The Gaslight Dogs by Karin Lowachee

GaslightDogsMy first entry in the new Under the Radar column at Tor.com went up this morning, focusing on the excellent novel The Gaslight Dogs by Karin Lowachee.

An excerpt:

The Gaslight Dogs packs an enormous amount of depth into barely 340 pages. The novel’s characters, powerful prose and well-realized world are stunning. The atmosphere, for want of a better word, is simply unique: you can see the historical parallels, but by adding fantasy elements and, more importantly, offering different perspectives, Lowachee does much more than just retell history. The novel’s conclusion is poignant and, upon rereading, just open-ended enough to make me really, really annoyed that we never got to see a sequel.

Please read the entire article (including a much more detailed review) here at Tor.com.

  1. I loved the review. I have read other books by Karin Lowachee but not this one. Since I know it is the first of an unfinished trilogy I probably won’t put it on my wish list.
