My pen has been racing across the parchment as the steam-trams thunder through Otherland Station like ornate mechanical elephants. Upon their graceful backs, I took another journey to that far-flung place, ancient Alexandria, bringing back tales of Heron the Inventor. My gear is damp and salt-crusted, but the journey was worth it. I hope the tale will inspire you as much as it did me.
The sixth novel of the Alexandrian Saga, Voyage of Alexandria, is available for your consumption through your favorite book acquisition contraption. As a special nod to my dear friends, who still labor to correspond with me despite the distractions of modern life, I will be offering the newest adventures of Heron of Alexandria for a single Susan B. Anthony (or $0.99 in current terms) on the Twenty-Fourth of June, current year, of course. The first novel in the series will also be available at the special rate on that day, if these adventures haven’t caught your fancy before.
For thousands of years, myths have told the stories of the beasts at the edge of civilization: krakens, cyclops, even the fearsome dragon.
Now, Heron of Alexandria must confront those myths aboard Hoth the Black’s iron ship, the Jörmungandr, as they flee the remnants of the Roman navy bent on revenge. As she struggles to recover from her horrific injuries, and the repercussions of what happened in the Roman Senate, she must decide – once and forever – what she truly believes in.
Your friend and intrepid traveler,
Thomas K. Carpenter
