“A madcap excursion.”
“The comparison to Alan Moore’s great comic series is probably the most apt, both in the form of a collection of historic and literary characters and in the tone of Moore’s delight in the obscene. Lansdale ramps both up to hilarious excess.”
“Lansdale reminds me somewhat of Terry Pratchett, if Pratchett was an irascible cuss with an affection for scatological humour.... If you want your steampunk serious, sombre, or squeaky-clean, stay far away from Lansdale. For myself, he’s a breath of flatulent air in the midst of steampunk taking itself far too seriously.”
Praise for Zeppelins West
“Irrepressible, irreverent and unpredictable.... Legends of the Old West, plus characters both real and fictional, enliven the shenanigans.... [T]his novel is one big joyride from start to finish.”
Praise for Flaming London
“Wait a minute! What’s going on here? Only one of the wildest-alternate-worlds, rip-in-space-time, SF-pastiche romps this side of fifties B-movies.”

Only Joe R. Lansdale could dream up a seal as the hero of his books. This is Lansdale at his wild , imaginative, grotesque and vulgar best. One word of caution: this is NOT a new Ned adventure as I discovered to my disappointment but "Zeppelins West" and "Flaming London" in a single book. For those who haven't read the first two, this book is a great deal. Those of us who have read the first books will just have to wait for another.
