Tom Horn (Western Version)
This is the trailer for my new book, Tom Horn vs. the Warlords of Krupp. It's a combination of The Wild Wild West and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. It features historical characters meeting in a steampunk setting as they try to prevent a world war. Cameos by Teddy and Eleanor Roosevelt, the Wright Brothers, Thomas Edison, Mata Hari, and even a very young Adolf Hitler.

Tom Horn (British version)
Here's another take on the Tom Horn trailer--this one a bit more European and steampunk. Tell us what you think.

Review by: Bill Tillman on May 02, 2012 :
This was my first exposure to Tom Horn an American Folk Hero. As a steampunk story in the venue of 'Wild, Wild West' it is an excellent tale. The mechanics of the book were sadly lacking, typo errors galore, wrong tense and POV. I am sure the author will improve as he continues to write. I would recommend this tale to anyone wishing to read alternative history, steampunk or fiction.

Review by: Mike Ballew on March 22, 2012 : (no rating)
The book Tom Horn vs. The Warlords of Krupp is very engaging and gets straight to the point. There is no messing around and the story line never fades. The combined Alternate History and Steampunk is well done and keeps with what these two genres type try to maintain in their literature. The one thing I look for when selecting a book to reading, especially fiction, particularly Science Fiction, is a story where the tech never gets dated and I feel that this book would be just as engaging today or many years in the future.
