Book View Cafe News
Book View Cafe author Sarah Zettel has been nominated for the 2009 Sidewise Award for her novella, "The Persistence of Souls," from the collection THE SHADOW CONSPIRACY, Tales of the Steam Age, Vol. I, edited by Phyllis Irene Radford and Laura Anne Gilman.
THE SHADOW CONSPIRACY is an anthology of new fiction released in 2009 from Book View Press, the publishing arm of Book View Café, which is the Internet's largest professional authors cooperative. All the stories are set in a steampunk universe where the inventions of Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage changed the world and Mary Shelly's tales of creating life were far more than a ghost story. Available exclusively as an ebook from Book View Press, the collection is part of the ongoing drive of Book View Cafe's professional authors to bring their work directly to the rapidly growing numbers of online and on screen readers.
Following on the heels of the success of the first volume, Book View Café will be releasing a second volume later this year: THE SHADOW CONSPIRACY VOL. II.
THE SHADOW CONSPIRACY can be purchased from the Book View Café bookstore here.
