Airship Friday: The Longest Aircraft in the World

Here's a question for all you fans of Pax Britannia and Steampunk in general. Where would we be without our airships? Airships feature predominantly throughout Steampunk literature and in the case of my own Ulysses Quicksilver novels, they have a vital part to play in Unnatural History, Blood Royal and Anno Frankenstein. And now it looks like they're on their way back in the real world too! Click this link to find out more.

Win the chance to meet Jonathan Green at the Sci-Fi Weekender (sort of)

In just under five weeks time, I shall be appearing at the Sci-Fi Weekender 5 in North Wales. Archimedes the Steampunk Parrot will also be in attendance, as will other authors such as Gareth L. Powell, Sam Stone and Robert Rankin.

I shall be hosting various panels over the course of the weekend as well as selling my books, not to mention catching up with old friends (and probably making a few news ones, if previous years are anything to go by). I'll even have my young Pax Britannia companions in tow this time.

If you are thinking of attending, but haven't got tickets yet, might I direct you towards Nerd Vs World and the competition they are currently running?

Who knows, if you win I might see you there. ;-)

Time's Arrow reviewed by the Crinoline Robot

Here's a link to a new review of Time's Arrow, by the Crinoline Robot. And here's the opening paragraph, just to give you a taster:

"You could be forgiven for thinking Jonathan Green is one of my favourite writers as I've reviewed more books by him than by any other author on this blog. I've reviewed three of Green's other 'Pax Britannia' novels with their dashing dandy hero Ulysses Quicksilver: Blood Royal,Dark Side and Anno Frankenstein. I said in my review of the latter that it showed a lightness of touch not evident in the earlier novels. Time's Arrow shows a similar playfulness, while returning to the more Victorian setting of the ones beforeAnno Frankenstein. I really do think it's the strongest book in the series so far. I don't think Green is one of my favourite writers yet, but if he carries on writing like this he'll definitely be on my must-read list."

The Crinoline Robot's reviews of my other books aren't quite so flattering (other than the one about Anno Frankenstein) but at least it would appear that I'm improving with every book, which can only be a good thing.
