Synopsis

Golem of Brick Lane by John Sutherland

Welcome to future past. We are in the reign of Queen Victoria and the Industrial Revolution is forcing great and terrible changes on the world. But civilisation stands at a junction: one road will lead to wealth, peace and prosperity, the other to war, poverty and ruin.Clockwork limbs, steam-powered automobiles, tanks and robots; aerial warships and an endless variety of inventions have been built using Steam Age technology. Dark and mysterious forces lurk on the fringes of civilisation, both human and supernatural. These forces reveal themselves as fleeting images only to those who have the power to see beyond the normal.YOU are Nicholas Fantom, a young newspaper reporter who has seen these forces, although few dare believe your visions. Only YOU have the will to battle these shadow empires.In The Golem of Brick Lane London is wreathed in smoke and fog: out there stalks a terrible and terrifying creature. Its victims are carried away to an unknown fate.YOU, a reporter on the Daily Examiner, are despatched to uncover the truth. But even YOU are not prepared for what you will face beneath the streets and hovels of the city. The hunter becomes the hunted in the world of labyrinths and sewers inhabited by nightmare creatures.
