Special Sunday reading for you (well, those of you who are yet to devour this splendid book) from “epic steampunk Firefly” Steal the Sky, the first instalment in Megan E O’Keefe‘s Scorched Continent series.
It’s fresh, bright and brilliant. As the nice Joseph Heller at NPR said: “it’s a buddy tale, a heist caper, a socioeconomic thriller and a steampunk-seasoned fantasia all at once. And it fires beautifully on all cylinders.”

Ho, ho, ho! Merry (almost) Christmas!
Although for eleven months of the year we are angry, seething robots, threatening to overthrow earth’s puny leaders and instil some cybernetic terror from our orbital death platform, we’re actually pretty merry when it comes to the holidays.
