Cora and the Clockwork Men: a chronicle of the Walker

Rated 4.50/5 based on 7 reviews
Cora Webb has lived the most ordinary of lives for over 23 years -- that of an average college student, with an average boyfriend, an average apartment and an average number of overdue bills. However, all of that changes when the Clockwork Men come to kill her. Cora's only hope is the mystery man known only as the Walker.

"Cora and the Clockwork Men" is great for fans of contemporary fantasy. More

I love Steampunk and enjoyed this short story. But I would prefer Nastos to publish his chronicles together as a novel - this felt like the first chapter of an AMAZING book. Then it ended abruptly. Darn!
Looking forward to reading more from this author.

I'm not really a fan of Sci-Fi but this short story really held my attention the whole time and like others have also said left me wanting more. I can't wait to find out what happens to Cora & Walker!

Review by: Lynda Fries on Aug. 10, 2011 :
This was a really entertaining sci fi/steampunk short story. It opens with, "I was 23 when I learned the universe wanted me dead." It doesn’t let up from there. The action is fast-paced and sprinkled with just the right amount of humor. Cora is in an unsatisfying relationship and thinks she’s having a bad day…until the clockwork men show up and it gets much, much worse. In the midst of fighting for her life, she meets the mysterious Walker, who just may be able to get her out of this mess and provide her with some very important answers.

This story was fun and well-written. I hope to read more about Cora and the Walker in the future.
