Book of the Week: “The Affinity Bridge.”

I just finished The Affinity Bridge: it’s slightly later-period steampunk (1900s rather than the 1880s, which seems to be the default period for this sort of thing) that combines the detective genre with some fairly subtle horror. It’ll be interesting to see whether the series that it’s a part of will go farther into the supernatural: even so, GURPS called this sub-genre ‘Screampunk,’ and it fits.  Good grasp of the time period and a good read, but I’m not sure that I would buy the later books in the series in hardback. Still, it’s the first book in a series which is worth looking at further.

So good-bye, The Evolutionary Void. You had a good run.

    I think steampunk is a great setting for supernatural mixins because they have just enough technology to travel the world, but not enough science to know what’s out there.

    This book has been on my Amazon wishlist for a while, so thanks for the quick hit – I’m definitely interested in reading it now!
