More About the Author

Sign up for Stephen's offers and news of his new releases and bestsellers at ... goo.gl/5UHKJC (cut and paste this address into your browser).

Stephen Hunt writes fantasy and science fiction books (with a little steampunk on the side), crime, mystery and thriller novels, as well as horror books (the latter for teens and young adults).

Whatever genre he writes in, Stephen's trademark style is page-turning thrillers, action fiction, high imagination and dollops of sly humour - or possibly humor if you're from North America.

His scifi and crime books are published in English around the world by Gollancz/Hachette, HarperCollins, Tor Macmillan and Green Nebula. Foreign language editions of his novels are available from various publishers in China, Russia, Japan, Germany, Spain, Portugal, France and Brazil. Ebooks are available from Kindle as well as other online retailers, with a selection on Kindle Prime.

His current series are:

The Sliding Void books: an exciting space opera collection (currently a trilogy of novellas) featuring a crew of free traders and galactic misfits on board the starship Gravity Rose. If aliens, robots, androids, cyborgs, scifi romance and high adventure are your thing, this is the megapack for you.

The Vigil novels: a still-expanding boxset of horror thrillers suitable for a teen and young adult audience. When Eleanor Lythe is given as a sacrifice to semi-immortal vampires, the Vigil - the covert branch of the U.S. Secret Service formed to fight the forces of the supernatural - is on hand to cure her and protect her. But save her for just what sort of life?

The Agatha Witchley Mysteries: a spy-fi series of crime and action thriller books. These works feature the dotty and possibly insane retired super spy Agatha Witchley, who thinks she can save the world by communicating with the dead. When a dead billionaire turns up, she gets the chance to either prove her point or be sectioned for life.

The Far-called books: a daring fantasy and scifi series set on the giant world of Pellas. When Carter and his young friends are kidnapped by lizard-like slavers, both those who are taken and those who were left behind discover how far they have to go to stay alive.

The Jackelian books: a fantasy and science fiction series set in a dystopian future where humanity has degraded to a Victorian level of technology. This series - seven books - put space boosters under the steampunk genre. What is left of Britain, the Kingdom of Jackelia, is beset by enemies. Can Molly and the infamous u-boat pirate Commodore Black and their friends survive the intrigues and wars that result?

Stephen maintains his own web site over at www.StephenHunt.net and when he is not writing, he can be found indulging in such interests as cooking, gardening, collecting comic-books, and building his collection of science fiction and fantasy books.

Product Description

Review

Praise for ‘The Court of the Air’:

‘An inventive, ambitious work, full of wonders and marvels’ Lisa Tuttle, The Times

‘The characters are convincing and colourful, but the real achievement is the setting, a hellish take on Victorian London … the depth and complexity of Hunt’s vision makes it compulsive reading for all ages’ Guardian

‘Wonderfully assured … Hunt knows what his audience like and gives it to them with a sardonic wit and carefully developed tension’ Time Out

‘Rich and colourful … keeps you engrossed … a confident, audacious novel’ SFX

‘Like a magpie, Stephen Hunt has plucked colourful events from history and politics and used them for inspiration … Hunts tells his full-blooded tale with lip-smacking relish, revealing a vivid, often gruesome imagination … T’he Court of the Air’ brims with originality and, from the first, its chase-filled plot never lets up’ Starburst

Well 5 books on from 'Court of the Air' I am still coming back for more!

Call it new weird, call it Steampunk and call it entertainment at the outer limits!

Creatures from the deep, another war, vampires, U-boats, spies, imposters and police men. Jethro Daunt and his metalic protector Boxiron make a very welcome return here and find themselves entangled in all the above and so much more. Our old mate Blacky is pulled out of his sick bed for one more outing and of course curses his luck throughout every minute of it!

Hunt gives us his usual franetic, action packed thriller with also as usual a hatful of twists in the plot. Maybe I occassionally would like him to slim down the number of extras on set and let us dwell more on some of the colour characters but he does like a big finish and he does it so well!

In summary this book is architypal Hunt doing what he does probably better than anyone else in this genre right now. If you have enjoyed his other works you should find much to enjoy here.

Format: Paperback
This is the sixth and final volume (at least for now) in Hunt's Jackelian series, which began with The Court of the Air and he goes out in style - I'd rate this the best of the lot, except perhaps for the previous book, Jack Cloudie. It's organically part of the sequence and if you haven't read any of the others you will gain by reading them first - but there's enough background to read it standalone if you wish

Again, the Kingdom of Jackals is menaced by exiled Royalist plots and we're introduced to Dick Tull, agent of the State Protection Board, a footsoldier deployed to stop them. But there are wheels within wheels in the Royalist community - and indeed, cogs and axles beyond those (sorry, but the future-steampunk aesthetic of Hunt's writing is rather catching). Something deeper, and worse, than a few sad exiles is gathering its forces to menace not only Jackals but the world itself (readers of Hunt's earlier books may see a recurrent theme from a couple of the earlier volumes here).

Alongside Tull in opposing this threat are Charlotte Shades, a glamorous stage hypnotist, and several old friends from previous volumes including the self-pitying ex rebel, ex pirate and submarinist Commodore Black and Jethro Daunt, a former atheist priest who was defrocked because he began believing in gods. This book has everything - plenty of high adventure, courage, betrayal, hopeless situations turned around, a secret base inside an island volcano - and a note of sadness as the story ends.

I really hope that Hunt returns to this world soon.

Another winner from Stephen Hunt, new and well loved characters are taken on new adventures that maintain the excellent standard that began with The Court of the Air. Less of a Steampunk influence than previous titles but still a thoroughly enjoyable read.

I have read all the Jackelian series and found then to be very addictive and entertaining but sometimes exasperating. Is it me or are they becoming a bit 'samey'? Derring band of heroes plus one innocent in outrageous situations against ancient danger sound familiar? It should do it is the plot of all of them.

With such a rich back story I just hope if any more a written that we can get a bit more depth in what is a wonderful universe. Also for all its faults Jackelian society seems to rebuild itself pretty sharpish every time the latest inevitable ancient threat comes over the border and destroys Middlesteel. Maybe the town planners should see the next conflaguration as an opportunity to do a bit of good for the city!
