Snagged from BSC Review:

A Transatlantic Tunnel, Hurrah! by Harry Harrison

A metal highway under the sea is no longer a dream. Captain Augustine Washington and his team of navvies are already driving the tunnel under the Atlantic in an heroic feat of construction. For Gus, a descendant of the infamous George Washington, executed as a traitor after the Battle of Lexington, this is the opportunity to redeem the family name. But his beautiful fiancee has been forced to end their engagement, and there is a ruthless and sinister plot to destroy the tunnel – and Gus himself…

Man, between this and the Angry Robot Books editions of Infernal Devices and Morlock Night by K.W. Jeter, the progenitors of the Steampunk genre have sure been getting some amazing cover treatments. Yay! for old books being given a fair shake with a new audience. Hopefully we see more of this across all genres.

Cheers to the art team at Tor Books and artist Lorenzo Petrantoni.

    I am really loving some of the steam punk covers at the moment. :)
