Review from Rebecca Sky, literary reviewer for the Punkettes
“Need help steaming up your Summer? The other day I made myself a cup of tea and sat down to read the THIRTY DAYS LATER anthology put on by Thinking Ink Press. I wasn’t expecting the soirée of steam/clock infusion. I soon found my tea turning cold and me turning the next page. Thirty Days Later is full of interesting diverse stories that will appeal to a wide variety of readers with sightings of Royals, ghosts, dragons, Japanese folklore, spies, and even a Sasquatch(?!). While the packaging didn’t capture my attention, the high caliber creative content did. From Hugo award winning author to fresh new voices, this is one collection steampunk enthusiast should not judge by the cover.”

Available in paperback where all books are sold, and as an ebook from all major booksellers.
