Celebrate Steampunk with Liesel Schwarz and Mark Hodder!

at our London Megastore

Join us for a Steampunk evening featuring signings by LIESEL SCHWARZ and MARK HODDER! They will be signing their newest titles THE CLOCKWORK HEART and THE SECRET OF ABDU EL YEZDI at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Friday 9th August from 6 – 7pm.

A Clockwork Heart is the second of Liesel’s thrilling Steampunk adventures in the Chronicles of Light and Shadow… and only Eleanor Chance – the oracle, the girl they call Pythia – has a hope of saving the unfortunate souls that are vanishing from the streets of London. Souls that are burdened with the slow death from a clockwork heart.

Mark Hodder’s The Secret of Abdu El Yezdi, Captain Richard Francis Burton returns to London expecting to marry his fiancé, Isabel Arundell, and be awarded the consulship of Damascus. However George V requires an agent to investigate a sequence of disappearances, and Burton, whether he likes it or not, is the man for the job. Engineering and medical luminaries - such as Isambard Kingdom Brunel and Florence Nightingale - are among the missing, but the most significant absence is that of Abdu El Yezdi, an inhabitant of the Afterlife who, in the two decades since the assassination of Queen Victoria, has been Prime Minister Disraeli's most trusted advisor.
