New Steampunk Anthology

I’m incredibly thrilled and delighted to announce a new Steampunk anthology I am currently editing and writing for, featuring sixteen brand new stories from some of the most exciting and critically acclaimed writers working in the genres of SF, Fantasy & Steampunk today, scheduled to be published on 1st June 2012 by UK publishers Snowbooks.

The anthology will feature writers such as Brian Herbert, co-writer of the Dune sequels and Fantasy & Horror legend Tanith Lee, contributing Steampunk stories that will reimagine some of our most beloved classic works of fiction; such as Sherlock Holmes, Carnacki, H. Rider Haggard, Jekyll & Hyde and White Fang.

What would these timeless, classic stories be like if they had been written in an alternate reality to ours; a reality where Ebenezer Scrooge is taken to an alternate Steampunk Christmas that never happened by the Ghost of Christmas Sideways, or Robin Hood fights in the Holy Land against the forces of darkness in the fourth steam-powered Crusades?

The full line-up is;


Resurrection Engines:
16 Extraordinary Tales of Scientifc Romance


01 - Philip Palmer
02 - Brian Herbert & Bruce Taylor
03 - Adam Roberts
04 - Tanith Lee & John Kaiine
05 - Lavie Tidhar
06 - Juliet E. McKenna
07 - George Mann
08 - Kim Laikin-Smith
09 - Roland Moore

A Romance In Electronic Parts

It's just come to my attention that the Obverse Books' anthology, Faction Paradox: A Romance In Twelve Parts, is now available as an eBook.

I know that many people have asked me over the past few months if the book will be available in the electronic format - well, now it is, and you can download it immediately from their website for a mere six hundred and ninety-nine copper coins of the realm.

That's £6.99 to you and me. Bargain!

I've also been meaning to post the links to some of the wonderful reviews that the collection has been garnering, from various writers, reviewers and book aficionados; including the hugely talented author Simon A. Forward.

Here are a few links. I shall try and add more as they come to my attention:
