Holy shit, y'all.
So, you know Boneshaker, that fantastic novel from Cherie Priest which featured an alternate America where the Civil War stretched into the 1880's and had a steampunk flair to it?
If your answer to that question is "no", then go read the book!
If your answer is "hell yeah!", then you may be as excited as I am (though not as excited as Cherie) that the film rights to Boneshaker has been sold.
A huge congratulations go out to Cherie Priest. I've been a fan of Priest's work for a while now and I am absolutely thrilled at her continued success in general and this sale in particular. Good on her.
