The Iron Thorn - Caitlin Kittredge

 

AH! This is the book Lovecraft would have written if he were at all self-aware about his own fervent prejudices, and the prejudices of his time. Also, if he wrote in the 1950's. I love seeing steampunk with a greaser smoking and combing his hair in the background. Also, commentary on the Red Scare and McCarthyism. This book is continually surprising me in all the best ways.
