Enter the steamman

Have you ever wondered what one of the steammen from the far-future Steamman Free State (‘Court of the air’, ‘Jack Cloudie’, ‘Secrets of the Fire Sea’, ‘Kingdom Beyond the Waves’ etc etc) would look like in real life? Well, wonder no more, because these keen readers of my Jackelian novels brought one along to the 2011 Dickens Christmas Faire in San Francisco.

Good work, ladies and gentlemen, Boxiron and Coppertracks would both approve.


I am an author of various fantasy, science fiction, crime and other genre books from Gollancz, Hachette and HarperCollins. Some day I hope to grow up and be an astronaut. Exploring Mars would be nice.
