Outstanding work. very good pace enjoyable but intricate read. The authors spent seven years on this and it shows. Great twist in the construction of this novel. Good read

When you want your Victorian steampunk infused anachronistic with the precursors to cyberware, by two of the preeminent minds of Science Fiction.

Founding document of the Steampunk movement, which has produced nothing comparable since. Paleontologist hero and a Burgess Shale cameo.
