Reviews
"Grabbed me from the opening explosion, and hurtled towards the conclusion far too quickly. When is the next one?!"
--Phil Foglio, co-creator of Girl Genius

"Just when steampunk has started to run out of steam, King of the Cracksmen arrives to inject a new level of inventiveness, action and sheer craziness into the genre."
-- K. W. Jeter, author of Infernal Devices and Fiendish Schemes

"Rousingly violent, funny, sometimes shockingly profane."
--Kirkus (starred review)

"[O'Flaherty] draws upon both the kind of academic background that makes scholars sit up and take notice, yet it's hard not to figure him for the cyberpunk love child of Agatha Christie and William Gibson. . . King of the Cracksmen is a multi-layered treat, and you're going to read it twice."
--Huffington Post

"There isn't much room to catch your metaphorical breath in King of the Cracksmen. The plot steams ahead like one of the Acme robotic police that are patrolling O'Flaherty's alternate United States."
--Summer Reading Project

"A lot of fun moments in this debut steampunk adventure."
--Library Journal
