My debut novel, City of Dreams and Nightmare, was released via Harper Collins imprint Angry Robot on March 4th (UK and Australia, due out in the USA this August). This is the first of a series set in the fabled city of Thaiburley, a multi-tiered metropolis of social strata and complex politics. Most of the narrative takes place in the basement level, the City Below, where Thaiburley is at its dirtiest and deadliest. The novels are urban fantasy with a heavy dose of SF and a side-order of steampunk.
Inevitably, I’ve been both excited and nervous about how the book is received, but, judging by the reviews to date, so far so good.
