The Madness of St Mary's
Buyer beware if you think this is a whole new book.
This is a collection of short stories and all but one has been released before.
As much as I love the novels I think that the short story format is wonderful for this series. It allows the inherent silliness that you have...

This book wraps up all the short stories in the series which fit around the novels, talks about the motivations for writing them and also adds in another short story. It's important to know where each story fits in relation to the novels.
If you are a St Mary's fan, this will be your thing. I lov...
