About Michael Coorlim

Michael Coorlim is a teller of strange stories for stranger people. He collects them, the oddballs. The mystics and fire-spinners, the sages and tricksters. He curates their tales, combines their elements and lets them rattle around inside his rock-tumbler skull until they gleam, then spills them loose onto the page for like-minded readers to enjoy. He writes fast-paced stories about real people in fantastic situations, plots with just a twist of the surreal, set in worlds just a shadow’s breadth from our own.

Some whisper that he may, in fact, be a wizard. Others maintain that he’s naught but bluster and blarney. The truly wise know that there’s nary a difference.

Review by: Alfaniel Aldavan on Oct. 04, 2013 :
What if Holmes' friend was an engineer, they both lived in a steampunk England, and their story told in a witty style in a fantasy?

They would be Bartleby and James, the fun couple in this steampunk story.

Well written and a light read, the novelette has been a surprise. I found myself smiling at the tribulations of the engineer, enjoying his use of the detoxification apparatus, in a world excellently sketched with all its steampunk flavor.

This story makes a good read for steampunk fans, and also an easy introductory read for those curious to try steampunk.

By far one of the most entertaining works that I've read on Smashwords. I loved it from the very first page. An intriguing plot, believable and engaging characters with an endearing and humorous dynamic, and a few unexpected twists. Looking forward to reading more of the "Tales of a Galvanic Age" series.
