    Tweeted that I liked this ‘back cover’ and would read the book based on it. I totally get it in that it reads like a poster on a brick wall in a foggy London street but if I was being really picky I’d say that the ‘Play bill’ of attractions goes on just a couple of items too long.

    Once you get to the scenario ‘In an alternative 1890…’ its very filmic and I can picture the first para scrolling downwards with suitably Industrial Victorian backdrop. Its definately made me want to read a genre I havent read before.

    Having been messing with my own upcoming backcover for days now!

      Hey, John. No, thank *you* for listening and taking the time to leave a comment – it’s much appreciated. Graphic Audio have done a great job with them. I think the second book’s out now (at least on download) and the third will be done after publication in print by Tor Books in October. Thanks again!

    Hi David, just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed all three of the Gideon Smith books so far! They really are a fresh take on the steampunk genre and the books somehow manage to not take themselves to seriously while simultaneously addressing some fairly complex moral/ethical issues. I love the deconstruction of several of the turn-of-the-century icons (eg Sherlock Holmes) and concepts (Rule Britannia!). Looking forward to the next Gideon Smith book already!

    A Fanatic American Fan!
