To my delight, I’ve been asked to contribute to an anthology of steampunk stories ‘inspired by’ classics of literature. My choice is Wilkie Collins – who is up there with Dickens as the inventor of the detective story, and was one of the greatest writers of the Victorian age. Other contributors include Adam Roberts, Lavie Tidhar and Kim Lakin-Smith.
Scott has more details here.
That sorts out my Christmas reading…It’s Woman in White for me, and maybe even The Moonstone, two of Wilkie’s best books.
