Her Majesty’s Mysterious Conveyance

Coming soon from Echelon Press is this neat little anthology of steampunk novellas – six in total, including my story, The Wasp in the Lotus.

Her Majesty’s Mysterious Conveyance will be available as both an ebook and a print anthology, and as I understand it while Echelon is a US-based small press, there will be a UK printer and distributor as well. By my estimate, the six novellas should bring the book to around 120,000 words, so it’ll be a good, solid read. The anthology carries a vague theme, that each story contains a Queen of some sort; the heroine of my piece is none other than Tatiana Romanov, Tzarina of Russia and the sole survivor of the failed Russian Revolution of 1917, who finds herself aboard a hijacked airship.

I’ve already seen the stories by Jen and Kim, and I think we’re in for a treat. The three of us will be talking about this anthology, and steampunk in general, on the Saturday afternoon of Alt Fiction in the Mac podcast suite, so please join us!

Echelon are just finalising the details of the release, including the launch date and pricing, etc, so I’ll put those up when I get them.

  • Oooh, that looks good! Can’t wait to read it.
