Talking of Pimpage and Blurbage
Meanwhile, I just finished reading a pre-pub manuscript of Jay Lake's novel, MAINSPRING, which I shall also be pimping and blurbing (assuming the editor considers the phrase "fuckload of fun" acceptable parlance in the medium of burbage). Funny enough, this is also because I liked the book.
It should, perhaps, be borne in mind that both books contain Grand Visual Conceits, airships and angels. Apart from that, and apart from the fact that they're both great reads, they're entirely different, of course. It's just that... well... Grand Visual Conceits, airships and angels... I am, I confess, a sucker for such things. Cities on chains over abysses, clockwork worlds with giant brass gears... mmmmm, nice.
