Cherie Priest is the author of two dozen books and novellas, most recently The Toll, The Family Plot, The Agony House, and the Philip K. Dick Award nominee Maplecroft; but she is perhaps best known for the steampunk pulp adventures of the Clockwork Century, beginning with Boneshaker. Her works have been nominated for the Hugo and Nebula awards for science fiction, and have won the Locus Award (among others) – and over the years, they’ve been translated into nine languages in eleven countries. Cherie lives in Seattle, WA, with her husband and a menagerie of exceedingly photogenic pets.

The end of an era.

Since the new Russian TOS have dropped here at LiveJournal - I think it's time to close this down. I've been keeping an LJ in some for another since 2000, so this really does feel Big and Sad, except...well. This page hardly gets the traffic it used to. There are still a few folks I've been keeping track of over here, and vice-versa, I'm sure; but I'm not willing to play along with the new rules.

Cherie’s Recent Updates

“And people tended not to bother a woman with a book.”
Cherie Priest, Dreadnought

“OMG YOU GUYS it has come to my attention that SOMEONE on the internet is saying that my fictional 19th century zombies are NOT SCIENTIFICALLY SOUND. Naturally, I am crushed. To think, IF ONLY I’d consulted with a zombologist or two before sitting down to write, I could’ve avoided ALL THIS EMBARRASSMENT.”
Cherie Priest

“It's funny what they say about men in uniform - how people think women just can't resist 'em. Fact is, I think we're just pleased to see a man groomed, bathed, and wearing clothes that fit him.”
Cherie Priest, Dreadnought
