Steampunk Wonderland

Flash Fiction Fridays contributor Jason G. Anderson has released a new novel, Gears of Wonderland, which puts a far different spin on the famous Lewis Carroll tale.





Here's the description.

James Riggs lives a normal life with a mind-numbing job, an overbearing boss, and a demanding fiancĂ©e. Then he witnesses the murder of his best friend. Saved from the murderer by a strange man in a white suit, James is cast down a hole and into a world he always believed was a kid’s story. Wonderland.

But things have changed since Alice’s visit. The Knave of Hearts has seized the Heart throne, conquered all of Wonderland with his steam-powered technological marvels, and rules the land with an iron fist.

Aided by the Mad Hatter's daughter, James journeys to discover why he has been brought to Wonderland and how the tattoo on his arm could be the key to Wonderland’s salvation—or its destruction.

It has been edited by Lynn O'Dell (Red Adept Reviews).

Sounds interesting, doesn't it? I love the cover.

Gears of Wonderland is available at Amazon US, Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble and Smashwords.

R. Doug: I like to give plugs to our Flash Fiction Fridays contributors. They all share their work with us, so it is the least I can do.

@angel011 - the Cheshire Cat does indeed make an appearance, although he's changed a bit over the years :)

Thanks, everyone, for the comments on the idea and cover. I had a blast writing it, and so far people seem to be enjoying it (the most important thing!)

Oh wow, I love it when writers put a new twist on an old tale. How imaginative. I want to read it.
