The Goblin Emperor–A Rave Review

It’s July–which for many members of the science fiction community means it’s Hugo Awards Politics Time. But it’s worth putting up with the politics because of the trade-off: an inbox full of the best science fiction and fantasy from the previous year. And so I finally got to read The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison. […]

Interview with Ryan Dunlap

Ryan Dunlap is a filmmaker and novelist living in Nashville, TN. His first novel was a steampunk adventure called The Wind Merchant–-the product of a successful Kickstarter campaign intended to fund the sound production of his still-unreleased feature film Greyscale.

“Letters Between Gentlemen” – Book Review

Sometimes, Steampunk books are serious challenges to the ideals of the Victorian age and tread on the dark side, and other times they are silly fun. Letters Between Gentleman, by award-winning “chap hop” artist Professor Elemental and accomplished author Nimue Brown, is most definitely the latter. As implied by the title, this book is presented as […]

Cassandra Clare’s “Clockwork Princess” – Book Review

Even though all three of Casandra Clare’s Infernal Devices books came out between 2009-2013, I didn’t get around to reading the third one until recently.

Cassandra Clare’s “Clockwork Angel” Review

If you are familiar with the author Cassandra Clare, it probably isn’t because of Clockwork Angel or the rest of the Infernal Devices trilogy. She is best known in literary circles as the author of the hit YA series, Mortal Instruments. The first book, City of Bones, was made into a movie called Mortal Instruments: […]

The Iron Jackal – Book Review

This tale is all about the good ship Ketty Jay and its captain, Frey, but the story is told through the eyes of the entire crew as they take turns enriching the story with their insights and foibles. It all starts when this rag-tag band is enlisted by Frey’s “its complicated,” Trinica the pirate queen, to […]

The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack – Book Review

The year is 1861, but the world is filled with things that should not yet have come to pass. Flying armchairs (called rotochairs) help the populace get around and the postal system is composed of foul-mouthed parakeets that have been genetically designed to deliver messages. Queen Victoria was a but a brief blip on the […]
