Steampunk Thursday: Abaddon X, Tempus Fugit, and The Ulysses Quicksilver Omnibus Volume 2!
Two weeks ago* I was fortunate enough to attend Abaddon Books' 10th birthday party, although unfortunately I was also late enough to miss the speeches at the start. On the up side there was cake, great company, and copies of Abaddon X available to the guests, a slim volume that features my first new Ulysses Quicksilver story in three years, Tempus Fugit.
And lo, there was cake. With little Abaddon 'A's on top.
Writers, editors and their ilk. A sober bunch.
Pax Britannia: Tempus Fugit.
You can read more about the event here, as well as see a rather embarrassing photograph of Yours Truly. Apart from catching up with the likes Pat Kelleher, Lavie Tidhar, Jonathan Oliver, Jasper Bark, Jenni Hill, Scott Andrews and Rob Power (to name but a few) one of the highlights of the evening was meeting long-time Pax Britannia fan Matt Zitron.
Matt and Pat.
In other Steampunk Thursday-related news, this has been seen in the wild. Or rather, in captivity at the Abaddon offices.
