This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is:
Brass Sun: The Wheel of Worlds
Story by . . . . . . Ian Edington

Wren’s father has revealed to her the secret of their world, that it is only one of many in a clockwork solar system; but it is dying and to save her home, she must first escape it.
The Orrery is a fully functional, life-size clockwork solar system, a clutch of planets orbiting a vast Brass Sun via immense metal spars.
But the once-unified collection of worlds has regressed into eccentric fiefdoms, and ice is encroaching on the outer planets as the sun is dying. Wren and Eptimus must find the key to restart the sun, but first must escape the world known as The Keep….
This is a wholly original new SF-clockpunk series from the bestselling artist of New Deadwardians and the hit writer of Scarlet Traces and Hunterkind.
We talk about worlds within worlds and what tickle our fancy sci-fi wise. Joe runs with a theory that we have all changed intellectual positions due to Brass Sun. I rant a bit about other things in this week’s news that make me angry despite the interesting premise of the work before us.
Our hosts for this episode are Brant Eddy, Joe Preti, and Tobiah Panshin. On our next episode we will be reading Li’l Gotham, Vol. 1 & 2.
