Comments on: Queen Victoria’s Bomb by Ronald Clark An online home for the steampunk movement in all its forms. Mon, 19 Jan 2015 05:28:47 +0000 hourly 1 By: Nigel Hillpaul Tue, 16 Apr 2013 19:21:28 +0000 Hi,
As this was one of the first AltHist novels I bought, I’d love to reread a review copy as my own real copy sadly disintegrated many years ago.

Feel free to get in contact

By: Emmanuel Kehoe Tue, 03 Jan 2012 17:12:34 +0000 Hi, I was talking about Steampunk to my son and it occured to me that Ronald Clark’s novel which I’d read decades ago fit the bill, so I was delighted to see it mentioned on my first visit here. As far as I can recall the story is told in the first person by a chap who builds a fission bomb in Victorian India. The two critical parts of the bomb were to be delivered to the same point from opposite ends of a specially built railway line so the explosion would take place. I believe the location was the Deccan Plateau in Southern India. The story was detailed and highly persuasive that such an event could have occurred given the available knowledge. Worth a read if you can get a copy. Best regards, ek
