Description

So, dear reader, you thought Spiderman and Iron Man was the ultimate team-up? Or Captain America and the Hulk, perhaps? No! Such paltry partnerships were long before authors Charles Dickens and Stephen Hunt teamed up together to bring the world the steampunk adaptation of A Christmas Carol. This tome imaginatively entitled 'A STEAMPUNK Christmas Carol ... the fantastical adaptation no-one asked for, yet everyone somehow desperately needed.Yes, this - spoilers - classic tale of a grumpy miser's Xmas-related redemption has been recast in the Jackelian Kingdom, a far-future steampunk Earth where Great Britain has rejoined the European mainland through continental drift (Brexiteer trigger warning).The original tale has surely been vastly improved by the addition of airships, steam-driven computers and a robot called Boffin.Forget the Muppet version. Forget that TV one with Captain Picard as Scrooge. 'A Steampunk Christmas Carol' is surely the comical and light-hearted definitive version that will be remembered millions of years in the future, after humanity has risen and fallen countless times across the endless cycle of history.And if it isn't? Well, failing some great technological advancements in immortality treatments or cryogenic suspension, you, dear reader are not going to be around to know about it.Or, are you...?Now with extra cogs and a SHOCK!!! ending thrown in for no extra cost.-----------ABOUT THE AUTHORStephen Hunt is the creator of the much-loved 'Far-called' fantasy series (Gollancz/Hachette), as well as the 'Jackelian' series, published across the world via HarperCollins alongside their other fantasy authors, George R.R. Martin, J.R.R. Tolkien, Raymond E. Feist and C.S. Lewis. -----------REVIEWSPraise for Stephen Hunt's novels: 'Mr. Hunt takes off at racing speed.'- THE WALL STREET JOURNAL'Hunt's imagination is probably visible from space. He scatters concepts that other writers would mine for a trilogy like chocolate-bar wrappers.' - TOM HOLT 'All manner of bizarre and fantastical extravagance.' - DAILY MAIL 'Compulsive reading for all ages.' - GUARDIAN 'Studded with invention.' -THE INDEPENDENT 'To say this book is action packed is almost an understatement... a wonderful escapist yarn!' - INTERZONE 'Hunt has packed the story full of intriguing gimmicks... affecting and original.' - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY 'A rip-roaring Indiana Jones-style adventure.' -RT BOOK REVIEWS 'A curious part-future blend.' - KIRKUS REVIEWS 'An inventive, ambitious work, full of wonders and marvels.' - THE TIMES 'Hunt knows what his audience like and gives it to them with a sardonic wit and carefully developed tension.' - TIME OUT 'A ripping yarn ... the story pounds along... constant inventiveness keeps the reader hooked... the finale is a cracking succession of cliffhangers and surprise comebacks. Great fun.' - SFX MAGAZINE 'Put on your seatbelts for a frenetic cat and mouse encounter... an exciting tale.' - SF REVU -----------READ THIS BOOK IF YOU LIKE THESE AUTHORS...Douglas Adams Neal Asher Iain M.
