About this Series
The Gideon Smith series is a fantastical steampunk fable set against an alternate historical backdrop: the ultimate Victoriana/steampunk mash-up!
In an alternate nineteenth century where a technologically advanced Britain holds sway over most of the known world and the American Revolution never happened, young Gideon Smith is firmly established as the Hero of the Empire. David Barnett’s riproaring steampunk adventures, beginning with Gideon Smith and the Mechanical Girl are all about a Britain that never was…but should have been.
“A great-hearted, rollicking romp through the many worlds of classic pulp–loads of fun.” — Nick Harkaway, author of The Gone-Away World and Angelmaker
