So what should we make of the fact that the SciFiWatch review says Mainspring is set in "an alternate early 20th century London?" The fact it was set in New England made me so happy-- am I totally insane, or was this reviewer not really paying attention/assuming your book copied every other steampunk novel?

Well, yes, it never goes anywhere near London. Not til the third book...and even then, only to Oxfordshire.

But one tries not to judge.

(Glad you liked the New England bits - relics of my Choate days.)
