More About the Author

Grig "Punkie" Larson (b. 1968) was born in Cyprus on British soil, the only son of a pair of Swedish-American descendants. He grew up in Northern Virginia, finding fandom through D&D, FanTek, and Rocky Horror. He works as a Linux systems administrator by day, and by night he's masked vigila--er... uh, an author, open source advocate, and works for the DC Rollergirls. Somehow he fooled enough people to be the president of Katsucon Entertainment for the last 3 years, where his staff runs a 15,000 attendee anime convention. He also works for Onezumi Entertainment for Intervention and Regeneration Who. There's no shame in his game.

A staple in VA/DC/MD science fiction and anime fandom since the 1980s, he's been a panelist, moderator, emcee, actor, sketch writer, convention adviser, narrator, and the kind of sub-fame that keeps people from asking, "Hey, how'd HE get in here?" (Answer: We still don't know, but since he's already here, why not?) He's done everything from chair a convention to being the guy who vacuums the staff suite. In no particular order. (Partially untrue, there's some kind of order, but it usually involves some ritual chanting and Jelly Babies for sacrifice...)

In 1993, his first book, "The Saga of Punk Walrus," became a cult classic. Since then he's been published in Gateways, several short story anthologies, and written several sketches and spoofs for various acting venues. "Trolley," was his first published steampunk/horror novel in 2011. You can often see him at Balticon, Katsucon, Anime Mid Atlantic, and DC Rollergirl home bouts. He is a Redditor and also seen posting on the Ars Technica forums under "punkwalrus."

"Space B!tch" is his first dark comedy sci-fi, published in 2015.

If you read a lot of science fiction and fantasy books like I do, you'll probably reach a point where many of the books start to blend together, as a certain 'sameness' among all the stories comes through.

Trolley exhibited none of that 'sameness'. The author created a detailed and grand world that Heather, the main character, lives in, with enough details to let you easily envision and understand this world, but not so many details that the story bogs down. Indeed the story moves along so well that I found myself staying up late because I did not want to stop reading. The story moves along naturally, but ended up going in a direction that was completely and delightfully a surprise to me.

I bought the Kindle edition of the book, and the Kindle formatting was very well done; by which I mean you never noticed it, as there were no errors or glitches (which are present in far too many other books you can get for your Kindle, in my opinion).

I hope the author revisits this world in future books.

Thank you so much for an amazing adventure! Strong female characters, an amazingly detailed world of gears, danger and twists and turns around every corner. A book that I would suggest to anyone!

Like some of the other reviewers I have read a lot of science fiction and fantasy. This is my first steam punk novel and I loved it! I had a hard time putting it down because I never knew what was coming next. I loved that the story line didn't follow a common formula like some of the novels I have read. It had me on the "edge of my seat" until the very end. The characters are well thought out and interesting. The twists and turns will keep you glued to the page (or Kindle) until the very end. I cannot wait to read more from this author. Really. I cannot wait...when is your next book coming out?

I love reading, and since I read quickly tend to burn through books quite fast. With so many independent authors out there nowadays, I get to read a lot of different styles. Mr Larson's style of writing is refreshing. The characters feel well developed, the story is interesting and keeps you guessing a little as you go, and it's hard to argue with Steampunk-ish anything! Even that, though, is secondary to the story itself, as it should be.

So, in short, buy this book. Even if you're not a huge Steampunk fan, you're likely to find it engaging and entertaining. Hopefully we'll get more books down the road.
