Time's Arrow


Less than a month left for readers to vote on next installment of novel

Readers now have less than a month to vote on the direction the exciting new novel from Abaddon – Time’s Arrow.

In a unique experiment, readers themselves will get to decide on the fate of our hero Ulysses and where the Time’s Arrow story will take them.

Time’s Arrow is the latest book from the world’s longest continuously running Steampunk novel series, Pax Britannia. Set in a world where the Victorian age never ended, Pax Britannia is an insane world of high technology and rip-roaring adventure.

Time’s Arrow
puts the reader in charge and merges the best of print and online. Each instalment is published as an ebook and, at the end of each of the first two, readers will be able to vote on where THEY want the story to go. Once all three instalments have been published, they will be bound together into a print edition.

In the next thrilling installment of Time's Arrow, Black Swan, our hero – wanted by the French Police for murder – will battle his way across Paris, from the Louvre to Notre Dame, in order to prove his innocence. But how that happens is up to the reader to decide.

Votes are closing on December 11th:

“Pax Britannia is one of Abaddon’s most established series,” said Jonathan Oliver, editor-in-chief of Abaddon Books, “so it seemed like the natural choice for such a unique venture in publishing. This adventure is sure to reach out to new readers while giving established fans a say in the rich universe they have come to love.”

“I am passionate about the whole Steampunk milieu, and the world of Pax Britannia in particular, while my first forays into writing professionally were adventure gamebooks,” says Jonathan Green. “To marry elements of both is a fantastic opportunity for me as a writer and I, for one, can't wait to see how the story pans out!”
