Hyperbole for Tales Of New Albion
"SPLENDID MAYHEM AND SUBLIME CHAOS"
"One of the best out there of any genre
"The amazing, often bonkers characters (cats too) and situations invented by Mr Callow and expertly brought to life by Mr Pilkington-Rhubarb are fabulous, fun-filled adventure stories. I look forward to hearing more."
"Words cannot convey to the uninitiated just how much magic there is overflowing out of every episode of Tales From New Albion. The world needs more of this kind of thing now, more than ever."
"A most excellent podcast with wonderful stories and great humor. I only wish there were more episodes."
"What can I say that has not already been expressed about Sir Rhubarb's sonorous stories? They are excellent! Excellent! Excellent! If you are looking for engaging steampunk fiction to listen to on you commute to the factories in your flying machine, this is certainly the one to hear. An excellent reading voice, and tales that range from humorous whimsy to dark and dread-filled, submit your ears and find out for yourself how wondrous this pod-broadcast is."
"As a podcast junkie who listens 50 to 60 hours a week while I work, I have given many podcasts a trial run. Most never last more than an episode or two. This one made the cut, and I actually look forward to new episodes."
"I've slowly found myself getting interested in the whole Steam Punk world, a cross of my 2 favourite things- inventions and the Victorian era, so I thought I'd give this book a go. Its terrific, I've only read the first 2 stories so far, but have loved it. The first story I can easily see as a short film."
"I have to be honest and say I am a newbie to steam punk, but what an introduction! After a recommendation from a friend, I bought these short stories and they are brilliant. Entertaining, funny and sometimes downright bonkers, they transport you to another world! I particularly enjoyed the High Cliffs Tea Rooms and the strong female characters. Buy it, enjoy it and try to catch a live reading too!"
"Daren Callow has delighted Steampunk audiences with his wonderful characters and stories at numerous events up and down the country - I am very excited about this collection of short Steampunk stories! Recommended."
"I have never known a set of Steampunk Short Stories by a debut author to be so professionally produced and perfectly illustrated. The writing has clearly been a labour of love, and I can honestly say I've never read a better Steampunk Story in my life. Stupendous."
"It was a great story. Made even better by your superb delivery. I thoroughly enjoyed it."
"They are all great fun and I found myself speed-reading them as I wanted to find out what was going to happen!"
"This is a terrific set of stories. New Albion is an engaging and riveting world, brought vividly to life by complex characters and thrilling plots. The twists and turns kept me enthralled. More please of the gutsy heroines, sparkling dialogue and pacy stories."
