I have been really impressed with my experience from Angry Robot Books. They certainly pick authors that fit my reading palate. Last year I was swept away with Rod Duncan's Gas-Lit Empire. You can catch my review here for The Bullet Catcher's Daughter to get introduced to this wonderful steampunk world. Coming May 7th is the second novel.
In the divided land of England, Elizabeth Barnabus has been living a double life – as both herself and as her brother, the private detective. Witnessing the brutal hanging of someone very close to her, Elizabeth resolves to throw the Bullet Catcher’s Handbook into the fire, and forget her past. If only it were that easy!
There is a new charitable organisation in town, run by some highly respectable women. But something doesn’t feel right to Elizabeth. Perhaps it is time for her fictional brother to come out of retirement for one last case? Her unstoppable curiosity leads her to a dark world of body-snatching, unseemly experimentation, politics and scandal. Never was it harder for a woman in a man’s world…
One of my favorite places on the web is Rod Duncan's interactive site for the Gas-Lit Empire. It has news and games! Visit Angry Robot Book's website for more information on Unseemly Science and other amazing authors.
