The authors of the steampunk epic Boilerplate release a companion book: Frank Reade: Adventures

The creative team of Anina Bennett and Paul Guinan follow up their epic steampunk saga Boilerplate: History's Mechanical Marvel with the companion book Frank Reade: Adventures in the Age of Invention.  Combining the artwork and storylines from forgotten dime novels with real events of the Victorian era, Anina and Paul bring the swashbuckling character of Frank Reade back to life, warts and all.  As in Boilerplate, meticulously sculpted miniature models find their way into the "archival images" of Frank Reade, leading readers to wonder where reality ends and fiction begins.

Anina and Paul will be appearing around Portland throughout the month of February, along with local costumers and scale models of the vehicles.  More information will be available at
