Infernal Devices (2016)

This is a first edition of Infernal Devices, which is a steampunk novel published in 1987 by K.W. Jeter. While Jeter did not write the first steampunk novel, he is credited with coining the term in a letter to Locus magazine:

“Personally, I think Victorian fantasies are going to be the next big thing, as long as we can come up with a fitting collective term for [its writers]. Something based on the appropriate technology of the era; like ‘steam-punks’, perhaps.” — K.W. Jeter

This binding is my tribute both to the genre and to Jeter.
