And here's another Abaddon omnibus and this one is going straight on my Christmas list. The Ulysses Quicksilver Omnibus collects three of Jonathan Green's Pax Brittania novels - Unnatural History, Leviathan Rising and Human Nature. Madcap steampunk adventures for all the family!
"In the closing years of the 20th century the British Empire's rule is still going strong. Queen Victoria is about to celebrate her 160th birthday, kept alive by advanced steam technology. London is a fantastical sprawling metropolis where dirigibles roam the skies, robot bobbies enforce the law and dinosaurs are on display in London zoo. Welcome to Magna Britannia, a steam driven world full of fantastical creations and shady villains. Here dashing dandies and mustachioed villains battle for supremacy while below the city strange things stir in the flooded tunnels of the old London Underground."
