Jack Wallen is a good friend of mine, and an all around great guy. He doesn't know I'm making this post, so shhhhhh! I was just suggesting KLOCKWERK KABARET to a friend when I found that the book's on sale for only a buck. Jack normally does horror (namely his series of zombie novels) but this is his first foray into steampunk. If you like authors with vast imaginations, I suggest you pick this one up. And if you like his style, I also recommend HELL'S MUSE. That book is like a skyscraper made of onions. The number of layers is jaw dropping.
