Kerberos Club: The Grandfather Paradox

Kerberos-Front-CoverThe Kerberos Club, that great pile of mouldering stone in the otherwise respectable Square of Saint James, is refuge for the Empire’s monsters and broken heroes. It is sanctuary and sometimes home to those who have gazed too long into the darkness and those who have been touched by the Strange. Occasionally members of the club join together to confront threats to the unsuspecting peoples of the Empire. Of course, most of those good Victorians consider the Club to be the worst sort of disreputable, but Kerberans all have their own reasons for doing things. There is every reason for the club’s motto: MALUM NECESSARIUM. In this exciting adventure, a trio from the Club tackles a most vexing dilemma. Top scientists have been kidnapped by mysterious forces and only the Kerberos Club can solve the mystery. Their investigation reveals a villain they would have never suspected!
