New author Jarod D. Crews writes about virtue, ardent romance, and greed in the new Steampunk infused Western, Liberation at 50 Paces. The story plays out in an old West mining town, which is the first rung on the ladder powering his burgeoning society of steam, iron, brass, and aether.
Crews states, “I’ve always had a soft spot for the Victorian and Edwardian vernacular and dress, as well as the general urbanity of the time period. I’ve tried to instill my characters with these attributes, while drenching the world around them in a hearty dose of industry and invention -- something very indicative of the Steampunk genre I love.“
His skills with period diction, geo-location imagery, and the rich cast of characters make this story both rollicking and enjoyable.
“Hanson’s intrinsic dilemma over slavery is the juxtaposition that frames the story,” Crews says. “His stumbling upon first-love along the way just thickens the steam, so to speak.”
Slavery in the mines and the trading of flesh divide the characters into the affected and the covetous. With airships -- or aeroships, as Jarod has dubbed them -- for the wealthy, lust, love, and gunfights in the old West, this novelette has all the classic elements readers will love.
Liberation at 50 Paces, is a prequel to the pending quartet, The Gnostic Chronicles. Jarod D. Crews lives in Richmond, Virginia, where he elates in reading any notable literature and losing himself in the craft of writing.
