Welcome to the world of Pax Britannia

You have just found your way to the brand new blog dedicated to the Pax Britannia series of adventure novels published by Abaddon Books.

My name is Jonathan Green. I am the creator of the Pax Britannia world and currently sole author on the series.

To date, three books have been published - Unnatural History (by Jonathan Green), El Sombra (by Al Ewing) and Leviathan Rising (by Jonathan Green) - with more to come, specifically Human Nature, which will be published in December 2008.

Through this blog I will be letting you know more about forthcoming books as well as giving you an insight into how I came to create the steampunk world of Pax Britannia and the hero of my books Ulysses Quicksilver. I would hope that it will also become a place where fans of the books can come to discuss the series.

For the time being, here's a taster of what the series is all about.

In the closing years of the 20th century the British Empire's rule is still going strong. Queen Victoria is about to celebrate her 160th jubilee, kept alive by advanced steam technology. London is a fantastical sprawling metropolis where dirigibles roam the skies, robot bobbies enforce the law and dinosaurs are on display in London Zoo. Welcome to Magna Britannia, a steam driven world full of fantastical creations and shady villains. Here dashing dandies and mustachioed villains battle for supremacy while below the city strange things stir in the flooded tunnels of the old London Underground.

I will be posting again soon but you should especially look out for some exciting news regarding how you can make an appearance in the next Pax Britannia novel.

Until then...
