The Magnetron Chronicles, Volume 1
    
    Phineas Magnetron is an eccentric Nineteenth Century inventor blessed with a strange gift he doesn't completely understand. As a former soldier and current member of the Hogalum Society, an inscrutable secret organization of crime fighting adventurers, Phineas is no stranger to peril and derring-do. But when the Society founder dies, Phineas embarks on a daring and improbable caper to bring the good doctor's greatest dream to fruition posthumously. In the process, he not only horrifies his Society brothers, but unearths a haunting and compelling mystery. 
    
    About The Magnetron Chronicles: 
    
    The Magnetron Chronicles is a serialized steampunk tale told in the grandiose style of Jules Verne, but with satirical Twainian wit.  Chapter by chapter, the story builds as quirky new characters join the fray and perplexing new mysteries and situations arise.  Traveling the globe, Phineas Magnetron and his Hogalum Society  encounter suspicious policemen, mentally ill criminals, wood-craving aliens, a witch doctor, a mad oracle, and a cross-dressing female matador, among many others.  However, this "steam dream team" always manages to triumph over impossible odds and improbable obstacles as they preserve order in a disorderly world.
