Overview

The Galvanic Century steampunk series is set in an alternate history where the Victorian era has extended beyond the turn of the century, great airships plow the skies, and galvanic energy animates unspeakible horrors.

Consulting detectives Alton Bartleby and James Wainwright have been hired to stop the Scissorman, a nightmarish serial killer. Can they track him down despite obstruction from Scotland Yard, or will the vicious killer turn more of London's children into orphans?

He maintains a blog on postmodern media, dabbles in indie game development, and is a bit of a foodie.

    It's a nice short story something between Sherlock Holmes/Dr. Wa

    It's a nice short story something between Sherlock Holmes/Dr. Watson and Frankenstein's monster. This 'monster' has got a kind of soul especially for abused children and therefor is keeping them safe. Thanks to the love and protection for a little Chinese girl the two main characters are able to survive.
    It's a fast-paced enjoyable reading.
