Ok, thanks. Picked up Pinion and, while I like it, I need more context so I'll go back and start with Mainspring.

Oh! Read your short in Rise of Cthulhu. I thought it was one of the better stories in the anthology, hands down.

Thank you, on both counts.

FWIW, Mainspring is pretty much a standalone. Pinion is very much part 2 of Escapement, though they both follow on Mainspring.
