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!
