Steampunk fans, this is a total OMG-we-did-it-not-to-be-missed moment- Cherie Priest is coming to Fountain!
Everyone on staff at Fountain reads
steampunk and Priest is the undisputed Queen. Join us for an evening
with one of our favorite authors, even if you're only coming to place
bets on whether or not Doc spontaneously combusts from excitement!
Cherie Priest is the author of seven novels, most recently the
steampunk pulp adventures Boneshaker and Dreadnought, the first two stories in the Civil
War/alternate-history/steampunk Clockwork Century series. Boneshaker, which features zombies and
zeppelins, was nominated for both the Hugo Award and the Nebula Award;
it was a PNBA Award winner, winner of the Locus Award for Best
Science Fiction Novel, and has been translated into multiple languages.
Cherie has also written Fathom, the Eden Moore series
and novellas Dreadful Skin and Those Who
Went Remain There Still. Cherie's short stories and nonfiction
articles have appeared in such fine publications as Weird
Tales, Subterranean Magazine, Publishers Weekly, and the
Stoker-nominated anthology Aegri Somnia from Apex.
Though she spent most of her life in the southeast, she presently lives
in Seattle, Washington, with her husband and a fat black cat.
