About the Author
M. K. Hobson's short fiction has appeared in Realms of Fantasy, Fantasy & Science Fiction, Sci Fiction, Strange Horizons, Interzone, Postscripts, and many other publications. She lives in the first city in the United States incorporated west of the Rockies and fancies herself a historian, bon vivant, and raconteur. Her husband, daughter, yellow Lab, and moggy cats generally humor her. The Native Star is her first novel.
"The Native Star is engaging, atmospheric, and lovely. I was quite taken by the concept of an Old West built on a foundation of magic and zombie slave labor. Oh, and giant raccoons. Bring on the coons! And how spectacular is the name Dreadnought Stanton? This book utterly absorbed me from start to finish--these days you have no idea how rare that is. You have something special in your hands--no pun intended." --Gail Carriger, New York Times bestelling author of Soulless

"M. K. Hobson dazzles! The Native Star is an awesome mash-up of magic and steam-age technology--call it witchpunk. This debut novel puts a new shine on the Gilded Age." --C. C. Finlay

"Splendid! In The Native Star, M. K. Hobson gives us a Reconstruction-era America, beautifully drawn and filled with the energy of a young nation--and magic! Her heroine, Emily Edwards, is outspoken, rash, loving, and true; a delight to spend time with. Could there be a sequel, please?" --Madeleine Robins
