A Country of Ghosts

A Country of Ghosts“This is a fierce, intelligent, hopeful book—a fantasy (of sorts) of unusual seriousness, humanity, and wit.”
—Felix Gilman, author of The Half-Made World

“This gritty evocative novel explores the question of what an anarchist community can do to resist the assaults that are sure to come if any such social formation were to exist. Yet more important still is that this is an exciting and mysterious novel, a story of war and love in some fictional mountainous country with echoes of nineteenth century Latin America, eastern Europe, central Asia; by the time you’re done you feel you’ve gotten a glimpse into a forgotten part of our history that is nevertheless very real.”
—Kim Stanley Robinson, author of the Mars trilogy

Gulliver’s Travels meets The Dispossessed. It’s a wild ride, and you don’t want to miss it.”

What Lies Beneath the Clock Tower: Being an Adventure of Your Own Choosing

What Lies Beneath the Clock Tower: Being An Adventure of Your Own Choosing
“In What Lies Beneath the Clock Tower, the estimable Margaret Killjoy takes a story-form usually associated with younger readers and infuses it with decadence and absinthe along with delirious and dissolute fantasy. If you’re choosing your own adventure, I strongly recommend you make it this one.”
—Alan Moore, author of Watchmen

“Reading What Lies Beneath the Clock Tower is a bit like play­ing Dungeons & Dragons with a bunch of grad students while Monty Python’s Flying Circus marathons in the background. It offers the pleasure of watching someone very smart do some­ thing very silly, and do it with style and skill. You will laugh­ and while you laugh this trickster author will unleash goblins in your mind to ferment a cognitive revolution.”
—William Alexander, for Rain Taxi

My interactive novel of steampunk, goblins, and anti-colonial revolution. Available from Combustion Books or as an ebook on Amazon.
