Two things of note for you: first, Abaddon Books are up to something.
They’re running a fortnight-long Summer of Steampunk event over on Facebook, all in honour of their long-running Pax Britannia series…
Break out your top hats and holster your Tesla Mark Seven blunderbuss, the Summer of Steampunk from Abaddon Books is here!
To mark a major new direction for the world’s longest-running series of steampunk novels, Pax Britannia, Abaddon is running two weeks of steampunk shenanigans at the new dedicated Pax Britannia Facebook page.
From free eBooks and competition giveaways to debate and word from our authors about what makes steampunk so much fun, join us for two weeks of celebration of this most charming, exciting and ever-growing line of books.
The event will culminate in a major announcement about a surprising new book which throws away the rulebook of how genre publishing works.
A must for any fan of steampunk or pulp adventure action, Pax Britannia is set in a radically different version of the late 20th Century where the age of the Victorians never ended and Queen Victoria remains alive thanks to steampunk technology.
From Jonathan Green’s swashbuckling agent of the Empire, Ulysses Quicksilver, to Al Ewing’s ultra-violent El Sombra, Pax Britannia takes steampunk adventure to a new level.
Jonathan Oliver, editor-in-chief of Abaddon Books, said:
“Pax Britannia is one of the longest running steampunk adventures in publishing, and our Summer of Steampunk will bring a host of goodies bound to appeal to new and old readers of the series alike.”
Whatever it is, it’s bound to be interesting.
Cool Thing Number Two is also on Facebook: the Department 19 Fantasy Casting competition. Very simply, go to the page and leave a comment explaining who should play your favourite D19 character, and why. There’s some amazing prizes, and everyone likes the “If it was a movie…” game.
So what are you waiting for? Off you go….
