Librarian Note: There is more than one author in the GoodReads database with this name. See this thread for more information.

Stephen Hunt is a British writer living in London. His first fantasy novel, For the Crown and the Dragon, was published in 1994, and introduced a young officer, Taliesin, fighting for the Queen of England in a Napoleonic period alternative reality where the wars of Europe were being fought with sorcery and steampunk weapons (airships, clockwork machine guns, and steam-driven trucks called kettle-blacks). The novel won the 1994 WH Smith Award, and the book reviewer Andrew Darlington used Hunt's novel to coin the phrase Flintlock Fantasy to describe the sub-genre of fantasy set in a Regency or Napoleonic-era period.

A very refined work in the literary genre. Not much happens (and what does is rather linear), but it all exquisitely written. If I had friends like the central character did, I'd get new ones fairly damn fast.

"For Carter Carnehan, nothing could be more exciting in his monotonous life than fighting with landowner’s son, Duncan Landor, over a girl. Carter longs for adventures and, in the spirit of ‘be careful what you wish for’, soon gets far more action..." Read more of this review »
