Still Life with Fantasy and Fruit #3, Steampunk Edition

Ah, goggles & dirigibles—is there anything more divine? Yes! Goggles and dirigibles and FRUIT! Behold the latest composition in my ongoing series:
Still Life with Fantasy and Fruit #3

Friends, this is simply delicious. Cherie Priest's Boneshaker, Gail Carriger's Changeless, and a delectable chorus of pears, grapes, and melons await your admiration!

Boneshaker doesn't simply have cool gadgets & goggles: it has zombies! Mmm, braaaaaains. (That is why the melons were absolutely necessary.) It's also printed with brown ink and set in a rather tasteful font. Thus far I'm enjoying it quite a bit. Changeless, aside from its great humor and attention to fashion, features werewolves and vampires and mummies, and if you're interested in picking it up, I'd start with Soulless first, which will get you hooked on a fantastic series. Carriger's third book is supposed to come out in September—I can't wait—and if I'm lucky, I'll get to interview up here on the Grove. 

Speaking of interviews, you can look forward to two this summer: Nicole Peeler on June 29, and Kelly Meding on July 27. Those are actually release dates for their second books, and if you'd like to be introduced to them ahead of time, Nicole's first book is called Tempest Rising and Kelly's is called Three Days to Dead.

Still plugging away at my third: 47K now on Hammered.
