“The Falling Machine is quite simply the coolest steampunk superhero book I’ve ever read. . . . Imagine if Gangs of New York had been directed by Jules Verne, instead of Martin Scorsese, [and] you’re probably not too far off.”
– Portland Book Review

“If Stan Lee had lived in the 1880s, [The Falling Machine] is the book he would have written- steampunk superheroes. Filled with larger-than-life characters, cliff-hanger action, and ingenious gadgets so richly realized you’ll feel the steam hissing from them, at its heart, it’s a two-fisted meditation on the mythic glories of heroism and the tragic frailties of the heroes themselves.”
-Clay Griffith and Susan Griffith, authors of the Vampire Empire trilogy

“[A] glorious conceit. . . steampunk superheroes in Gilded Age New York City. [The Falling Machine] offers cocked-eyed adventure and the high camp of steampunk wrapped around a story of moral choice, family loyalty, and the ultimate question of who gets to be counted as a person. A ripping yarn that strikes all the right notes, [it] will delight and entertain you.”
-Jay Lake, Campbell Award-winning author of Mainspring and Green
