Knicker Teaser...

Scoundrelle's Keep
Knicker Teaser

As a Mad Scientist... it is in the job description to light up some beakers with mysterious glowing liquid and create.  Steam is rising.  Gears are laying about.  Trousers are stained with oil and goo.  Ah, yes here is a masterpiece.  Today I am revamping the Tuesday Teaser meme hosted by Lady MizB @ Should Be Reading.  Knicker Teaser is the twisted creation.  I will provide you with Steampunkery Knicker Teasers and Literary Samplings as well.

The Knicker Teaser is going to be a a tad different.  I have a new accomplice in my Steampunkery & Book Review realm.  He maybe new but I think we know just who wears the trousers at this blog.   
Mad Scientist and Noah the Victorian Punk do plan on teasing you a great deal.  Two times the literary goodness to temp you.  Oh my, that does sound delicious!!

Mad Scientist:

"Everyday the heat gets worse and worse. It creeps through the streets of Portland, festers in the dumpsters, makes the city smell like a giant armpit."
Softcover ARC page 178



Noah the Victorian Punk:



"I still remember the day my father took me to The Cemetary of Forgotten Books for the first time.  It was the early summer of 1945, and we walked through the streets of a Barcelona trapped beneath ashen skies as dawn poured over Rambla de Santa Monica in a wreath of liquid copper."
 
Paperback page 03



Look at that ladies. Our first post and our Fab Noah the Victorian Pubk is very much MIA. Wearing the trousers that I do, I took out the time to make sure everything was set up properly. All my accomplish had to do was... Well, nothing short from rocket science. *grin* I couldn' very well let him get those strong hands on my blog and start messing it up straight way. I do believe he will hear about this one for a while to come!!
 
Goodness me MS, one of us has to have a life!  So sorry to be so last minute, but there were some things that I had to attend to.  Besides, don't attempt to fool our dear readers love, you know that I had a bigger hand in it than you say.  Plus, you know what they say about a man with big hands right....No, get your minds out of the gutters!  I meant a very large brain. *smirks*

  2. Great teasers. I think I'm the only person who didn't really care for The Shadow of the Wind, though.

  7. Wonderful teasers! I have yet to read Delirium, but I loved Shadow of the Wind! Zafon is a very talented man. Did you know he composed a soundtrack to go with the book as well?

  14. Love it, love the teasers, love the whole tone here at your blog--so steamy and gothic.

    Thanks for wandering by earlier. Do drop in any time for a cuppa when the mad science gets wearisome.

  15. Delirium is just simply scrumptious... I would tell you more but I would not be such a trill when the review hits the blog. Coming very soon!

    I have also never heard of Noah's choice but the quote makes me think, finally a Igor worth keeping around. *winks*

  16. I liked The Shadow of the Wind. I think the storyline and writing were the key sellers for me. However, Zafron's other novel, the prequel, The Angel's Game I didn't feel lived up to this one. It still contained excellent writing, but I thought the plot carried into an odd direction. It was almost more than just a mystery, it was a bit on the paranormal side. To me it seemed not to fit in with The Shadow of the Wind.
