Jim Butcher, author of The Dresden Files, has signed a new 7-figure deal for three book steampunk series. The series will be called “The Cinder Spires” and will begin with the novel The Aeronaut’s Windlass.

Here is some more info on the series from Jim Butcher’s website:

At the Reddit AMA a few months ago, Jim said, “It’s kinda League of Extraordinary Gentlemen meets Sherlock meets Hornblower. There are goggles and airships and steam power and bizarre crystal technology and talking cats, who are horrid little bullies.” Jim is still writing the first book, The Aeronaut’s Windlass, so we don’t have a release date yet. We’ll let you know as soon as there’s something to announce!

    This ought to be pretty good. His Dresden books are great and the “Codex Alera” series are a good read.
