Steampunk Saturday

Okay, so it’s only Friday, but when a young author about town finds such fine steampunk as Darth Vader’s involvement with world war one, and the steampunk rockgroup the Clockwork Dolls, he’s just got to publish, you know what I mean?

First up, Darth Vader admits personal responsibility for the carnage of world war one.

Next, the steampunk rock group that is the Clockwork Dolls let rip with their vocal chords, and do I mean let rip!

Are you all steamed up yet? Maybe I’ll make this a regular feature!


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.

    Not siblings as such. The current ruling nobility of the Kingdom of Jackals were originally elected by a council of elders after the ice age ended. Molly is distantly related to the leader of the slave revolt who helped overthrew the empire’s iron rule over the world.
