Everyone loves a crazy Steampunk novel and they don’t come much crazier than ‘Alice’s Adventures In Steamland: The Clockwork Goddess’. The irresistable choice for this week’s ‘Book of the Week’.
ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN STEAMLAND: THE CLOCKWORK GODDESS
In Victorian America, war has erupted between Texas and New York over control of the Kansas coal fields.
Hired by Lady Busybody to kill her husband – the Mad Hatter – Alice Sin, prostitute and assassin, finds herself in the midst of it all. She could be the only hope for peace between the two Queendoms.
With Clockwork Robots, teleporting Cheshire Cats, March Hares and, of course, Queen Victoria of Hearts, this throws all the characters from Alice in Wonderland into a Steampunk melting pot and glories in the resulting chaos.
If, at the end of ‘A Clockwork Orange’, Alex had been fed on a diet of opiates, Steampunk and the works of Lewis Carroll this is the book he might have written. Unhinged but brilliant.
