Storm & Fury Adventures Collections by Gail Z Martin and Larry N Martin

A series of novella steampunk, science fiction stories with airships, airbikes, zombies, golem, and werewolves. Set in the world of the Iron & Blood novels.
Alternative history 1898 New Pittsburgh.

Mitch and Jacob work for The Department of Supernatural Investigations. Together they follow orbs, chase down bad guys and blow things up. It’s part supernatural, part fantasy with lots of gears that are part of the steampunk genre.

Storm & Fury is a collection of short stories and novellas that really show how much fun the Steampunk genre can be.  If you have been wanting to dip your feet into this genre these short stories may be a good way to start.

What fun it must be to work at the Department of Supernatural Investigations.   Set in the world of the Iron & Blood novels, this book contains 7 short stories/novella and 2 bonus content stories along with an excerpt from the Iron & Blood novel.  Most of these stories feature

*I was given this free review copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This is a collection of novellas and short stories set in the worlds of Iron & Blood novels and Storm & Fury Adventures. It's sort of an anthology. Some of the stories were published in other anthologies, but it's always great to have them all in one handy place.

This is my first adventure in a world I've been wanting to visit. I'm pleased that I took the journey. I love how destruction seems

As a devoted fan of these two fabulous authors, I'm always delighted to come upon a new collection. STORM AND FURY's stories are set in an alternate U.S.: New Pittsburgh 1898. If you love Steampunk, if you love the supernatural genre, you'll definitely adore this collection. In addition to the fact that Gail Z. Martin and Larry Martin are such excellent writers, their magical spell on the reader inspires immediate suspension of disbelief: no matter the genre, whether fantasy, steampunk, urban fa ...more

DNF for me. While I've loved the authors' other works, I just don't think I'm a steampunk fan.
This was a very fun collection of stories. It’s a little steampunk, a little urban fantasy, a little historical fiction, and a helluvalot of fun. Includes: Airship Down, Ruin Creek, Resurrection Day, The Hunt, Grave Voices, and Rogue. Plus two bonus stories: Ghost Wolf and a Steampunk fairy tale: The Patented Troll. There’s also a preview of another Martin & Martin book.

Mitch and Jacob reminded me a bit of the TV show Supernatural. Mitch is the charming, pretty one. Jacob is a bit more moody, a

This is a collection of short stories set in New Pittsburgh, back in 1898 and the agents of an organisation called The Department of Supernatural Investigation. The two main agents in the stories are Mitch and Jacob and are nicknamed Storm & Fury, due to their last names, but also the manner in which most of their investigations are carried out! The stories are set in the world of the Iron & Blood books, which I haven’t come across as yet, by these authors, and also the Storm & Fury adventure bo ...more

You get an intense collection of shorts that encompasses fantasy, steampunk, supernatual, magic, the unknown, the different, the unique, and much more. The writers Martin have done a fab job with give you something to spark you on different levels. Take the time to enjoy one story at a time or gobble down several or binge on all that are offered. With each new story you find more to find wonderous about the 1890s and the era build by writers Martin. The world building was great. The various char ...more

Storm & Fury is a collection of stories about Mitch Storm and Jacob Drangosavich, agents in the Department of Supernatural Investigation protecting a reimagined world in the late 1800s from (your not necessarily traditional) otherworldly beings. Mitch and Jacob complement each other really well as lead characters. This can be described as an urban historical fantasy setting with some elements of steampunk. I had not read other books in the series featuring these characters prior to picking up th ...more

I received this book as part of an ARC review. The writing is as good as the other books I've read from Gail and Larry. I like the devil may care attitude of Storm and Jacob who really doesn't reign him in much. In a way they remind me of James Bond in that they are extremely hard on their equipment but their cases are much more interesting them James' ever could be. While I did find the futuristic elements of workmen and steam bikes hard to handle at first considering it was set in the 1890s, I ...more

This collection of stories was a great introduction to the world of New Pittsburgh. It's got a bit of everything, action, adventure, the paranormal, and mystery all wrapped up with a steampunk bow. It was great fun, and after reading these stories I would definitely look up full length works in the world, especially with the main characters from most of these tales. An added bonus is the location. As a Pittsburgher seeing my hometown turned into an 1898 steampunk city was very enjoyable. The aut ...more

Storm and Fury was an enjoyable read. It was amusing to listen to the relationship between easy-going, too-ready-to-blow-things-up Mitch Storm and his partner Jacob Drangosavich who could never seem to manage to keep him reined in. The mix of not-quite-modern technology using 19th-century technology was intriguing, as well as meeting wunderkind Adam Farber, the inventor of said technology, who was always as full of coffee as he could be.

The narrator was pleasant to listen to and did an excellent
This book collects seven of the adventures of Mitch Storm and Jacob Drangosavich from the Department of Supernatural Investigations. The tales are set in an alternate steam-punk world centered around New Pittsburgh, but going where the adventures lead. There are encounters with very strange airships, alien visitors, zombies, animated dolls, magic users and werewolves. As a bonus there are two short stories ("Ghost Wolf" which I had read in an anthology of super-hero stories and "The Patented Tro ...more
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This is a good steam-punk style collection of shorts. You don't need to have read other books in the series to understand these stories (they're actually a great introduction to this world). The stories are a good mix of multi-chapter stories and quick-read short stories.

Mitch and Jacob are constantly pushing the limits (and occasionally stuck being shipped off to the frontier as punishment), but they pull off some amazing feats towards

I am relatively new to the steampunk genre. I’ve never been 100% sure I would enjoy it so having a set of mini stories to ease me in was absolutely perfect. Great bite sized pieces to lure me and get me hooked. I really liked the way mechanical engineering and Victorian society are seamlessly introduced and the world in which they live sounds amazing. I live Storm and Fury, their relationship is comfortable and adventurous. You are immediately drawn to them with the first story and all the addit ...more

I love a good steampunk yarn, and Gail Z. Martin and Larry N. Martin’s Storm & Fury: A Storm & Fury Adventures Collection is just full of them. Truly great world building and a fantastic leading duo in Mitch Storm and Jacob Drangosavich, these stories definitely “satisfy the itch” of anyone with a craving for fun stories in this genre. But for the fact that I’m literally dictating this review to my husband from my hospital bed I could go on and on with praises. The book definitely deserves it. S ...more

Gail Z. Martin does it again. She writes these truly intriguing thrillers set in various fantastic universes and makes them so engrossing that it is next to impossible to put any of them down to deal with life. In this one, we have Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin in an alternate-universe steampunk Pittsburgh hunting supernatural beings while dealing with victorian age society. I'm not sure which is more difficult - monster hunting or dealing with society.

I like the stories where there actually was a resolve to the investigation better than the stories that ended with a maybe next time.

I received this book free as a book blogger doing a tour on Rita's Reading Room.

What a privilege to review this book! This is a historical urban fantasy. I would also classify it loosely at a detective noir.

Meet the unlikely heroes, Jacob and Mitch. Their boss calls them Storm and Fury, because one has no brakes and the other burns like a hot fire. Together they are a team of special investigators fighting men and monsters and the things of nightmares.
