Congratulations are in order for Mark Hodder! His debut, THE STRANGE AFFAIR OF SPRING HEELED JACK (reviews | buy), won the 2010 Philip K. Dick Award, presented at Norwescon on April 22nd.
Here’s a shot of Mark’s US editor Lou Anders (at left) accepting on his behalf at the convention:
You can also read Mark and Tim Akers wax philosophical on steampunk at Babel Clash. If you’ve been intrigued by the idea of steampunk, but don’t know where to start, THE STRANGE AFFAIR OF SPRING HEELED JACK and THE HORNS OF RUIN (buy) are your required reading. Enjoy!
