Dr. Potter's Medicine Show - Eric Scott Fischl

the beginning of this book has taken me to Oregon in 1878, and that plus all the offbeat characters has got me pretty hooked. I don't think my track record of Ratings for what Angry Robot offers indicates more than a general reaction of "enh, average entertainment"...but this one feels special. there are problems within the ranks of the Medicine Show, and I can't tell how much of a threat these schemes and dissensions are for, well, Oregon, 1878. but with some of my favorite character-types featured here--an Illusionist, AND an alchemist!--it's all good so far.
