Novel to be available in e-book, paperback, and audiobook formats.

EDGE Science Fiction and Fantasy Publishing expect to release the novelization of the popular Steampunk podcast “The Tales of Sage and Savant” in early May. Transmigrations will be the first of four books, each one covering a season of the podcast and the lives of the Doctor Sage and her friend Professor Savant.

The Tales of Sage and Savant is a monthly audio-drama podcast set in an alternate history Steampunk universe. Steampunk is a retro-futuristic imagining a sci-fi future starting from a Victorian past. Sage and Savant exist in a sci-fi universe, which allows the podcast to investigate modern concepts and ideals. The combination of modern ideas and formalized vocabulary help to establish an other-worldly setting for the story. You can listen to the podcast free on their website, iTunes, Stitchers, TuneIn or any of the numerous podcast apps available.

In the first season, Doctor Sage begins her investigations into galvanism, which is the study of the application of electricity to human flesh. A laboratory accident leads Doctor Sage to discover time travel, which she dubs transmigration. Uncertain of the scientific ramifications of this new knowledge, she chooses to hide the research until such time as her experiments produce conclusive results.

Now in its second season, “The Tales of Sage and Savant” has become incredibly popular across the US, Canada, and Europe taking the time-traveling duo to new situations throughout history. Each episode pushes the question of equality, contemporary hubris, and the role our frame of mind plays on how we react to the world at large.

The lead character, Doctor Petronella Sage is angling to become a fellow at King’s College, a fictional university lauded for its Medical and Historical Science Departments. Although Petra has achieved her doctorate and a position at the university, because of Victorian attitudes toward women she is constrained on her capabilities. Women lag in recognition (and pay) for their scientific and academic successes. Doctor Sage is under immense pressure to perform perfectly and to bring credit to the institution before she has any hope of achieving her goal of becoming a fellow.
