Burton & Swinburne in The Strange Affair of Spring-Heeled Jack

I have always been a big fan of Pyr Books. I can pretty much be assured that anything with the Pyr logo is going to be something I’ll like,  and the cover artwork is often breathtaking.

This latest book takes the cake. This is one of the most compelling book covers I have seen in a long time. And a cover blurb from Michael Moorcock does not hurt at all. I am getting this as soon as I can.

“This is an exhilarating romp through a witty combination of nineteenth-century English fact and fiction. Mark Hodder definitely knows his stuff and has given us steam opera at its finest…. A great, increasingly complex, plot, some fine characters, and invention that never flags! It gets better and better, offering clues to some of Victorian London’s strangest mysteries. This is the best debut novel I have read in ages.” —Michael Moorcock
