Welcome back! I have some news from Bonsart Bokel, a fellow author and steampunk fan. His upcoming book, titled Bound for the Styx, is coming out this Spring. For the past couple of years, he’s been working on The Association of Ishtar, a steampunk and cosmic fantasy series. You can learn more about Bonsart on his YouTube channel, Radio Retrofuture, where he discusses various types of speculative fiction, including steampunk, cyberpunk, dieselpunk, etc. Bound for the Styx also has a Kickstarter page. Check out more details about Bonsart’s work below.
Quotes from the Literary World
“A truly delicious, swirling gothic steampunk story in a world that feels so three-dimensional that you feel like you could walk through the nearest door and step into it."
-George Penney, Bohemiana podcast, author of OverLondon
“As much as I enjoyed the first novel, Bound for the Styx is twice as good. It’s so original and impressive.”
- Jeanne Wilkins, editor of HCS Publishing
From the Author- Bonsart Bokel
“These are the chronicles of Igraine Mortuba’s adventures in Hades: an inter-dimensional space station drifting inside the void between worlds. Once she makes her way through the Halls of Hades, she ends up in Arkology. A cobbled-together community of refugees who, after losing their respective worlds to catastrophe, are delivered to this subterranean realm by an entity known as the White Airship. Now they must survive inside the overgrown ruins of Hades, which is home to every imaginable horror known to the multiverse. Igraine Mortuba came to this place to be healed, after which she would be free to continue her life of idleness. But before she’s offered a cure, she must prove herself to a mysterious benefactor. First, she must survive the challenging lifestyle of Arkology’s denizens, lest she’d end up in the Styx like all others who perish in this place. As Igraine gets initiated in the way of the scavs, she learns about the many opportunities the Capitol of the Multiverse has to offer. Can Igraine prove herself to a society of inter-dimensional exiles while navigating the machinations of Arkology’s Founder? Find out in Bound for the Styx.”
That’s all for today! I’m looking forward to promoting more work from indie authors. Take a look at Bonsart’s Kickstarter page and Radio Retrofuture on YouTube if you want to support his projects. Leave your thoughts in the comment section. Take care of yourselves, have fun, and I’ll see you again next week.
