Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
 “This is the real thing – a mad inventor, curious coins, murky London alleys and windblown Scottish isles… a wild and extravagant plot that turns up new mysteries with each succeeding page.”
   James P Blaylock, author of Homunculus
 
“What we see in Infernal Devices is not just the presager of what steampunk is, but what it could have been, a marvellously self-aware and inventive attack on the obsessions and degradations of the present.”
   Strange Horizons

I don't normally write reviews, but when I do I prefer Infernal Devices. This book is not only genius in it's development and story, but in the amount of immersion this novel has. It's fantasical, sexual, and mechanical. Once you start you can't wait to see how it ends.

Infernal Devices is a strange fantasy about George Dower and how he comes to save the world from infernal devices. It takes place in nineteenth century London and is a very good book, though of certain taste. I do recommend it, though.
