Happy Moby Dick Day!

Did you know that today (18 October 2012) marked the 161st anniversary of the first publication of the great American novel Moby Dick, here in Britain in 1851? Google marked the occasion as only Google knows how.

Now how's this for a coincidence? I received an email today from Scott Harrison, editor of Resurrection Engines, telling me that the book will be released on 1 December and to start pimping the book on my blog and elsewhere.

Resurrection Engines is a steampunk anthology, published by Snowbooks, that features 16 brand new stories from some of the most exciting names writing in genre fiction today, that reimagine or retell classic works of literary fiction in a steampunk stylee. And guess what... my story is a reimagining of Moby Dick.

You couldn't make it up, you really couldn't...
