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.

An interview given by Simon Whistler from Rocking Self-Publishing.
Ghosts of Shaolin
James Wainwright always considered himself a working-class engineer playing at detective, never taking the vocation for more than an idle hobby and opportunity to test some of his steampunk inventions. His investigations have always been more of a means of humoring his business partner, idle toff Alton Bartleby.
That was before his adopted daughter Xin Yan was taken.
Bartleby and James (Galvanic Century 1)
Alton Bartleby is a social savant and the foppish toast of Edwardian London's upper crust. James Wainwright is a brilliant but socially stunted working class engineer with a fialr for invention and a propensity towards violence. Together they solve the mysteries that Scotland Yard cannot.
This novel is the first in the Galvanic Century steampunk series of mysteries set in Edwardian England.
Dreams of the Damned (Galvanic Century 4)
Detectives Alton Bartleby and James Wainwright’s latest case will take them to the boundaries of Edwardian psychiatry and beyond. There’s been a murder in the Bedford Mental Hospital, and the patients have taken over to ensure that justice is done.
March of the Cogsmen (Galvanic Century 3)
It's been a rough year for gentlewoman Aldora Fiske -- airship battles above London, doomed expeditions in the jungles of Mexico, and even a kidnapping in Istanbul -- and now her bridegroom Alton Bartleby has shown up drunk to their wedding. Yes, it's a marriage of convenience and not one of love, and everyone knows it, but when an old foe decides to strike, things go from bad to worse.
A Gentlewoman's Chronicles (Galvanic Century 2)
Edwardian society insists Aldora Fiske be ever the proper gentlewoman. The Empire demands she be a credit to her family name. Her heart demands she seek adventure, and the further from London she travels, the louder its drumming becomes.
