Superversive Press to release hot new Steampunk adventure by leading Hispanic science fiction author Jon Del Arroz.
Superversive Press is excited to announce For Steam And Country, the new steampunk fantasy novel, set for release in June 2017.
Six people in dark clothes descended from the side of the ship’s hull, rappelling down long ropes. They hollered like maniacs, brandishing guns and swords.
Our guard stumbled backward, mouth agape. He shook where he stood, staring at me. His Wyranth uniform had several holes in it. Before he could do or say anything else, he fell to the ground.
Blood pooled around his body. I dragged my feet and backed away. Bile rose in my throat faster than I could suppress. I’d never seen a dead man before, let alone one killed so brutally.
The six commandos from the airship dropped to the ground. They spread out, five of them circling around me and James. One I recognized as Marina, but the sixth member of the party surprised me — Captain von Cravat. She glowered at me, but her attention shifted when more shots rang out.
`        One of the Liliana’s commandos collapsed. The three Wyranth soldiers who had left stood with their guns trained on us, using a nearby tree as cover. My rescuers returned fire, several shots hitting one of the Wyranth soldiers in the shoulder. He fell.
The other two Wyranth soldiers wasted no time. Major Anton moved the quickest, charging the circle of my rescuers. His companion fired his gun behind him to cover him, keeping Major Anton from getting shot. Before I could think to yelp, Major Anton had a knife to my throat.
Jon Del Arroz is the author of the Alliance Award nominated and top-10 Amazon bestselling Space Opera, Star Realms: Rescue Run, which as a debut novel sold more than three thousand copies. He is a well known blogger who has been featured on The Federalist, Mary Robinette Kowal’s My Favorite Bit, and the Hugo Award nominated Castalia House blog. Del Arroz came to prominence in early 2017, when he exposed a local science fiction convention for blackballing him from speaking over his identity, and as an independent journalist, breaking the story about Marvel Comics’ bad business practices.
        “I love everything about Steampunk—airships, gears, and swashbuckling fantasy. It excites me every time I think about it. I’ve been wanting to tell this story about a young girl who inherits an airship ever since I played Final Fantasy VI as a teenager. I’ve been cosplaying Steampunk for a long time, and I’m looking forward to showing readers this incredible fantasy world.” – Jon Del Arroz
