Michael Panush has been a central figure in our stable of authors since shortly after our humble (but rather quite awesome) publishing house’s inception.
His Stein & Candle Detective Agency series, for example, is a flash back to classic 1920s literature, both in its ‘pulp fiction’ style and its popularity as free, serialized fiction on our website before being released as a fully-fledged novel.
June 13th sees this promising young author add another series to the Curiosity Quills Press portfolio with Dinosaur Jazz (The Jurassic Club, Vol. 1).
Our hero is Sir Edwin Crowe, son of one of the world’s last Gentleman Adventurers. Walking in the footsteps of his Victorian explorer father – the man who discovered the prehistoric paradise known as Acheron Island – it’s up to Crowe to protect these prehistoric lands from the dastardly American industrialist, Selwyn Slade, and his nefarious schemes.
Known for ambitious genre blends and quirky sci-fi, Curiosity Quills Press defies convention yet again. Readers can expect a blend of alternate history, steampunk, and adventure noir. Lovers of Panush’s pulpy writing style will find that familiar tone once more, this time painting a very new world – filled with ferocious, man-eating dinosaurs, savage Ape Man tribes, Jazz Age gangsters, zeppelins, pirates, and strange ruins from a lost civilization.
Marketing director Lisa Gus had this to say:
Dinosaur Jazz will be released in print and on all major eBook devices on the 13th of June, and is available for reviewers on NetGalley.
