The Pearl of Tharsis by Iain GrantThe Sedgewick Papers Book 2

When their Martian airship is shot down by anti-colonial terrorists, Professor Sedgewick and his companion, Cadwallander, are faced with dangers on all sides. Not only do they have to contend with the Indian freedom fighter, Mina Saxena, but are confronted with an ancient mystery far more insidious and deadly than the gun-toting Miss Saxena. For, beneath the desert sands of Mars, lies the court of the great god Aiwass in which his human disciples have gathered to usher in an age of horrors…

The second novelette chapbook in the Sedgewick Papers collection, The Pearl of Tharsis is a gleaming combination of planetary romance, cosmic horror and Victorian steampunk adventure.
