The attack on Tock House

Here’s some nice new artwork based on a scene from my first novel in the Jackelian series, The Court of the Air.

It’s the scene where Tock House comes under attack and the steamman Coppertracks sends out his war-like drone to deal with the trouble makers.

This picture was done in pencil by Liverpool-based illustrator and all round good chap, Andrew Tolley.


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.

    Steampunk!! Well done, sir-the Queen would be proud. The automaton metalic mechanical biot is rendered exquisitely.

    That was my best Wells take on it from the dashing 90’s…
