What the Critics Say

“This is the real thing - a mad inventor, curious coins, murky London alleys and windblown Scottish Isles.... A wild and extravagant plot that turns up new mysteries with each succeeding page.” (James P. Blaylock)

Infernally good!

I've actually owned the Paperback version of this book for quite a while and have been a fan of K.W Jeter for quite some years, this is a very good audio version of a what is seen as a "steam punk" classic by some and overlooked by many. unfortunalty Audable only seems to have a couple of Mr Jeter's original fiction and none of his Horror books (of which he has done some really good work) and a lot of serializations of TV shows (i've read the Blade runner books but would rather read his fiction), this and Morlock Night are on Audable and i advise you to listen to both of them. if you have a chance get to read or listen to the following:
Dr Adder (Sci-fi in the vein of PK Dick not for the faint hearted. he actually sent this to Dick when he was a student and Dick did the forward for the paperback i have),
Dark Seeker (great Horror - crying out to be a film)
Farewell Horizonal (great Sci-fi cyberpunk and very readable)
any of his horrorbooks

An excellent original

One of, some say THE first, Steam Punk novels. I almost gave up immediately on this as the narrator didn't strike me as very good, but I persisted and this ended up being an enjoyable, fast paced story with great steam punk devices and fantastical creatures. I loved it!
