The rock group Rush announced they will be releasing a new album titled “Clockwork Angels”… and Mr. Kevin J. Anderson, the author behind numerous science fiction novels, will be writing a novelization of the album. I must admit I’m not overly familiar with his work, as it has been focused on the “Star Wars” series, but I’m confident the album and novel will be better received than the last time a music group decided to use the genre as little more than background (Yes, I’m referring to the Sugarland’s Incredible Machine album, which was supposed to refer to the genre, in some way. I did try to give it a spin, so to speak, but I don’t think it had much to do with Steampunk at all).
Regardless, for a bit more analysis, please pass an eye at IO9’s article on it, at: http://io9.com/5884531/kevin-j-anderson-will-novelize-rushs-new-album, and at: http://exclaim.ca/News/rushs_upcoming_clockwork_angels_to_receive_its_own_novelization
