Escaping the workhouse was only the beginning of Alan Shaw’s adventures. For an orphan growing up on the streets of Victorian London, staying alive is a daily battle filled with choices a child should never have to make. Then Alan is offered more money than he can imagine; enough to take him to the new world and a new life. He only has to do one thing first – something that could bring the British Empire to a grinding halt.

In a series of adventures that take him from sea to sky, from Brighton to Bombay, Alan grows up in a steam-driven era where Automatons walk the streets of London and dirigibles master the air. Pitted against mad alchemists, tentacled submersibles, bomb-wielding saboteurs and the apocalyptic cult of the Ordo Fenris, Alan has his work cut out for him.

With a past as dark as his, who knows what Alan might grow up to be?

The Adventures of Alan Shaw is an epic Steampunk adventure spanning five incredible tales, from the author of Gothic Steampunk fable Greaveburn.

Craig Hallam

Beginning his career with short stories in 2008, Craig’s tales have graced the pages of the British Fantasy Society, Misanthrope Press, Pill Hill Press, and Murky Depths. He has managed to avoid winning a single award in this whole time and has decided to take that as an accolade in itself, whenever the tears stop falling.

He likes to think that his books are about real people who live in impossible worlds. Whether his books are Fantasy, Horror, Steampunk, or Sci-fi, Craig loves to go wherever the stories may take him.

He hopes to see you hovering above one of his pages in the near future… and that he can eventually stop referring to himself in the third person.
