The Kickstarter for Sherlock Holmes in the Realms of Steampunk is ending in just a couple of days. I’m delighted to share that it’s been hugely successful, passing the second stretch goal over the weekend, but there’s still time to join us and pre-order your copy, as well as some of the other fantastic rewards that Belanger Books are offering to our backers.
My story, ‘The Silver Swan’, will be opening the first part of the two-volume anthology. If the idea of classic!Holmes pitting his wits against mechanised swans in steampunk London intrigues you, then please check out my interview with Derrick Belanger, learn about the other fantastic stories and authors, and join the Kickstarter before it closes at this link.
The Kickstarter is now available to reserve your copy of the new anthology from Belanger Books, Sherlock Holmes: Adventures in the Realms of Steampunk! Divided into two volumes – Tales of a Retro Future and Mechanical Men & Otherworldly Endeavours – the Kickstarter is open until March 21, 2019, and has already hit its funding target within hours of opening.
My story, ‘The Silver Swan’, will be opening the first volume.
Tales of a Retro Future – Volume one of the anthology features stories with a focus on steampunk inventions. See airships cloud the skies, robotic swans attack, and apparatuses appear to raise the dead.
Mechanical Men and Otherworldly Endeavours – Volume two of the anthology features stories with a focus on robotic creatures and otherworldly adventures. See Holmes team up with intelligent animals from an alternate Earth, switch bodies with Dr. Watson, and travel to another dimension.
Take a look at the Kickstarter and see some of the great rewards on offer for our backers – and do let me know if you get yourself a copy of this brilliant anthology. I can’t wait to read all the stories myself!
I’m delighted to announce that my little slice of Victorian feminist sci-fi, ‘Tabula Rasa’, found a home with the fine folks at Empyreome and was published this week in their October issue. You can find it free to read online at their website, and I would love to know what you think of it! This is a story that’s particularly close to my heart, and its characters have stayed with me long after I finished writing their tale. Story notes will follow next month, but for now, please do read it and the other stories in this issue. Empyreome have been a pleasure to work with from start to finish, and they definitely deserve your support and time.
