The Adventures of the Family Brass are detailed in this exciting adventure serial. A clan of Victorian science geniuses (Lord Brass an inventor and tactician, Lady Brass a Sherlock-level detective, son Cyril a martial artist savant and daughter Gwendolyn an acrobat and mistress of disguise) take on a mysterious Crime Minister for control of a London very different from the one in our history books.
We're in final edits of Season One of BRASS: The Audio Series, and wanted to share with you our first teaser, which is being sent out to our radio affiliates today! If you've got a minute (or a minute and five seconds, to be precise),
In the first of this original alternative history series, the Brass Family, a quartet of Victorian science geniuses, return to London after years abroad, little suspecting that a sinister conspiracy plots against them.
The Family are received by the Queen and Royal Consort and learn of the resurgence in London of the criminal underworld. Meanwhile Gwendolyn and Cyril meet the intriguing Lord Whitestone, and Crawford gets some news.
Even more than Victorian history, the world of BRASS is inspired by the fiction of the 19th and early 20th century. Literary creations like the Phantom of the Opera and Sherlock Holmes rub shoulders with Tesla and Oscar Wilde in our story,
Falling Rocks and Flying Knives. Trapped in The Spookhouse, the deathtrap-laden lair of the villainous Peck-in-the-Crown, the Brasses have their ingenuity tested to the shattering point, while a sinister conspiracy stays one step ahead of them.
Salons and Seances: The Brasses visit the salon of Victorian Renaissance man William Morris, have some harrowing conversations with a firebrand anarchist, and meet a guide to occult London, a young poet with a supernatural bent, William Butler Yeats.
The Second Coming: Lord and Lady Brass rush across London trying to save both a missing child and an abducted poet, while Yeats comes face-to-face with the mysterious Master and learns his occult plans! Bickering cultists,
The story of the Brass Family returns for its final (for now) chapter, Season Four, starting in two weeks. If you could use a gentle reminder of a plot line or two, give this a listen! (Though no guarantee that it won't leave you MORE confused....)
Yes, yes, we know that BRASS concerns a family of Victorian science heroes matching wits and weapons with a mysterious Crime Minister, but what's it ABOUT? Here's a quick Season One teaser to give you a taste!
