Whether you’re new to Steampunk or an old veteran, Jim Musgrave’s new Steampunk adventure will please your “cogs and gears” fetish.
Here’s what one reader had to say about “Steam City Pirates”:
“Steam City Pirates (Pat O’Malley Steampunk Mysteries) fell into my lap fully formed and fully interactive. With both a Spotify Playlist with original music crafted just for this novel and the Online game, ‘Black Fish’ (more are available with registration) this book is truly a modern addition to the Steampunk Genre. For those who don’t know, Steampunk is taking the creative world by storm, from Cons to Facebook pages; thousands are devoting themselves to this sub culture of fantasy, brass and Victorian Regalia. Part Time Machine, Part Land of the Lost with a touch of mystique and handfuls of fun, Steampunk is an addictive and fashionable fantasy ripe for the inclusion in literary genius. Jim Musgrave takes on that challenge, dipping his hero, Patrick O’Malley, deep into this world–taking us along for the ride below central park, a hundred years in the past though rich with ideas and inventors hundreds (thousands) of years in the future. It would be remiss to classify this book as only a Steampunk novel; it’s much more than that. Romance, Sci-Fi, Time Travel, Fantasy, Mystery and Adventure all thread through this tale heavy with Theological Mysticism of both the Catholic and Jewish Persuasion. Steam City Pirates somehow melds these many qualities while owning a solid premise and captivating characters–both heroes and villains. Though this is a review for Steam City Pirates, I found this novel so well written and interesting that I felt compelled to seek out more by this author. Luckily, Musgrave has penned a trilogy introducing us to Pat O’Malley, his steampunk world and several of his companions in the novels; Forevermore, Disappearance at Mount Sanai and Jane the Grabber. Engaging, intelligent and refreshing, Steam City Pirates (Pat O’Malley Steampunk Mysteries) is a must read for any fan of Steampunk, Mystery, HG Wells, Edgar Allen Poe or anyone looking for the next new (old?) best thing.”
