The Clockwork Century is an alternate-history world setting created by Cherie: Here, it is 1880 (or thereabouts). The Civil War is still underway, drawn out by English interference, a different transportation infrastructure, and a powerful Republic of Texas that discovered oil at Spindletop some fifty years sooner than real life allowed. The competition of war has led to technological progress and horrors unimaginable, and many people have fled the combating states, hoping for an easier life out west. Some of them have found it. Some have found something else. Cherie Priest is the author of a dozen novels, including the award-winning Clockwork Century series from Tor (including Boneshaker) and the Cheshire Red books from Bantam Spectra. She lives in Seattle, Washington after spending most of her life in the Southern US.
