    The year is 1926 and the USA is in a Cold War with Britan Masked vigilante The Ghost is on the trail of a crime boss called The Roman Can he evade police long enough to catch The Roman and put a stop to his reign of terror The easiest way to sum up Ghosts of Manhattan is to say Steampunk Batman That s what it is It s very much a Batman story with steampunk trappings And the trappings are minimal If minor details were changed, it could have easily taken place in our 1926.I have to admit I The year is 1926 and the USA is in a Cold War with Britan Masked vigilante The Ghost is on the trail of a crime boss called The Roman Can he evade police long enough to catch The Roman and put a stop to his reign of terror The easiest way to sum up Ghosts of Manhattan is to say Steampunk Batman That s what it is It s very much a Batman story with steampunk trappings And the trappings are minimal If minor details were changed, it could have easily taken place in our 1926.I have to admit I almost liked Ghosts of Manhattan It was action packed and very pulpy The Ghost s gadgets were well done The slight Lovecraftian overtones were a nice touch.Like I said, I almost liked it Here s why I didn t George Mann d...

    Do you like noir, pulp, The Shadow, Watchmen, Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, steampunk decopunk, Sin City, and Batman Then I have a feeling that you ll love getting to know The Ghost, our lead character and vigilante of Ghosts of Manhattan The story moves along at a lightning fast pace and it s a lot of fun, especially when it comes to the fight and chase scenes The only down side is the characters, they were a little too flat when it came down to it The tale is very visual and I th Do you like noir, pulp, The Shadow, Watchmen, Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, steampunk decopunk, Sin City, and Batman Then I h...

    Spoilers Well, sort of Honestly, it s not like you re going to be that surprised Because this book often shows up on essential dieselpunk reading lists even though the jacket claims it s the first steampunk superhero a claim completely unsubstantiated anywhere in its 230 pages , I a sort of dieselpunk cadet wanted to like it But as it all too frequently happens these days with subgenres trying to find their niche audience, the otherwise appropriate pieces never quite come together Spoilers Well, sort of Honestly, it s not like you re going to be that surprised Because this book often shows up on essential dieselpunk reading lists even though the jacket claims it s the first steampunk superhero a claim completely unsubstantiated anywhere in its 230 pages , I a sort of dieselpunk cadet wanted to like it But...

    If I wanted to read Batman fanfiction, I could probably find better fic on the Internet for free.While the book is set in an old tymey steampunk universe, everything else is straight from the DC Batman universe, coated with a quick and slapdash coat of paint I do not know whether this is merely a steampunk AU fanfic with the serial numbers filed off, or if it was an official Elseworlds script submission which DC turned down, but either way, it s still Batman, albeit in the Witness Protection If I wanted to read Batman fanfiction, I could probably find better fic on the Internet for free.While the book is set in an old tymey steampunk universe, everything else is straight from the DC Batman universe, coated with a quick and slapdash coat of paint I do not know whether this is merely a steampunk AU fanfic with the serial numbers filed off, or if it was an official El...

    So this is how I end up spending my Sunday I knew I wanted to read I just didnt realise how much.So the book well the first challenge is to say what genre it draws from which is easier said than done There is noir detection, alternate history, science fiction, urban fantasy and those are the ones I recognise I am sure people can addto them But what of the story well I guess with this many genres the author can pretty much do what he likes and knows that its acceptable under what ev So this is how I end up spending my Sunday I knew I wanted to read I just didnt realise how much.So the book well the first challenge is to say what genre it draws from which is easier said than done There is noir detection, alternate history, science fiction, urban...

    For George Mann s sake, I m glad that I have a tendency to purchase all of the books in a series when I decide to read the first one He gets my commission, as does my local store These are both good things But never have I felt so embarrassed to read a novel since I was a kid first realizing that YA stories no longer held my attention or demanded my suspension of disbelief And those were the well constructed stories.I don t like to write negative reviews of anything at all, so I ll keep this For George Mann s sake, I m glad that I have a tendency to purchase all of the books in a series when I decide to read the first one He gets my commission, as does my local store These are both good things But never have I felt so embarrassed to read a novel since I was a kid first realizing that YA stories no longer held my attention or demanded my suspension of disbelief And those were the well constructed stories.I don t like to write negative reviews of anything at all, so I ll keep this short The Ghost doublet so far of Steampunk novels is atrocious, trite prose filled w...

    Ghosts of Manhattan was a lot of fun Unlike a lot of pulp homages, Mann doesn t try to echo the clunky dialogue and purple prose of the originals Instead, he makes his book feel the way we remember the pulps feeling, concentrating on reminding us of the best qualities fast pacing, larger than life weird action instead of the worst.I did wonder if too much information was saved...

    Picked up for a pittance in a charity shop somewhere, so utterly awful that I may just bin it rather than have the possibility of someone else reading it sitting on my conscience.Stylistically it nearly made me weep, for a book that steals so much from The Great Gatsby you d hope the author would takethan a few characters and a setting and learn a little from his prose.Also Alan Moore did the whole Cthulu erupts into high society thing a lot better in one of his League of Extraordinary Gen Picked up for a pittance in a charity shop somewhere, so utterly awful that I may just bin it rather than have the possibility of someone else reading it si...
