Alice meets Clockwork Girl


Alice has come across a girl on her way to Whatsitland - land of steampunk.

The Clockwork Girl
by Sean O'Reilly

Description from the amazon:
The Tinkerer is a mad scientist convinced that mechanical technology is a stable and precise science and is more important than all of the other sciences.

Metal twists and bends, gears, axles, and ratchets work in unison giving life to a conscious machine - The Astonishing Clockwork Girl!

The Grafter believes that the natural uncontainable power of biology should be revered against all other sciences. Assembling a body from parts of exhumed corpses, organs, skin, and limbs are stitched together to create the son that he could not have - The Amazing Mutant Boy!

Life is beautiful.

The Astonishing Clockwork Girl and the Amazing Mutant Boy begin to take their first steps into this world, learning about individual existence, freedom, and choice.

But a true understanding of who they are can't begin until they meet...

fyi: Kindle version is currently $4.95
