We picked The Society of Righteous and Harmonious Fists, by Ahimsa Kerp because we have a thing for long titles. That’s it, really.
Okay, that’s not true. We love this story because it’s just the right dose of steampunk wonderment mixed with a vivid and believable description of a real time in human history. It’s also a coming of age tale that beautifully illustrates the moment when we learn that the world is not as simple, or as just, as we previously believed it to be.
