Storm Watch first appeared in 'Tales from the Asylum: A Steampunk Compilation', published by The Last Line in 2010. 'Tales from the Asylum' is the first volume of 'The Asylum Chronicles'.
The Asylum - it was built like a fortress; yet no-one questioned why.
It had hundreds of uniformed wardens; almost no-one noticed.
It held strange and dangerous inmates; no-one knew.
Built in the 1870s, yet seeming to endure forever, the Asylum has seen governments rise and fall, has witnessed wars and riots. It has stories to tell, strange twisting stories of past and future
Storm Watch is James' story.

And my compliments of the season to you all!
There are several ways you can go about this:
- The Automata Wars Volumes 1, The Home Front, and 2, The Front Line are both available for download via Amazon for kindle (not free, sorry!) (or you can find them via my Amazon page at www.amazon.com/author/lmcooke if you're not in the UK)
- You could come to Southcart Books next Saturday, 13th December, for Southcart's Festive Fantasies event, and pick up paperback copies of the Automata Wars series while you're there
At Southcart, I'll be doing a reading from The Home Front, and also, I MAY have written a short, wintery story to read, especially for this event (called The Wolves of Winter). There'll be lots of other writers reading too, and lovely Scott and Amy, Southcart's proprieters, will also provide free nibbles. It's free entry too, and a fantastic opportunity to get some rare and unusual Xmas presents, so we hope to see you there...
(Full author programme will be announced very soooon...)
If you would like to acquire a paperback copy of The Home Front, then there are only ten(10), yes ten (10) copies left of the first print run. That's ten (10).
The Last Line publishing house currently has one (1).
I have the remaining nine (9) (mwah ha ha ha)
If you'd definitely like one (1)(or maybe more), drop me a line so that I can reserve one (1)(or maybe more) for you...
