That is just counting a very small portion of the YA steampunk available. Gail Carriger and Meljean Brook are two auto-buys for me in the adult market, and I look forward to new (and dangerous) additions to steampunk-land in the coming months, such as Adrienne Kress’ The Friday Society, Jay Kristoff’s Stormdancer, among others. Steampunk stories are always pure FUN for me to read. And I’d love to devote more time to them.
It is with this in mind that I’ve decided to host a Steampunk Week at Adventures of Cecelia Bedelia (my sister made me the lovely button). It’ll run from September 16-22, and I’m going to focus on one book each day from the list below. Pay attention, because this is also the giveaway list!
The Iron Wyrm Affair by Lilith Saintcrow
God Save the Queen by Kate Locke
Dead Reckoning by Mercedes Lackey and Rosemary Edghill
The Unnaturalists by Tiffany Trent
Skylark by Meagan Spooner
Innocent Darkness by Suzanne Lazear
The Dark Unwinding by Sharon Cameron
Now, the good part (a.k.a. the GIVEAWAY): one entrant will receive a book of his/her choice from the list above. To enter, simply fill out the FORM. Giveaway open internationally (all books to ship via the Book Depository), will end on August 31 at 11:59pm EST. Winner will be selected randomly and notified by email. Good luck!
If you are interested in featuring steampunk on your blog during that week as well, send me your links and I’ll do a round-up (or two).
So tell me: is there a steampunk book on your radar that you can’t wait to read? Which one?
