Cult British book about a man who trades his soul for a mechanical time traveling body. Coloured by a huge number of characters, this book is surprising not well known.
Loved by fans for its combination of steampunk backdrop and gritty urban characterization.
Contains examples of:
- Eternal English - Subverted, it is heavily implied that Marcus sows the seeds for many English words as well as making up nonsense ones.
- Our Souls Are Different - After trading his soul Marcus goes from grieving over his dead wife to a half-crazed Anti-Hero hell-bent on wreaking havoc on time itself.
