This volume contains a collection of essays that concentrate on the use of illustration in literature -- especially novels, poems, and children's books during the Victorian Age. Throughout the nineteenth century, but most intensely in the reign of Queen Victoria, England and Scotland produced an unprecedented range of extraordinary illustrated books. The images in these books became a central feature of Victorian culture. They were at once prestigious and popular -- a kind of entertainment -- but equally a place for pondering fundamental questions about the history, geography, language, time, commerce, design, and vision itself of the Victorians. The essays offer insights into such diverse topics as illustration in the books of Charles Dickens and William Morris, the use of words as images, the intersection of children's books and shopping, the use of maps in fiction, the decline of illustrated volumes after Queen Victoria's death, and the proposal that Victorian illustration was a major inspiration for modernist and postmodernist experiments with the form of the book.

She is non-replaceable, important, essential, but after serving her mandatory Breeding Duty, the impregnation and birthing that all women are obligated to undergo, her life loses purpose as she privately mourns the child she will never be permitted to know. When Policeman Leonard Barrens enlists her and her hacking skills in the unofficial investigation of his mentor's violent death, Dempsey finds herself increasingly captivated by both the case and Barrens himself. According to Information Security, the missing man has simply "Retired," nothing unusual. Together they follow the trail left by the mutilated remains. Their investigation takes them through lost dataspaces and deep into the uninhabited regions of the ship, where they discover that the answer may not be as simple as a serial killer after all. What they do with that answer will determine the fate of all humanity in David Ramirez's thrilling page turner.
