Ghosts of Shaolin has just been released! If you like #kungfu   #steampunk   thrillers, check out this fifth Galvanic Century novel.

http://www.mcoorlim.com/book/ghosts-shaolin/

It's available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iBooks, and soon through Kobo and Google Books.

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.
Never comfortable in social situations, James finds himself tracking his daughter’s kidnappers from London’s Limehouse to the gritty streets of Hong Kong, down paths where his mechanical know-how won’t serve him. Searching a foreign land, he’ll find that his greatest challenges aren’t those who have taken from him what is most dear, but letting go of his most treasured preconceptions about the world.

This is a great story...Michael has done it again and wrote a great series. I have already read the 1st book in the series and it was great. I have been waiting for 2nd book to wrap up so I can read it altogether...I prefer to read them altogether so I have been waiting not so patiently. I recommend this series...what do you have to lose, it is a win win situation...go on line read the 1st installment. It won't take too much of your time and it won't cost you anything either. So trust me I wouldn't lie to you.

Strange stories for stranger people. I write books. I produce films.
Introduction

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. He’s the author of the Galvanic Century series of Steampunk Thrillers, the literary apocalyptic short story collection Grief, and the supernatural serial Profane Apotheosis.

In 2012 Michael wrote the pilot for the atmospheric horror transmedia web-series Sleep Study. After two years of hiatus, the series is in pre-production again under the umbrella of his own Chicago-based production company Burning Brigid.

When he has a moment of free-time he writes the indie-focused book blog Book Nouveau.

You can also find him on facebook and twitter as @mcoorlim. Email him at Coorlim@gmail.com – he’d love to hear from you.

Michael Coorlim’s fiction can be found on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Apple, and Smashwords.
