Description from the amazon:
The west isn't only wild. Sometimes it's just plain strange.

When the airship The Merry Widow arrives in Professor Von Maxwell's city of gruff coal miners for fuel, the lonely men of Ironstation scramble to impress the all female crew.

But the crew isn’t in the mood for romance. On the run from a vicious bordello Madam, the ladies of The Merry Widow are recovering from a run-in with a pack of wild natives. Not to mention that their ship houses the world’s greatest scientific breakthrough since the invention of the airbag…a genuine clockwork man that goes by the name of Atom Loquacious.

The west just got a bit weirder in this tale of clockwork romance and sky-bound adventure.

Series:
Clockworks and Corsets - my review
Pistons and Pistols

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): Ironstation
Had a blast with this female airship pirate crew again. The story continues from Clockworks and Corsets, although both ebooks work just fine as stand-alone stories.

I get a kick out of the colorful characters, dialogue, action and setting from this tale.

And who wouldn't like to meet someone with the name of Atom Loquacious?
