a car.

He lives in southeast England, with no cats and no children, and fully intends to keep it that way.

An instructive story in which vice receives its just reward.

Inspired by true and scandalous tales of the Gaslight aristocracy, we present the most moral and improving tale of Lady Rosamond Wolfram.

Weep, reader, for the plight of our heroine as she descends into piteous ruin in the clutches of the notorious Phlogiston Baron, Anstruther Jones. Witness the horrors of feminine rebellion when this headstrong young lady defies her father, breaks an advantageous engagement, and slips into depravity with a social inferior. Before the last page is turned, you will have seen our heroine molested by carnival folk, snubbed at a dance, and drawn into a sinful ménage a trois by an unrepentant sodomite, the wicked and licentious Lord Mercury.

Reader, take heed. No aspect of our unfortunate heroine’s life, adventures, or conduct is at all admirable, desirable, exciting, thrilling, glamorous, or filled with heady passion and gay romance.

I recently finished reading Prosperity and loved it. Bought Liberty and am looking forward to reading it. Thanks for the post and contest!

I have never not been delighted to see that cover. They are characters who’ve lodged into my heart from their first appearance in Prosperity. Yes, even when they were being not so nice to Dil, whom I ADORE. Cue a little happy sigh.

Such a great cover and blurb…you can tell this is special!



I love Alexis Hall’s writing, have read & adored everything he’s published. In this series Prosperity, Phlogiston, Shackles & Squamous have been just fantastic reads. Now I’m on to Cloudy & Liberty. I do object to this tour asking for email addresses in the body of the comment. I don’t understand this requirement, as it has never been a requirement of any previous blog tour in which I’ve participated. And there is just no way on earth I’m ever making that info public, that’s just plain crazy. If that means I can’t win, so be it. I will, however, happily… Read more »
