So, dear reader, you thought Spiderman and Iron Man was the ultimate team-up? Or Captain America and the Hulk, perhaps? No!

Such paltry partnerships were long before authors Charles Dickens and Stephen Hunt teamed up together to bring the world the steampunk adaptation of A Christmas Carol. This tome imaginatively entitled 'A STEAMPUNK Christmas Carol ... the fantastical adaptation no-one asked for, yet everyone somehow desperately needed.

Yes, this - spoilers - classic tale of a grumpy miser's Xmas-related redemption has been recast in the Jackelian Kingdom, a far-future steampunk Earth where Great Britain has rejoined the European mainland through continental drift (Brexiteer trigger warning).

The original tale has surely been vastly improved by the addition of airships, steam-driven computers and a robot called Boffin.

Forget the Muppet version. Forget that TV one with Captain Picard as Scrooge. 'A Steampunk Christmas Carol' is surely the comical and light-hearted definitive version that will be remembered millions of years in the future, after humanity has risen and fallen countless times across the endless cycle of history.

And if it isn't?

Well, failing some great technological advancements in immortality treatments or cryogenic suspension, you, dear reader are not going to be around to know about it.

Or, are you...?

Now with extra cogs and a SHOCK!!! ending thrown in for no extra cost.
