AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This is history told like you've never heard it before, where steam is king, convicts are half-man, half-machine, dirty tricks are simply the way things are done, and almost anything at all can happen. Lose yourself in Ichabod Hart and the Lighthouse Mystery, the first instalment in James Roy's brilliant new Steampunk series. A new series from an award winning Australian children's writer.'

Notes

  • Dedication: For my brother Rob, who (when he sets his mind to it) makes more sense than almost anyone else I know, and who first gave me the idea for the Boosting Engine.
  • Epigraph: What is history but a fable agreed upon? - Napoleon Bonaparte.
  • Steampunk Note: This story combines several of the elements that work to constitute the steampunk style, notably an alternate history of advanced steam technology, and a focus on the imperial actions of the Britain in the Victorian age.
