“Lesbian Necromancers in Space” is one hell of a way to promote a book, and Tamsyn Muir kept that promise. One of the difficult things about this series is that readers tend to finish the first two books and a) obviously want the unpublished third volume right away, and b) want a similar series. Is there really such a thing as this ridiculous, exaggerated, queer sci-fi meet fantasy series? There are no exact matches, but there are some books worth reading next if you loved Gideon the Ninth.

Of course, if you can’t let go of the Locked Tomb trilogy, you can create your own stories in this world too! Fanfiction is always rewarding fan activity, but you can make it interactive by creating an RPG in the Empire! It’s a perfect setting to give your campaign a creepy (and weird!) Tone. Besides, who can resist playing a “space fantasy crime adventure”?

The Locked Tomb trilogy is a one-of-a-kind series, but it seems to have found its audience, and its fans are thrilled! From the creepy but funny tone to the memorable characters and intriguing world, there is a lot to love in Gideon the Ninth. I did a bit of browsing on Etsy and I’m happy to say there are loads of fun Locked Tomb goodies to collect, from patches and stickers to a bespoke leather jacket! I hope you like skulls!
