Resurrection Engines - The Cover

I’m so pleased to finally be able to share with you the cover for the Steampunk anthology I am editing for UK publishers Snowbooks. Designed by the multi-talented Emma Barnes, it really is stunning, and such fun to look at!

The anthology will feature sixteen brand new stories from some of the most exciting names writing in genre fiction today, and will be Steampunk ‘reimaginings’ or ‘retellings’ of classic works of literary fiction. Below is a list of the authors contributing to the book, along with their chosen literary work.

Unfortunately, due to a conflicting work schedule George Mann has had to reluctantly drop out of the anthology, instead we have the wonderful Jonathan Green, author of the Pax Britannica novels, joining us on the anthology. Although it’s such a shame to lose a fabulous author like George, we’re all absolutely thrilled to have Jonathan with us instead!

"Resurrection Engines: Sixteen Extraordinary Tales of Scientific Romance" will be published in hardback on June 30th, then released in paperback in time for Christmas!

Another Into The Woods Review

Another great review has popped up on the net for the Into The Woods anthology, this time from Comic Book Grrrl, a freelance writer and self-proclaimed comic book geek.

In the review she says some lovely things about The Madness From The Sea, the story I did with artist Lee Grice, which you can read below. Or you can read the entire review over on her blog here which she has illustrated with one of my favourite panels from the story (see right).

"In an effort to avoid spoilers I will mention only briefly my favourite stories. A Time For A Change, written by Ollie Masters with art by Valia Kapadai, is a lovely gentle story that contrasts nicely with some of the darker tales within the anthology, yet still has some rather grotesque imagery that segues nicely with the overall flow. The Madness From The Sea, written by Scott Harrison with art by Lee Grice, has a wonderfully Lovecraftian feel and an excellent line technique that reflects the wild weather and storyline."
