Sean McMullen. Electrica. (Fantasy & Science Fiction, Mar/Apr 2012)

Napleonic alternate history with a touch of the cthulhian terrors. A young officer, a code breaker, is despatched to a rural retreat in the English countryside, where some strange experiments are taking place which could revolutionise combat communication – taking it far beyond the use of semaphore signalling.

There’s evidently a novel in this setting in the pipeline.
