NEWS | Angry Robot to Reissue K.W. Jeter's Steampunk Classics


A few months ago I sent out this twitter:
I wish a publisher would reprint some Steampunk classics like Newman's Anno Dracula and KW Jeter's Infernal Devices.
It just so happened that Marty Halpern a freelance Editor of some very fine SFF answered me back as he knew Jeter. At the time Jeter said he wanted to keep the rights.  I like to think my little note may have inspired him to seek republication as I received this wonderful press release from Angry Robot today:
The Father of Steampunk Signs With Angry Robot

KW Jeter coined the term Steampunk, but unbelievably his classic novels Infernal Devices and Morlock Night have been out of print since the early 1980s. Angry Robot are delighted to announce that we are bringing them back to a new generation of readers in paperback, audio and eBook formats.

Infernal Devices tells the story of George – a Victorian watchmaker who has inherited his father’s shop, though not his talent. A tale of time travel, music and sexual intrigue, Infernal Devices is a true classic.

Morlock Night, meanwhile, is a wild sequel to Wells’ The Time Machine – having acquired a device for themselves, the brutish Morlocks return to invade sleepy old England…

So, don your brass goggles, wind your mechanisms and sit back with a couple of true classics from a steam-driven Angry Robot.
This is indeed splendid news. It is great to see original examples of a sub-genre movement in print so people can read where we've have come from.  And from what I know both are enjoyable reads.  I myself just tracked down an old copy of Infernal Devices after a long search.

Awesome news! The only thing about Angry Robot is it's taking forever for their books to come out in the U.S.
