GraphicAudio® A Movie in Your Mind® is pleased to announce the release of Hugo award-winning CLOCKWORK CENTURY 1: BONESHAKER by Cherie Priest, in an astounding full-cast, dramatized version complete with sound effects and music to heighten the experience of this steampunk adventure set in an alternate Seattle, Washington filled with zombies, giants and monster, spies, a hero with googles and dirigibles.
Author Cherie Priest says, “The folks at GraphicAudio have tackled Boneshaker, and I couldn’t be happier! Their productions are outstanding in every way, and I’m delighted that they’ve chosen some of my stories to receive their signature brand of dramatic illumination.”
In BONESHAKER, during the early days of Civil War, rumors of gold in the frozen Klondike brought hordes of newcomers to the Pacific Northwest. Anxious to compete, Russian prospectors commission inventor Leviticus Blue to create a great machine that could mine through Alaska’s ice.
But on its first test run the Boneshaker went terribly awry, destroying several blocks of downtown Seattle and unearthing a subterranean vein of blight gas that turned anyone who breathed it into the living dead. Now it is sixteen years later, and a wall has been built to enclose the devastated and toxic city. Just beyond it lives Blue’s widow, Briar Wilkes. Life is hard with a ruined reputation and a teenaged boy to support, but she and Ezekiel are managing. Until Ezekiel undertakes a secret crusade to rewrite history.
GraphicAudio® has a history with other long-running successful sci-fi post-apocalyptic series and CLOCKWORK CENTURY adds a new dimension being a Steampunk adventure as well.
Colleen Delany who both directs the series and participates as a narrator says: “It has been so energizing to work on this series so far. ‘The Clockwork Century’ inhabits this awesome niche in fiction which touches on so many elements we love to work with — fantastical machines, zombies, and a darn good yarn. Plus, who doesn’t love to riff on possibilities of quantum tangents from the historical record? Cherie Priest’s writing is immensely fun to dive in to. I hope this series will bring even more fans to GraphicAudio®.”
To celebrate the release of BONESHAKER, GraphicAudio is giving away a free pair of Steampunk Aviator Googles with purchase.
