Collection of linked fantasy stories.

''these interconnected stories are set in an opulent quasi-historical world of magick and high manners called the Republic of Califa. The Republic is a strangely familiar place - a baroque approximation of Gold Rush era-California with an overlay of Aztec ceremony - yet the characters who populate it are true originals: rockstar magicians, murderous gloves, bouncing boy terrors, blue tinted butlers, sentient squids, and a three-year-old Little Tiny Doom and her vengeful pink plush pig. By turn whimsical and horrific (sometime in the same line), Wilce's stories have been characterized as ''crewball comedies for goths'', but they could also be described as ''istorical fantasies''or ''anciful histories'' for there are nuggets of historical fact hidden in them there lies''.
