About The Forever Engine: "An alternate universe story full of action and political intrigue in the great tradition of Keith Laumer's Worlds of the Imperium. It'll probably be labeled "steampunk," but this is the all-too-rare kind of steampunk where the coal dust is black and gritty, engines run hot and stink, steam boilers are dangerous, and blood-spilling isn't the least bit Victorian."--Eric Flint, New York Times best-selling alternate history master, creator of the Ring of Fire series About Frank Chadwick's How Dark the World Becomes: "How Dark the World Becomes is a crackling debut novel that speaks of great things to come! It's whip-smart, lightning-fast and character-driven--in short it has everything required to be totally satisfying. Highly recommended."-- Jonathan Maberry,New York Times best-selling author of Assassin's Code"-- Provided by publisher.
