Win a Book




A fantastical reimagining of the American West which draws its influence from steampunk, the American western tradition, and magical realism

The world is only half made. What exists has been carved out amidst a war between two rival factions: the Line, paving the world with industry and claiming its residents as slaves; and the Gun, a cult of terror and violence that cripples the population with fear. The only hope at stopping them has seemingly disappeared—the Red Republic that once battled the Gun and the Line, and almost won. Now they’re just a myth, a bedtime story parents tell their children, of hope.

To the west lies a vast, uncharted world, inhabited only by the legends of the immortal and powerful Hill People, who live at one with the earth and its elements. Liv Alverhyusen, a doctor of the new science of psychology, travels to the edge of the

made world to a spiritually protected mental institution in order to study the minds of those broken by the Gun and the Line. In its rooms lies an old general of the Red Republic, a man whose shattered mind just may hold the secret to stopping the Gun and the Line. And either side will do anything to understand how.


To Enter to win, share with me a steam punk novel you have read or know about. I will draw a winner November 8th. Leave an email address. Open to US and Canada.

Unfortunately I haven't read any steampunk yet. I do have Leviathan sitting on the shelf waiting for me. I hope to get to it within the next couple of months. It looks like a genre that I'd love! (BTW: I saw some awesome steampunk jewelry this weekend. Very nice stuff!)

I'm actually reading Soulless right now. I read Whitechapel Gods by S.M. Peters a couple of months ago & enjoyed it.
Thanks!

All good choices. I have yet to read Gail Garriger's series though I have the books on my wish list.

Also want to read Levithan and it sounds like I need to soon.

Never heard of Whitechapel Gods but will have to research it.

One good one for you all is Steamed by Katie MacAlister

If graphic novels count, I have read some of the The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Most of Alan Moore stuff I would recommend. Well, the before the 90s, haha.
