Next month, PS Publishing is due to publish the new novel from James P. Blaylock, PENNIES FROM HEAVEN! Available as a signed hardcover (limited to 200 copies), or a trade paperback edition, here’s the synopsis…
With a 100-year storm threatening the southern California coast, Jane Larkin is approached by a strange, audacious woman who wants to invest much-needed money in Jane’s Old Orange Co-op. Meanwhile Jane’s husband Jerry discovers an ancient excavation beneath the Larkin home. On that ominous morning in autumn, shadows descend over the deceptively quiet neighborhoods of Old Orange, ushering in a flood of chaos, terror, and murder.
Blaylock is one of the fathers of the steampunk genre, and has published a considerable number of acclaimed novels and short stories.
His Langdon St. Ives series is published by Titan Books in the UK and North America: HOMUNCULUS, LORD KELVIN’S MACHINE, THE AYLESFORD SKULL, and BENEATH LONDON.
