George Mann releases Ghosts of Manhattan

Those jolly fellows at Titan Publications have announced a new book from George Mann. Ghosts of Manhattan is set in a not-too-distant steampunk future. The roaring ’20’s are in full swing except the world is still full of steam and airships, mobsters and World War I heroes.
I’ve requested a review copy as it looks thrilling. If you’d like to review the book on behalf of Steampunk Journal, get in touch for full details.

1926, New York. Jazz. Flappers. Prohibition. It’s the roaring twenties but not as history remembers it. Coal-powered cars line the streets of Manhattan, while zeppelins and biplanes occupy the skies. And the US is locked in a bitter cold war with a British Empire that still covers half of the globe. 

This is the alternate vision of the most opulent era of New York. It’s a darker version of history. One steeped in fantastical steampunk innovations and a dark undercurrent of supernatural treachery. Organized crime rules the streets, with speakeasies on every corner. And while a run-down police force battles mobsters and their protection rackets, the “Lost Generation” is drinking away the recent nightmares of the World War. It’s a society on the brink of destruction, where any low level crook could be the tipping balance into lawlessness and disorder.

It’s a time in need of a hero.
It’s a time in need of The Ghost.

Mann’s sinister take on this period of history is absolutely fascinating. With beautiful prose and a thrilling plot, this novel will appeal to a wide range of audiences as well as his fans.
