Reviews, links and good feelings all around

October 24, 2011 - 2:12 am No Comments

Just a few – but they definitely bear sharing. Check ‘em out!


  • The Lost Ent-Wife reviews Clementine – I’m always happy to see this one get some attention – and to with regards to the certain-to-be-asked questions about its trade paperback status, please allow me to direct you to this FAQ.

  • Paul Goat Allen at the B&N Book Clubs tackles Ganymede – And frankly, this kind gent is so charmingly effusive that I almost feel it’s too immodest to post this link. Note that this did not quite stop me.

  • Once Upon A Time takes on Boneshaker – Choice immodest quotes which I hope might prompt readers to take a stab at this book: “Boneshaker is a cleverly weaved nail-biting story full of intricacies and hidden history….It is a fantastically written piece of fiction. It’s atmospheric, chilling, and dark.”

Links and Reviews: Rounded Up for your ease-of-reading

First up – a truly wonderful review over at Tor.com, courtesy of the inimitable Ay-leen the Peacemaker: This is American Steampunk. I swear, there’s nothing more pleasant and flattering than watching a smart person think about your material, and respond to it at length. I can’t thank Ay-leen enough for taking the time and trouble!

Next, I have a handy-dandy link that could win you a fat stack of steampunk books for free: Steampunk sweepstakes! All you have to do is sign up for the Tor.com newsletter (an inoffensive document, I assure you – as I’m a subscriber myself) … and you’ll be entered for a chance to win 16 steampunk tomes, including Boneshaker, Dreadnought, and Ganymede. Go check it out!

And now for an assortment of shorter bits, for your scrolling, clicking, or curiosity-satisfying pleasure:


  • Steampunk ebook sale – In honor of Tor.com’s “Steampunk Week,” you can get Boneshaker for $2.99 on the device of your choosing. (U.S. only, I’m afraid.)

  • Ganymede review at Tor.com – Also by Ay-leen, who is swiftly becoming one of my favorite people in the world.

  • Ganymede review at Bitten By Books – Choice quote: “Priest once again delivers a rousing adventure that demonstrates both her love of history and her definitive knack for playing with and bending it to fit the purpose of her captivating universe.”

  • Ganymede review at LitStack – Choice quote: “… amazing at detail, brilliant at transforming an imagined, impossible history in such a way that flying airships and a decades-long Yankee Invasion seems not only plausible but simply neglected in our history books.”

Thanks so much, everyone! And please keep those reviews coming.
