The artists launched a Kickstarter campaign for Dr. Falke’s Oraculum, “a book of images and text for augury and bibliomancy.” They’re using staged photography to tell the continuing story of a fictitious cabaret troupe.
In this month’s roundup: New books by Gail Carriger, Jeannie Lin, Jessica Lucci, Patricia Loofbourrow, R.J. Metcalf, Anne Renwick, and William LJ Galaini.
The date will be the 12th anniversary of Soulless, the author’s debut novel. That makes it “my 12th author birthday,” Carriger told her fans. She still hasn't revealed the book’s title.
The omnibus contains three previously released stories: The novellas Romancing the Werewolf and Romancing the Inventor plus a short story, “Meat Cute: The Hedgehog Incident.” Subterranean Press originally released it as a limited-edition hardback that quickly sold out.
More Frankenbots from writer and illustrator Michael Ferrone, plus new releases from Laura Strickland, Craig Gallant, Honor Raconteur, Heather Massey, Ruxandra Tarca and many others.
Jessica Lucci has released Steampunk Pride, a collection of LGBTQ-themed short fiction. The book follows the May release of Tequila Sheila and Other Tall Tales, another collection of the author’s short fiction.
It’s Book 5 in her Mysterious Devices series.
Tor.com is out with A Master of Djinn, the first full-length novel by P. Djèlí Clark. The story takes place in the same alternate-world, early 20th century Cairo that was the setting for Clark’s acclaimed novella The Haunting of Tram Car 015.
Mark R. Brandon’s Inkerman follows the March release of a story collection. It’s about a British Army captain who encounters unusual military technology in 1867 Crimea.
The novella about London’s “greatest and most covert spy” doesn’t have a title yet. It will be the third in the series, which is a spinoff of her Finishing School books.
