Welcome to Steampunk Revelry! Dance with us. Have a glass of sherry.

Today we celebrate Dean F. Wilson’s new release, Lifemaker, the second book in his The Great Iron War series. It follows the adventures of amulet smuggler Jacob, who is caught between two warring factions in the steam-powered world of Altadas.



The Regime is on the hunt, forcing the Resistance to take refuge aboard the Lifemaker, an advanced submarine that houses a special cargo: a handful of women who can still give birth to human children.

To evade the Regime’s own submersibles, all parties must work together, but tensions are high, and not everyone on board is looking out for the greater good.

As they descend into the deeps, they quickly learn that not all monsters work for the Regime.


In the black abyss, there were creatures that even demons feared. No one knew what they looked like, not even themselves, for they were blind, and though many were scavengers, seizing and consuming any stray bits of food that had sunk down from the higher levels, there were predators too, just waiting for larger prey.

As the inhabitants of the Lifemaker dusted themselves off from their descent, and as the crew worked to get it back afloat, a great sea serpent, ten times the length of the submarine, slithered through the silt, feeling its way towards whatever had caused such a tremendous shudder on the ocean bed.

The abyss was awake, and its entire population was stirring, some to flee, some to investigate, but many, all too many, to feed. Fishes with fangs came. Bulbous bloated creatures came. Shelled monsters with massive jaws came. Things that defied description came. Every form or shape that stalked the nightmares of a child lurked there in the deep, and they all descended on the Lifemaker, no eyes to see, but many mouths to taste.
