Theodora Goss is an author of fiction. She is best known for her fantasy novels. Goss has been a finalist for many awards and has made it onto the Tiptree Award Honor List. She won the Rhysling Award and the World Fantasy award respectively for her work. She was born in Hungary.

Goss moved around a lot with her family, and they lived in many different countries in Europe. Her family eventually moved to the United States. She grew up with the classics and many novels of English literature. Still, her writing has been largely influenced by European stories where the boundaries between what is real and what is fantastical or fantasy-based are often blurred.

She has written full length novels as well as short stories. Her 2006 short story collection is called In the Forest of Forgetting. Her next collection came out a year later and is called Interfictions. Her poetry anthology with the inclusion of critical essays and her own poems came out in 2008 and is called Voices From Fairyland. She also released an accordion-format novella that was two-sided in 2012 titled The Thorn and the Blossom.

Theodora Goss is the creator and author of the Mary Jekyll series. This engaging fiction series kicked off in 2017. It is titled The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter. A sequel followed in 2018. Both books follow the adventures of the main character, Mary.

The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter is the first book in the Mary Jekyll series. When Mary is left totally alone after the death of her parents, she is left without any money to her name. But even though they are dead, she is curious of the past of her parents. In particular, she is anxious to find out the secrets of her father’s past, which have remained largely a mystery.

Mary wants to find out all about her father and so she turns to the only clues that she have. One tells her that her father’s once friend, Edward Hyde, may be close by. The man is well known for being a killer, and the reward given out by the authorities for the information that leads to his capture would be large enough to pretty much solve all of the financial problems that are currently hounding her.

Mary Jekyll has lost everything. In the end, her search will take her to the most unlikely of people: Diana, Hyde’s daughter. She’s been abandoned and is practically feral and has been taken care of all of this time by the nuns who look after her. Mary gets some help from some famous friends to try and crack this case and finally track down Hyde.

Dr. Watson and Sherlock Holmes have agreed to assist her, and so Mary starts her search for Hyde. The two detectives are determined to help Mary in her search, and so she has a great deal of allies on her side. Mary starts making friends with more women who have been created through experiments and is doing her best to find Hyde in the hopes of finally getting some answers.

Here search may just lead her to the discovery of a secret group that goes beyond anything she could ever imagine. These power crazed scientists are willing to put morals to the side in order to do anything to preserve their ability to experiment and take science to the very limit.

When the horrors from their collective pasts return, it is time for the monsters to finally get their victory over the ones that made them monsters in the first place. Can Mary ever find Hyde, or is she destined to come up empty handed? She desperately needs the money and the answers. What happens? You’ve got to pick up this book to find out.

European Travel for the Monstrous Gentlewoman is the second book in the Mary Jekyll series. The book came out in 2018. When it comes to the story of Mary Jekyll, it’s not quite over yet. Mary has made new friends in those that others would see as monsters; the women experiments of the crazy scientists that were mad with power.

Now they are off together to travel through Europe and see what they see. Their adventures will take them all over the continent as they soon stumble upon a common mission: to save another monster girl from the scientists and take on the Alchemical Society to foil their evil plans for good.

Ever since Mary has solved the murder case she was working on with the help of Holmes and Watson, she’s invited her new friends to live in her London home. Catherine Moreau, Beatrice Rappaccini, Justine Frankenstein, and Diana Hyde (Mary’s sister) have all moved in and are now living together happily as part of the Athena Club.

Even though they occasionally disagree, the five young women that belong to this club get along quite well. Even though they have different opinions and very different personalities, they all manage to find that common ground at the end of the day and they all have a friend in Mrs. Poole.

Mary is shocked when she finds out that Lucinda Van Helsing has been abducted. The Athena Club is on the case, and they will do whatever it takes to rescue this young woman. She has been subjected to horrible experiments and they must get her back before it is too late. The worst part about all of it is that they have no idea where she is, and time is running out.

At the mercy of the evil Professor Van Helsing or someone else, Lucinda is surely in trouble. But can the Athena Club make it to her in time? If they don’t hurry up, they’re certain that they’ll lose their chance to help her.

It’s a race against time as the five women do their best to track her down, going everywhere from Paris to Budapest and making friends and facing enemies along the way. Can they take down the Alchemical Society, or will they find out that this secret group has some secret tricks up their sleeve as well? Read this fun mystery book to find out!
