Product description

Review

"Skilful, clever and highly enjoyable."
- SFX

"Pulls off the impossible."
- Locus

"Lavie Tidhar's The Bookman is simply the best book I've read in a long time, and I read a lot of books. If you're worried that Steampunk has turned into a mere fashion aesthetic, then you'd better read this one. It's a stunningly imaginative remix of history, technology, literature, and Victorian adventure that's impossible to put down. The book is immensely smart and readable at the same time. I very much hope that it's the first of many such books. Buy it."
- James P Blaylock

"Literary figures emerge from the swirling fog, automatons patrol the streets, space probes head for Mars and giant lizards rule over Victorian England. A potent and atmospheric steampunk adventure."
- Chris Wooding

"The Bookman is without a doubt the most enjoyable, fascinating and captivating book I have read in a long time.
- Dailysteampunk.com

"The Bookman is a delight, crammed with gorgeous period detail, seat-of-the-pants adventure and fabulous set-pieces."
- The Guardian
