Praise and Reviews:
"This is the real thing - a mad inventor, curious coins, murky London alleys and windblown Scottish Isles ... a wild and extravagant plot that turns up new mysteries with each succeeding page."- James P. Blaylock
"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
"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
