The Search for CERN by Faye Baker

SFC-CoverTallImagine a world where electricity is banned; not just in the home but in factories, offices and even hospitals.  How would we live without electric light, transport or communications?  This book is set a hundred years after that Great Event, where society has evolved into a kind of Victorian steam driven era.  A ‘second age of steam’ where even trying to understand the mythical electronic technology of the past is fraught with danger.

When a mysterious force destroys an experimental generator, it starts a chain of events that will see Professor Henry Coombs leave the safe confines of his university and embark on a dangerous, life changing journey.  Aided and guided by the enigmatic Lady Grey, a woman with an unfathomable past, he searches for answers that may only be found at Cern; the fabled centre of knowledge believed to have been devastated when electricity was banned.  On this quest Henry gathers together a group of friends, all committed to discover the truth about the Great Event.  It’s a quest that will take them across the Swiss Alps and expose them to the fatal threat of the Luddites.

The first chapter of The Search for CERN will appear on 21st November. Bookmark Steampunk Journal to keep up to date with the latest news, reviews, articles and previews.
