‘A dark funny absurdist romp’ – SFX
We’ll create a machine. A peace machine that will put an end to all wars.
What if conflict were not inevitable?
What if a machine could exploit the latest developments in electromagnetic science to influence people’s minds?
What if such a machine could put an end to violence for ever?
We’re thrilled to be publishing the debut novel from Özgür Mumcu, one of Turkey’s most daring young voices, The Peace Machine. This wonderfully original Ottoman steampunk novel is both a rollicking historical adventure story and an incredibly powerful and important book for our times.
