Wells." Tens of millions of readers have already loved this "really compelling... parody of Victorian period pulp-fiction" with "a nice feel of style," and praised writer D.L.

- "I am so joyful i discovered this book!"
- "...really good written and that i can't wait to learn the remainder of [the series]"

Review by way of Kira Lerner, writer and Editor-in-Chief of Epiguide.com:

The Magnetron Chronicles relates the apocryphal stories of The Hogalum Society, a Victorian period membership of "great males and nice deeds" (of which Phineas Magnetron himself is a member, naturally). consider a bunch constructed from Harry Houdini, Thomas Edison, Sherlock Holmes, Nikola Tesla, and different such fictional and real-life Steam Age luminaries with unconventional skills and ideas—all of whom have been appeared upon as a piece batty—and you will have a good suggestion of the Hogalum Society.

Anyway, the vanity of the sequence is that we're studying Magnetron's journals, and within the final event of Dr. Yngve Hogalum we thereby research of the unusual occasions that happen while Phineas takes it upon himself to resurrect the spirit of Dr. Hogalum (the writer tells me it truly is said "HO-ga-lum"), the Society's liked founder and mentor who has lately died. Phineas' plan (think: zombies) isn't really warmly got by way of his compatriots within the team, who fear that he is misplaced his marbles. the truth that he attempts to accomplish the required projects himself is admirable yet his plans cross awry, and after digging up Hogalum's physique, he retrieves basically the pinnacle, which he intends to reanimate with voodoo. mild challenge, simply because (as his Haitian buddy Petión observes) zombies are senseless our bodies, and the way worthwhile is a senseless head?

As you can most likely inform, the sequence is seriously encouraged by way of the works of H. G. Wells, Jules Verne, and—to a lesser extent—Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. And howdy, let's throw in Mark Twain besides, because—despite the truth that the journals are written with utter sincerity and seriousness, this can be certainly (and deliberately) humorous satire. for instance, this is considered one of Dr. Hogalum's first reviews upon his revival:

"I don't desire to look ungrateful after having been raised from the dead," he stated in a beleaguered tone, "but i need to ask why you probably did no longer see healthy to incorporate my physique during this enterprise!"

Indeed. D. L. Mackenzie's well-written final event of Dr. Yngve Hogalum harks again to the earliest days of the technology fiction serial, and does an excellent task evoking the fashion of these genteel yet breathless stories of exceptional discoveries, weird and wonderful innovations and unsafe (mis)adventure
