About the Book



The first collection of previously published short stories set in the national-bestselling British madcap time-traveling series The Chronicles of St. Mary's.



Book Synopsis



The first collection of previously published short stories set in the national-bestselling British madcap time-traveling series The Chronicles of St. Mary's.

Behind the seemingly innocuous facade of St. Mary's Institute of Historical Research, a different kind of academic work is taking place. Just don't call it "time travel"--these historians "investigate major historical events in contemporary time." And they aren't your harmless eccentrics either; a more accurate description, as they ricochet around history, might be unintentional disaster-magnets.

The Chronicles of St. Mary's tells the chaotic adventures of Madeleine Maxwell and her compatriots--Director Bairstow, Leon "Chief" Farrell, Mr. Markham, and many more--as they travel through time, saving St. Mary's Institute (too often by the very seat of their pants) and thwarting time-traveling terrorists, all the while leaving plenty of time for tea.

The Long and Short of It collects all of Jodi Taylor's previously published St. Mary's short stories in one single volume. From Julius Caesar in Ancient Rome to a 1601 performance of Hamlet with Shakespeare himself playing the ghost, Max and the gang never seem to have trouble finding ways to insert themselves into prickly situations. And don't worry, there's plenty of Christmas cheer (and just a little of mischief) thrown in for good measure.

Stories Included:

When a Child is Born
Roman Holiday
Christmas Present
Ships and Stings and Wedding Rings
The Very First Damned Thing
The Great St. Mary's Day Out
My Name is Markham
A Perfect Storm



Review Quotes




Praise for Just One Damned Thing After Another

"A carnival ride through laughter and tears with a bit of time travel thrown in for spice . . . readers will be impatient for later installments."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Taylor does a great job of setting up an appealing cast of characters in this new series opener, most especially the intrepid Max. There is plenty of humor, lots of action, and even a touch of romance."
--Library Journal

"Taylor has written a madcap and very funny hodgepodge of a novel whose pacing and humor is reminiscent of a Simon Pegg-Edgar Wright film."
--Booklist

"Danger, romance, history, financial and academic politics, hidden agendas, dangerous assignments, characters you care about, and the feeling that more is going on than you're actually reading about. I can hardly wait for book two. Just One Damned Thing After Another is a true page-turner."
--SFRevu

"Just One Damned Thing After Another is a novel that wastes no time getting to the good stuff . . . if character-driven stories are your cup of tea, then you'll find plenty to like. Max is hilarious, and I love her spirited and crafty nature."
--The Bibliosanctum



About the Author



Jodi Taylor is, and always has been, a history nut. Her Chronicles of St. Mary's, a wild mix of history, adventure, comedy, romance, tragedy, and anything else the author could think of, began as a self-published book entitled Just One Damned Thing After Another. It's now a bestselling, wildly addictive series.
