Happy St George's Day!

Once upon a time, a French publisher showed an interest in publishing the Pax Britannia series in translation. However, what put them off in the end was the fact that they were so British*.

I would go so far as to say that the series is quintessentially English, so to celebrate St George's Day, why not pick up a Pax Britannia omnibus today?

* Not that this stopped German publisher Luzifer-Verlag.

Long to reign over us...

Today marks another milestone achieved by our beloved monarch Queen Elizabeth II. Not only is she the longest-reigning monarch of the United Kingdom ever, she is also 90 years-old today.

Of course, in the world of Pax Britannia, in 1998 (which is as far as we've got so far in that alternate reality) Queen Victoria is still on the throne. If you've not caught up on all the adventures in print so far, you could do a lot worse than pick up the two ominbuses currently in print.

I sometimes wonder if anyone famous has read any of my books, someone in the royal family, perhaps, who enjoys my alternate steampunk universe. So, just in case someone does...

Happy Birthday, your Majesty!

God save the Queen!

Alice's Nightmare in Wonderland

Alice's Nightmare in Wonderland, my dark steampunk take on Lewis Carroll's world famous original, is proving popular on both sides of the Atlantic.

Here's what readers in the US have been saying about the book:

"It's not at all what I thought it was going to be... It's BETTER!"

"This book is so creative and cool! Its basically Dungeons and Dragons meets Goosebumps choose your own path set in Wonderland."

"I'm so excited to have this book!"

And here's what readers in the UK have had to say about Alice's Nightmare:

"Really well done, absorbing little game with definite replay value."

"Last year I rediscovered the joy of fighting fantasy style gamebooks with that old classic the Warlock of Firetop Mountain. I had forgotten how much fun these were when I was a kid! Now, take that concept and make it a lot darker, add a soupcon of steampunk, a dash of diceplay and a whole lot of the delightfully demented Alice stories by Lewis Carroll and you are a starting to get this book."

"Many of the classic Wonderland characters are featured in the story (the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts etc), but with the horrific, steampunk-infused twist that Green injects into many of his stories."

"A great combo of storytelling and gaming... The children's classic is twisted into a dark adult tale of horror and fear combined with gameplay which is adventurous and challenging, leaving Alice's fate in your hands."

The Alice's Nightmare in Wonderland Colouring Book has also proved very popular, especially in the US.
