About this title:

Synopsis: "Lovecraftian in the best possible way... the juxtaposition of a steampunk alt-Victorian society and a savage, almost alien island that literally distorts its visitors' sanity and quickly runs red with blood is striking." -Vance Kotrla, Nerds of a Feather

"So very few steampunk/Victorian stories out there will capture your attention the way this one will." -Ryan, Reader Review

"Discovering Aberration will steal your mind from reality and take you to a place of unpredictable adventure with twists and turns that will leave you craving more." -EJR, Reader Review

Thaddeus Lumpen's archaeology career is near collapse, thanks to the machinations of rivals who would kill to claim a discovery for themselves. In desperation he turns to Freddy Fitzgerald, a rebellious writer who still maintains connections from his days as a street hooligan. For Lumpen to get ahead of his even less scrupulous competitors he must steal an ancient map and forge a path to an island where a lost civilization waits to be found. For Freddy, it's a chance to sell the story of a lifetime.

But nothing is as simple as it appears from halfway across the world. Old acquaintances become enemies, professional rivalries turn violent, and a notorious gang lord wants his map back. The island itself holds dangers that Freddy and Lumpen couldn't have prepared to face--and horrifying secrets that might be better left buried. Beset by wild beasts, cutthroat competitors, and dangers darker still, the two men fight not for glory, but their own survival... before the island pushes them past the brink of insanity.
