More on the Constantine Affliction

My alter-ego T. Aaron Payton talks about The Constantine Affliction over at The Night Bazaar, and then he talks about it some more.

Y’all know I pretty much never post reviews anymore, but I did like these lines from one of the Amazon.com reviews (all 5-star so far; I’m enjoying that while it lasts):

What begins as a murder mystery in an odd steam punk London opens up into a fantastic world of Science Gone Wrong, and a love story too! This book has everything, Prostitutes, Robot Women, Tentacle Monsters, Transgender Disease, Lightning Swords, and a love sick Frankenstein.

I cannot dispute any of those characterizations. (Well, I wouldn’t call it a “transgender disease” really, and it’s more like Frankenstein’s monster, but I know what the reviewer means, and can’t dispute the flair of phrasing.)

    Dear Tim,

    I loved The Constantine Affliction. It was sad to get to the last page. Needless to say, I am hoping this is the start of series. Please tell me there will be more of Pimm, Skye, and Freddie.

    I’m so glad! As for whether there will be more, well, maybe. I’d like to write more about them. Just have to see if a publisher is willing to pay me to do so. :)

    Would it help if I promise to give the publisher money? Another delightful tale would be worth paying for…

    I would love to see more Pimm and Skye and all the fun and madness I’ve listened to several time. A very fine story, Sir, thank you!
