More information at Goodreads (scroll down to the "WIN A COPY OF THIS BOOK" section to enter one of the giveaways being run on a rolling basis for the next seven weeks).

The paperback is available for pre-order now at Amazon (Canada; Germany; France; Italy; Spain; USA; UK) and Barnes & Noble (USA), and the ebook at Amazon (AU, BR, CA, DE, ES, FR, IN, IT, JP, MX, NL, UK, US) and Kobo/BOL/FNAC (France, Japan, The Netherlands, USA).

I'd be delighted to provide a free review e-copy (mobi, epub, or pdf) to any Mefite who undertakes to write an Amazon or Goodreads review (even a star rating and a one-sentence summary of your reaction counts)! Just use MeFi Mail to send me your email and preferred format.

Oh, this is a fascinating genre of which I'd never heard before.
I would very much like an epub version so I can add it to my queue (right after this one).

I like the idea of having all my reading material derived from MeFi Projects.

I will of course write detailed reviews. :)
(and will memail you all this too)

Also I like the extension of the convention that says that we can describe the set and setting of a speculative fiction story by appending Punk to the dominant power source.

SteamPunk
DieselPunk
SolarPunk

Is there also WindPunk (for pirate sci fi?)
FusionPunk?
FissionPunk (For alt 1950's spec scifi?)
