QSFer Alex Acks has a new queer/bi steampunk collection out: Wireless.
Captain Marta Ramos, the most dangerous pirate in the Duchy of Denver, is back and she and Simms are up to their goggles in trouble.
Has General del Toro found a way to use the Infected as an army and can Captain Ramos work with her arch enemy, Colonel Geoffrey Douglas, to stop him? Can Simms join forces with the devious Deliah Nimowitz on a jailbreak, some sewer misadventures AND a high society soiree involving tea, a heist and sausages? And what about the Rail King and his nefarious plans?
Can Captain Ramos and her crew stop him before he completes his latest dastardly deed, one that may result in Deliah’s demise?
Check out the next installment of the exciting adventures of Captain Ramos and her valiant crew to find out more!
Alex is giving away an eBook copy of their book Murder on the Titania and Other Steam-Powered Adventures – first in the series. For a chance to win, comment below.
Alex Acks has created an amazing, complex steampunk world and then created a fantastic group of ne’er-do-wells to explore it. I was immediately pulled into the adventure and by the time the story came to a close, I was already hoping for another ride. – Geonn Cannon, Author of the Riley Parra series
“I find myself falling more and more in love with both Captain Ramos and Simms’s muttonchops. I would happily settle down with either. Wireless and More Steam-Powered Adventures is a real treat, featuring fun heroes with depth of character, delightful turns of phrase, and a stallion named “Dolly.” These stories are each a rollicking adventure for both steampunk and fantasy fans.” – Robyn Bennis, author of the Signal Airship series
