Boneshaker: The Movie!

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.

It was a fantastic read and I am very pleased for Priest and interested/excited to see what they will do with this on film. The technology is certainly at the right point to see her world imagined in all its alternate history/steampunk detail and if they actually use the book well the visuals will be backed by a solid story.

Fingers crossed.
