The Father of Steampunk Signs With Angry Robot
KW Jeter coined the term Steampunk, but unbelievably his classic novels Infernal Devices and Morlock Night have been out of print since the early 1980s. Angry Robot are delighted to announce that we are bringing them back to a new generation of readers in paperback, audio
and eBook formats.
Infernal Devices tells the story of George – a Victorian watchmaker who has inherited his father’s shop, though not his talent. A tale of time travel, music and sexual intrigue, Infernal Devices is a true classic.
Morlock Night, meanwhile, is a wild sequel to Wells’ The Time Machine – having acquired a device for themselves, the brutish Morlocks return to invade sleepy old England…
So, don your brass goggles, wind your mechanisms and sit back with a couple of true classics from a steam-driven Angry Robot. Infernal Devices and Morlock Night will be published worldwide by Angry Robot.
UK/Aus: October 2010 (ISBNs: 9780007365753 / 9780007365760)
Infernal Devices / Morlock Night
US/Can: December 2010 (ISBNs: tbc)

Angry Robot is the new genre imprint from HarperCollins, bringing you the best in new SF,F and WTF?! Our first titles hit the stores in the UK and Australia on 1st July 2009. We debut in the US in May 2010.
Now, other that John Marco’s Starfinder (with its touch of Steampunk), I’ve yet to read a proper Steampunk-novel; I’ve had Stephen Hunt’s work on my TBR-list for a while now but just haven’t had the time to get to the books. So I’m very glad that Angry Robot is not only delving into Steampunk, but bringing back work that was not available; I’ve read some of KW Jeter’s work (only the Star Wars novels), but not enough to have formed a proper opinion. Looking forward to this!
