Alexis Kennedy is founder of Failbetter Games, narrative genius behind Fallen London and Sunless Sea, guest writer on Dragon Age, etc etc. He's also the writer of "Victory Year", a short story of alternate history Queen Victoria(s), first (and only) published in Stories of the Smoke.
Smoke is now pretty much impossible to find, but, if Kennedy's new kickstarter - for the tantilising Cultist Simulator - passes its stretch reward, he'll be sharing the story around.
The project is already 200% funded and the reward is close. Plus, the game looks terrific. So for a peek at a long lost story, and a chance to play cultist, check it out.
