Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Twit Publishing announces long awaited release of Dieselpunk, an Anthology!
Eight exciting tales of Dieselpunk adventure and intrigue!
New and exciting worlds that never were (but should have been)!
In planning for the last year and featuring work by some of the up and coming authors of the Dieselpunk movement (including some of us that frequent and/or contribute to Dieselpunks.org), this anthology represents possibly the first time an outside publisher has shown an interest in fiction from our culture and aesthetic. Twit, best known for their Pulp! anthologies, has expressed their excitement for and desire to get in "on the ground floor" of Dieselpunk, and may well have gotten themselves in on the game just as we get ready to explode onto the scene.
In short, this is perhaps the first mass-market dead tree release of Dieselpunk fiction, with stories of pulp, noir, adventure, fantasy, science fiction, and alternate history.
Charlie Shaw and the Belfast Terror by C. S. Nelson
In 1940s Los Angeles, Kennedy is a private dick hired by the mayor to spy on his estranged daughter, Charlie Shaw. Seems easy enough, but that’s before you throw in a Mafia godfather, potatoes, and Nazi Stormtroopers.
The Incident at Sycamore Ridge by Gary Madden
Alan Roth just needs the money. That’s what he tells himself, at least, when wealthy capitalist Steven Mudd sends for him to write a favorable news story about how he will smash a strike. At the eldritch mine, though, Roth learns the true secret.
Missy Gin and the Trouble She Was In by Lara Ek
An airship journeys through the Great Blue into Yesterday. Missy Gin needs to be careful though, cause she’ll be lucky to survive til tomorrow.
Yankee Diesel Dandy by Jeremy Simmons
In post-World War I America, the German occupation of America’s Eastern Seaboard has finally been expelled, but there’s still plenty of mopping up for Madge to do in Annapolis. You never know who may be a friend and who just wants to kill you.
Cocktails on the Street of Bones by Jack Philpott (aka Yours Truly, the Cap'n)
A smuggler, Antonio Lagarto, becomes entangled in the cloak-and-dagger game of European powers in the Caribbean. What the Americas be like if the English hadn't established dominance in the New World?
Dex Puncher, American Hero by Nick Keller
World War I saw the advance of military technology to levels never before seen. Dex Puncher and his Bloody Dogs use their own secret weapons as they fight their way through, and over, the Western Front to destroy the deadliest weapon the Kaiser ever built!
Changing of the Cogs by Frank R. Sjodin
Gethmisca has long survived the Continental War by maintaining its neutrality. But who in the Shaking City turns the gears? The people, politicians, or the scientists?
The Phallus of Osiris by Craig Gabrysch
Tabitha’s a rough and tumble frontier woman in Petrograd on the eve of the Russian Revolution looking for a powerful relic. There’s gonna be trouble, but that’s just the way she likes it.
With an introduction by the Dieselpope Larry Aymett himself!
I recommend checking it out, though I am maybe a little biased in that regard...
