Présentation de l'éditeur

From the Creators of the award-winning steampunk Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences series ( Phoenix Rising, the Janus Affair, Dawn's Early Light, and the Diamond Conspiracy) comes a collection of new adventures from around the world.

The Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences investigates the bizarre and unusual, and protects the citizens of the Empire from forces of darkness. Every agent knows that thrusting themselves into danger is part of the job, and may demand of them the ultimate sacrifice. They call on their own inner strength, wits, intellect, and innovations of science and technology.

But is it enough to face the unknown and the unexplainable?

This is Ministry Protocol: Thrilling Tales of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences, a collection of short stories featuring the derring-do of secret agents cut from a different cloth. These original short stories feature the imagination and voices of…

Leanna Rennee Hieber
The League of S.T.E.A.M.’s Glenn Freund
Delilah S. Dawson
Jared Axelrod
Tiffany Trent
Karina Cooper

…and many more!

Travel to the farthest corners of Queen Victoria’s mighty empire and back again to the shores of Old Blighty, unlocking the mysteries of legend, lore, and shadowy societies. Welcome to a world of steam, secrets, machinations and madness.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Your Next Ministry Assignment: Follow the Protocol! - See more at: http://www.ceejaywriter.com/#sthash.egsECINK.dpuf 27 septembre 2013
Par Lori Holuta - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This week I've been having a happy wallow in new stories of adventure and mystery, as I follow our intrepid agents from the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences while they conduct their investigations. But this time around, our favored agents Eliza Braun and Wellington Books step out of the spotlight (no doubt an aid in their own furtive pursuit of whatever needs pursuit at the moment) so that we may meet a wider variety of the Crown's elite agents. Their stories are told by a host of authors who've been invited to play in the wondrous world created by Philippa (Pip) Ballantine and Tee Morris.

I've been an avid fan of agents Braun and Books since the get-go, and will admit I cracked into Ministry Protocol with just a bit of hesitation. My hesitation turned to glee as I settled into the first adventure in this anthology series. By the end of the tale, I was hooked. The opening story was absolutely spot-on to the Peculiar universe, kept me guessing, and charmed me with it's style.

I've now read a half dozen of the adventures - and have traveled the world. While London has been the main setting for our adventures previous to Ministry Protocol, we now roam the world, with various agents who cover the globe, protecting (or attempting to) all of humanity from the forces of evil. Some stories I liked better than others, but that's all right. The variety is spicy, and I'm happy for that.

Tonight I shall play with the cat, have my supper and then kick the real world aside so that I might re-join the action. I wonder where the next tale will take me? What sort of agent will be saving the day? My curiosity and wonder are getting a full workout.

Every story takes place in a different location, with till-now unknown agents. And, since each story is written by a different author, each with their own unique style, you just never can know what will happen next - or who your new agency heroes will be. Pack your passport, grab a carpetbag and stuff your hat on your head. It's time we were off!

If you have not yet become acquainted with the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences, I will politely stifle a gasp of surprise and equally politely direct you to the website devoted to the cause. Enjoy your visit, learn about the Ministry, and of course, purchase the books. We can all use more adventure in our lives.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Peculiarly addictive 26 octobre 2013
Par Neal Makely - Publié sur Amazon.com

Although the stories contained in this collection tend toward the fantastic or supernatural a bit more than the first two Ministry novels, I find the series itself fascinating. Broadening the pool with new voices and new characters adds spice to the MPO universe, never a bad thing in my view.

My only complaint: I find the editing a bit... annoying. When I am reading and I hit a grammatical mistake it breaks me out of the story, even if ever-so-briefly. In some areas it's obviously a revision error. A sentence was rephrased and in the process a word was left in that should have been deleted, perhaps a preposition or an extra "the" or something similar. I'm merrily reading along and hit such an error and stop to re-read the section. Did I skip sentences? Did I misunderstand? Oh, it was just another bad edit. Please, please, please - better editing before release! [Full disclosure: I own both the previous books on Kindle and the first book in paperback as well. As I recall, those books suffered some of the same editing flaws.]

