Editorial Reviews

Review

"'Caesar's Children' [is] a suave, knowing mash-up of Ignatius Donnelly, Albert Robida, Jules Verne, Jack London and H. G. Wells... Given its Pluritopian pluralities, it holds together as a gripping narrative, proto SFnal, full of eye-popping and mind-popping details."
--David Herter, author of Evening's Empire and Ceres Storm

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read Caesar's Children by Christopher Paul Carey without knowing anything about the story or its inspiration. It stands alone as a very interesting Steampunk adventure without having to worry about any back story or original source material. For those that are interested though a timeline of events is included in the final pages. The timeline provides links to various works by H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, Ignatious Donnelly, David Herter, Albert Robida, Mary E. Bradley Lane, Jonathan Swift, Sir Thomas More and even Plato.

I think this one-off story shows a lot of potential for this setting of Pluritopia. Carey describes Pluritopia as an alternate universe where 19th Century utopian and dystopian literary characters coexist. The timeline included at the end of the story is just begging for more additions.

If you are a fan of Steampunk, Science Fiction, Fantasy or fans of the writers whose works helped inspire this story I would highly recommend reading Caesar's Children. I can also recommend it for Philip Jose Farmer's Wold Newton fans due to the crossover and world building elements present in the story. For Farmer fans, I would compare this story to Farmer's the The Other Log of Phileas Fogg (Wold Newton), an alternate take on the Jules Verne classic Around the World in 80 Days. Carey is best known for his contributions to Farmer's Ancient Khokarsa Cycle, but like Farmer he proves he can pen a great tribute to French literature as well. Carey thrives in this setting, his descriptions during the final scenes of the story are especially vivid. At only .99 this is a great buy.
