Tim Akers I have to admit, one of the things I find irritating about most steampunk is that it holds so slavishly to the actual world, just tweaked a bit. So, thank you.


message 1: by Matt

Matt Mcmillan The thing I like most about your recent books is that you've managed to create an original world for them while in the Steampunk genre. You didn't just go and reiterate Victorian London or The Old West, you went and built a world from the ground up.
And it works. Its gives the novels something of their own. I don't have to expect the formalities, or Tea time, or heavy cultural references. Those can get in the way of similar genre books.
And though the stories may get dark at times, it also lightens up and isn't 24/7 serious. Just having the speck here and there of humor or good tone in a dark story can make it more inclinable to keep reading.