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A tour de force from the Ministry! 18 décembre 2013
Par Sam Chupp - Publié sur Amazon.com

If you have never read any of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences novels, you are in for a big treat. I would love for you to go ahead and go back and read those before you take on "Ministry Protocol." OK! Having done that, it is also important for you to know that the Ministry Protocol anthology does not contain any of the "Tales from the Archives" collections that are available separately on Amazon - so you can safely obtain those as well.

Now! Once you're inside "Ministry Protocol" here's some lovely things you'll be seeing:

"The New Recruit" by Leanna Renee Hieber is a poignant tale the puts the MPO universe clearly on the side of the supernatural for the first time ever - and I don't want to spoil it so that's all I'll say about it.

"A Feast of Famine" by Karina Cooper features amazing characters Miss Snow and Caitriona Kensington Kennedy, two operatives I'd love to see have their own novel all by themselves. Is it just me or is there a little lesbian subtext? I love it.

"Chinoiserie" by Tiffany Trent is a chilling tale, also firmly on the side of the supernatural, but very much in the same realm as travelled by Kipling. Lots of rich storytelling here.

"New London Calling" by Peter Woodworth is the first American adventure I've read in the MPO universe, and there are some lovely bits of humor in amongst the action / adventure in this one.

"Where the River Shines" by Dan Rabarts takes place in New Zealand and has a lovely supernatural aspect with a very intriguing bit of business with a transforming tractor that could not have taken place in a non-Steampunk story. I really enjoyed the rollicking adventure in this one and the supernatural bits were also well written and mythic.

"The Incident of the Clockwork Mikoshi" by Lauren Harris introduces us to a gruff Englishman in Japan and a female Japanese agent. I liked the characters and dialogue in this story and enjoyed the mythic details.

"The Trouble with Phoenixes" by Jared Axelrod was wonderful fun and a lovely opportunity for a few moments with Agent Braun as well as to get a look at the mysterious clankerton character of Hephaestus Axelrod

"The Mystery of the Thrice Dead Man" by J.R. Blackwell shows new skills from Agent Books, and gives us more information about the compelling character of Josephina Raven Blackwell: she's not just a brilliant clankerton.

"The Clockwork Samurai" by Jack Mangan has an operatic Kurosawa style that rivets the reader to the page.

I am a "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all" kind of reviewer and some astute readers may notice I did not review all the stories here. Doesn't mean they aren't good - just didn't strike my fancy.

All in all this is a wonderful anthology and most worthy of your fine coin!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A little too much magic for my taste... 11 février 2014
Par Mike Billington - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I loved "The Janus Affair" and "Phoenix Rising," the first two novels about the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences, so I was especially pleased when I learned that "Ministry Protocol" was available for purchase. As a writer of Steampunk novels myself, I looked forward to the exploits of this very secretive arm of the British government as it pursued villains around the globe. Unlike the previous two books, however, there was a little too much reliance on supernatural events and magic in "Ministry Protocol" for my taste. This is not to say that this is a bad book... I enjoyed the stories but they did not captivate me as those first two books did primarily, I think, because the characters were not as richly drawn and their relationships seemed somewhat shallow. I recognize that when writing short stories the author does not have the space to fully realize characters in the same way that a novelist does, however, I wanted to better understand these men and women who set off into parts unknown to keep the Empire safe from evil-doers and I think I might have if the villains they pursued were not supernatural but humans bent on world domination.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 New to steampunk and these authors 9 janvier 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

First, let me be clear: I'm not a fan of Steampunk. Not to say I don't like it; I've just never really read. Second, I picked this up through Kickstarter. It was an additional reward for an RPG that I found interesting. Since I'd never read any steampunk, the names of the authors/editors didn't mean much to me, and, quite frankly, I was expecting to be mildly entertained and that was all.

I was quite incorrect.

The first story was a shock. This was no typical RPG short story full of action and adventure. This was an interestingly "peculiar" story about, well, about something else entirely. I finished the rest, and enjoyed each on its own merits. Set in different environs under English rule, each story explored a different "flavor" and, taken together, painted a picture of a sophisticated and driven global operation.

All-in-all, I enjoyed the stories immensely, and look forward to reading more of the series. If for no other reason than to learn what was in the box....
