and windblown Scottish Isles … a wild and extravagant plot that
turns up new mysteries with each succeeding page.”
- James P. Blaylock

Praise and Reviews:

“What we see in Infernal Devices is not just the presager of what steampunk is, but what it could have been, a marvellously self-aware and inventive attack on the obsessions and degradations of the present.”
- Strange Horizons

“I’ll save you the trouble of reading this entire review by simply saying that K. W Jeter’s Infernal Devices is one of the best executed novels I’ve read in a long time, and I easily expect it to be one of my top reads for the year. I guarantee you will enjoy it.”
- The Little Red Reviewer

“K.W. Jeter has created quite a marvelous world in Infernal Devices. Sometimes rather weird and alien but always consistent.”
- The Traveler’s Steampunk Blog

“Suddenly I can see exactly what the whole fascination with Steampunk is all about. Jeter sets the Victorian scene here so skilfully, it’s absolutely perfect. I could easily have been reading a novel written in 1840. He’s impressively deft and accurate in his language of the time, making the novel completely believable, and yet he still writes in a style that is effortlessly readable. His Victorian London is dark, menacing, and compelling.”
- Fantasy Nibbles
