Clockwork Jungle Book Is Here!

Published December 7, 2009 - 3 Comments

Yanno, I never thought it might take me two years it release an issue. We were supposed to be quarterly! Fast turnaround, having everything together, a well-oiled machine.


It’s been a long time in the making, but it’s here at last, and I couldn’t be more pleased with how it turned out: The Clockwork Jungle Book. 175 pages, 20 stories, chock-full of fabulous steampunk animal parables from Jay Lake, Jess Nevins, Lou Anders, Shweta Narayan, and a dozen others! And it’s a gorgeous lovely book, too, with wonderful illustrations from 6 artists, and photos of the contributors decked out in their steampunk finery! Grab your copy today. OR ELSE! Sales have been brisk so far; get your copy before they run out.

Watch the Shimmer site over the coming weeks, as we bring you special treats: the authors reading from their works. In some cases, they read the whole story! It’s always cool to me to hear what an author sounds like, whether it’s Jay Lake’s authoritative storytelling or Vince Pendergast’s Australian accent.

Tick, tock, tick, tock.

I was wondering what the difference was between your “miscalanea” & your “uncategorized” posts?

Hi Chris! Ha, “uncategorized” just means I forgot to apply a category. I wanted to be able to distinguish between the truly miscellaneous, and the ones I just didn’t label right. Like this one!

Great news about the book and congratulations to everyone involved! I can’t wait to read it.

P.S. After the words “two years” you wrote the word “it” and it is supposed to be “to”. Just thought I’d let you know!
