A thrilling new steampunk adventure for Burton & Swinburne.
A former BBC writer, editor, journalist and Web producer, Mark Hodder has worked in all the new and traditional medias. He was based in London for most of his working life until 2008, when he relocated to Valencia in Spain.
Serious literary fun as Mark Hodder vaults to the front of the new
steampunk writers pack. Elaborately researched and name-checked,
THE SECRET OF ABDU EL YEZDI races Victorian explorer Sir Richard
Burton through a diabolically baffling maze of historical
possiblities -- plus there's corsets and airships. Hard to imagine
any lover of alternate British empires not being thoroughly amazed
and entertained * K.W. Jeter *
Great fun, thought-provoking, highly literate and beautifully written * Daily Mail *
