Gail Carriger: Autograph Session
For The Steampunk World’s Fair 2015: Announcing a rare East Coast Appearance of Author Gail Carriger!

The Steampunk World’s Fair will be shortly after the release of Book #1 of The Custard Protocol, and we are thrilled to have her join us!

Gail Carriger writes to cope with being raised in obscurity by an expatriate Brit and an incurable curmudgeon. She escaped small town life and inadvertently acquired several degrees in higher learning, a fondness for cephalopods, and a chronic tea habit.

Her books are urbane fantasies mixed with steampunk comedies of manners. They have now been published in over a dozen different languages and she received the Prix Julia Verlanger from French readers. Her debut novel, Soulless, won the ALA’s Alex Award and was nominated for the Compton Crook, Campbell, and Locus Awards. All five in the Parasol Protectorate series (including Changeless, Blameless, Heartless, and Timeless) plus manga adaptations Soulless Vol. 1-3 were New York Times Bestsellers. Her most recent release is Waistcoats & Weaponry, the third in her critically acclaimed Finishing School series for young adult. She will release the first book in her new adult series, Prudence, in 2015.
