May Books 8) Boneshaker, by Cherie Priest

A steampunk novel, set in an alternate 1880 where Seattle has been devastated by a mysterious gas which turns people into zombies; the wife and son of the inventor who caused the catastrophe 16 years before venture into the walled-off city to find The Truth. Lots of running around in poisonous fog wearing gasmasks while pursued by the undead. It's entertaining enough, if not Great Literature; will be below The City & The City on my Hugo ballot (I have yet to read the other nominees).

Just to encourage you not to switch votes - "The City and The City" was excellent. Albeit difficult to locate in my local library - they'd gone for the "The City and ytiC ehT" as their catalogue entry.

Yeah. (Of course I whinged).
