THIS IS SHAPING UP TO BE A GOOD DAY FOR REALLY BAD IDEAS
Umm…okay…the synopsis reads…
“Energy catastrophe has struck worldwide! Massive oil spills, nuclear meltdowns and more leave us desperate for viable energy sources to rebuild global society and technology. Inspired by a little tea party, Sarah Palin hits upon the answer: steam power! She begins the “Steam Initiative”, touting geothermal energy as the cure for what ails ya. The heads of Big Oil and Nuclear Power are less than happy with this trend, and they send their agents to do in the Rogue Republican. Luckily, she comes prepared with a set of steam-powered armor! (Standard equipment, don’cha know.)”
I suppose this book is perversely collectable but I really can’t imagine anyone seriously reading the damn thing. It could, however, maybe mark the last gasp near-demise of steampunk as a worked out genre.
