Coming Attraction: The Friday Society

For some reason, I'm craving some good ole-timey, steampunky goodness. This seems to fit the bill...

The Friday Society by Adrienne Kress
Steampunk, 440 pages
Expected publication: December 6th 2012 by Dial
Be your own hero . . .

An action-packed tale of gowns, guys, guns—and the heroines who use them all.
Set in Edwardian London, The Friday Society follows the stories of three very intelligent and talented young women, all of whom are assistants to powerful men: Cora, lab assistant; Michiko, Japanese fight assistant; and Nellie, magician’s assistant. The three young women’s lives become inexorably intertwined after a chance meeting at a ball that ends with the discovery of a murdered mystery man.

It’s up to these three, in their own charming but bold way, to solve the murder—and the crimes they believe may be connected to it—without calling too much attention to themselves.

Told with Adrienne Kress’s sharp wit and a great deal of irreverence, this Steampunk whodunit introduces three unforgettable and very ladylike—well, relatively ladylike—heroines poised for more dangerous adventures.

  2. On my wishlist! Love the cover for this one and the fact that its steampunk, there just isn't enough steampunk in the world.
