Expedition to the Mountains of the Moon (2012)
language
English
3.8 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: More gripping and entertaining alternate history hi-jinks, which I enjoyed every bit as much as the previous two. I was expecting a clear resolution at the end of this one, but the author kept me guessing to the last page and now I don't know whether to expect another book in th...
The Return of the Discontinued Man (2014)

review 1: More like 3.75 stars.... For me, this Burton & Swinburne steampunk series is running out of steam. Still a good read but in no way as harrowing or intense on the adventure/action front. A more light hearted tale this one, in some ways. The time travel/parallel universe stuff need...
The Secret of Abdu El-Yezdi (2013)
language
English
3.95 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Another fun time-travel adventure in another alternate time-line where Burton hasn't met Swinburne yet and competing men from the future are trying to manipulate events to their advantage. The titular Abdu El Yezdi had been secretly guiding British technological advances and for...
The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack (2010)
language
English

review 1: Fast-paced action-packed Victorian steampunk stuffed full of historical figures, London fog, and weird cool technologies. Sometimes, that's just what you need. Through in some parallel universes and insanity for fun. Burton was exactly the kind of main character you'd expect--a w...
The Curious Case of the Clockwork Man (2011)
language
English

review 1: Burton & Swinburne in The Curious Case of the Clockwork Man is the second novel in the Burton & Swinburne series. The first book, The Strange Affair of Spring-Heeled Jack, was incredible and this second one was far from a disappointment either. I am in love with this steampunk se...
Wyprawa w Góry Księżycowe (2013)
language
English
3.8 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Best of the three, stylistically. No longer breathlessly telling the reader about clever steampunk set-pieces incidental to the story, he has matured into a more graceful tone and taken on a deeper, more human story (well, mostly human). He leads the reader through it with quite ...
A Red Sun Also Rises (2012)
language
English

review 1: Aiden is a young minister, a quiet bookish man who becomes involved in an adventure beyond belief when he goes to a missionary post. Not only is he faced with monsters and freakish creatures, but he is transported to another world. By his side is the crippled and disfigured Clari...
Dziwna sprawa Skaczącego Jacka (2012)

English

review 1: I first heard of Sir Richard Francis Burton in Philip Jose Farmer's Sci-Fi "Riverworld" series. I have since read numerous biographies about Sir Richard as well as books by him; so it is strange to come full circle and encounter him in another science fiction series. I wasn't tha...

review 1: Absolutely loved it! Steam punk at its best! I was looking for something that was in some way similar to Douglas Adams. I wanted something humourous and entertaining. This definitely fit the bill and more. It was unpredictable and really interesting. The characters are well...
Zdumiewająca sprawa Nakręcanego Człowieka (2011)

English

review 1: Given that I'm currently trying to write a steampunk novel, this seemed like an appropriate piece of research, and it's probably been the most enjoyable research I've conducted for quite a while. The second instalment in the Burton & Swinburne series, The Curious Case of the Cloc...
