Next is Cherie Priest's steampunk novel Boneshaker which she describes on her blog as - "west coast steampunk Victoriana book with zombies, air ships, toxic gas clouds, mad scientists, dead folk heroes, secret criminal societies, and Bonus! extended deleted scenes from the Civil War” book;" Sounds like fun and besides it's Steampunk! Coming October 13, 2009.
And finally the cover for Nekropolis, an urban fantasy title announced from the new Angry Robot imprint last month available July 27, 2009. Zombie detective - gotta love it.
Jack Fleming's got his hands full with his wounded partner in the hospital and girlfriend Bobbi falling for the siren call of Hollywood. Jack is dodging the cops, two mob torpedoes out for his blood, running Gordy's operation, AND keeping track of a dangerously unstable vampire!
Meet Matt Richter. Private Eye. Zombie. His mean streets are the city of the dead, the shadowy realm known as Nekropolis. And in his first case, Richter must help a delectable vampire named Devona recover a legendary artifact known as the Dawnstone, before it's used to destroy the entire city. Pulp and proud, cracking wise like the reanimated corpse of Dashiell Hammett, Nekropolis is just the first of a trio of fabulous urban fantasies from the mighty Tim Waggoner.
