Last week we finished our serialization of all eleven chapters of The Lost Machine, an illustrated novel by author and artist Richard K. Kirk.
The Lost Machine follows Lumsden Moss’s journey from the plague-ridden Brickscold Prison to the City of Steps to find the killer of the children he once taught and was sentenced for murdering. Along the way, he meets up with Irridis, a mysterious traveler who wields strange glass projectiles who eventually proves invaluable to Moss’ quest. It’s a dark and imaginative novel that should appeal to weird fiction fans.
To accompany the serialization of The Lost Machine, we also published an interview with Kirk along with a gallery of Kirk’s illustrations and artwork. Below are also links to each chapter of The Lost Machine for anyone that missed it.
