Gail CarrigerI have some exciting news to share: Gail Carriger is (hopefully) coming out with a new YA sci fi project called Crudrat!

What is Crudrat, you might ask? According to the website and press release, Crudrat is an original full-cast audio production of an original story from the talented Ms. Carriger. The only catch? It doesn't exist yet. Chapter 1 is complete but Carriger and ArtisticWhispers Productions need to raise $7,000 through Kickstarter to make it happen.

Crudrat may not be the expected Carriger blend of steampunk, humour, and fantasy but it sounds really good and I'm definitely intrigued. Check out the blurb below, taken from the website:

Welcome to The Wheel

The Progenitors of The Wheel live high up above the sky, amongst the stars, removed from the petty concerns of mere mortals. Each one designed, engineered, perfect; their imperfect children get left to die.

Ghosts. Cyphers. They do not exist. A lucky few, the Crudrats, scrape out a perilous living cleaning the toxic wastes from the great machines that power the station.

Meet Maura. Cypher. Crudrat. Grown too tall, alone in a spaceport with no use for her, doomed to starve. With only her crud-eating murmel and an alien monster to help her, she must find a way to survive, or escape, before they catch her and blow what’s left of her life, and her companions, into space

From the mind of Gail Carriger, ArtisticWhispers Productions presents a young-adult adventure tale that brings golden age-style science fiction into the 21st century, stuffs it full of heart, and gives it a finely polished, gleaming edge.

How cool does that sound? It's very different from what we usually get from Carriger but I think it will be delightful. If you're not as sure, you can get a sneak peak at Chapter 1 by signing up for the newsletter. You'll be taken to a super sekrit page once you've signed up.

The Kickstarter campaign will be starting on October 1 and run until Halloween. I'll put up another post once the Kickstarter link is available. Get excited, y'all, for a very different (but hopefully just as awesome) Gail Carriger tale!
