About the Author

Heather Albano is a storyteller, history geek, and lover of both time-travel tropes and re-imaginings of older stories. In addition to novels, she writes interactive fiction. She finds the line between the two getting fuzzier all the time.
Kenneth Schneyer forgot he wanted to be a writer for 25 years, until a 2006 home renovation forced him to find a way of retaining his sanity. Since then, he has sold stories to many science fiction and fantasy magazines and anthologies, several of which can be found on Amazon. In 2014, he received a Nebula nomination and was a finalist for the Sturgeon Memorial Award for his short story, "Selected Program Notes from the Retrospective Exhibition of Theresa Rosenberg Latimer." His first collection, The Law & the Heart, will be released in 2014. Ken attended the Clarion Writers Workshop at UCSD in 2009, and joined the Cambridge Science Fiction Workshop in 2010. Mostly he writes science fiction and fantasy, but he's been known to write crime stories, poetry, and anything else that strikes his fancy. He was a theater major at Wesleyan and briefly a semiprofessional actor before attending law school at the University of Michigan. He teaches legal studies and humanities at Johnson & Wales University, and has published numerous articles on the constitutive rhetoric of legal texts. Born in Detroit, he now lives in Rhode Island with one singer, one dancer, one actor, and something with fangs. He's interested in astronomy, history, politics, philosophy, feminist theory, presidential trivia, brain science, and practically everything else. He cooks better than most people you know, and you should not play either stud poker or Trivial Pursuit against him if money is involved

Reviews

"Waterloo and time travel are made for each other and Heather Albano has done a wonderful job of giving us a delightful cast of characters, tasked with stitching together the proper nineteenth century while fending off several monstrous alternatives. Propulsive adventure with historical insight." - Kim Stanley Robinson, Red Mars and 2312 "Austen, meet Waterloo. When a genteel 1815 heiress is given a strange watch, she time-travels to an 1885 England where history has gone hideously wrong. Now she has to change it back to what it "should" have been-and that never works out well, does it? A delicious supercharged blend of steampunk and the Napoleonic Wars, with a thrill on every page." - Sarah Smith, The Vanished Child "If Jane Austen and Mary Shelley had locked H. G. Wells in a dungeon and revised his wildest work, the result would have been something like this rollicking steampunk time-travel adventure that still manages to be a comedy of manners. Albano's delightful characters confront the not only monsters and killer robots, but their own divided loyalties between personal happiness and the fate of their country." - Ken Schneyer, The Law & the Heart
