In true pulp fiction form, HAWTHORNE: Chronicles of the Brass Hand
is the story of young Edgar J. Hawthorne who sets out on a journey
to the Royal Observatory at the Cape of Good Hope, South Africa in
1835 after reading of an incredible discovery in the Edinburgh
Journal of Science, submitted by close family friend John Herschel.
Traveling with the Royal Air Brigade on the Stratos, England's newest
and most advanced airship, pride of the British fleet, Edgar and the
crew are caught unaware and attacked in the early hours of dawn by a
flotilla of marauding airships. Outnumbered the Stratos is forced down
into the deep jungles of Africa.
With the Stratos crippled and in need of repair Edgar, along with the
first officer and a portion of the crew, set out to locate provisions.
What Edgar discovers in the jungle, however, convinces him there are
other forces involved in the downing of the Stratos. In the attempt
to discover the truth behind the attack, Edgar unearths an unbelievable
and far-reaching secret.
Finding himself caught up in a conflict that has raged for centuries,
Edgar is thrust into a world of which only a handful are aware. With
the aid of a mysterious girl and an unlikely ally, Edgar must do the
impossible: prevent humanity's extinction.
