GanymedeBook - 2011
"The air pirate Andan Cly is going straight. Well, straighter. Although he's happy to run alcohol guns wherever the money's good, he doesn't think the world needs more sap, or its increasingly ugly side-effects. But becoming legit is easier said than done, and Cly's first legal gig--a supply run for the Seattle Underground--will be paid for by sap money. New Orleans is not Cly's first pick for a shopping run. He loved the Big Easy once, back when he also loved a beautiful mixed-race prostitute named Josephine Early--but that was a decade ago, and he hasn't looked back since. Jo's still thinking about him, though, or so he learns when he gets a telegram about a peculiar piloting job. It's a chance to complete two lucrative jobs at once, one he can't refuse. He sends his old paramour a note and heads for New Orleans, with no idea of what he's in for--or what she wants him to fly. But he won't be flying. Not exactly. Hidden at the bottom of Lake Pontchartrain lurks an astonishing war machine, an immense submersible called the Ganymede. This prototype could end the war, if only anyone had the faintest idea of how to operate it.... If only they could sneak it past the Southern forces at the mouth of the Mississippi River... If only it hadn't killed most of the men who'd ever set foot inside it. But it's those "if onlys" that will decide whether Cly and his crew will end up in the history books, or at the bottom of the ocean"--

SummaryAdd a Summary
Andan Cly is a (mostly) retired pirate living in a blighted Seattle. Josephine Early is mixed-race madame in New Orleans. They used to be lovers, and now Josephine wants a favor from him for old time's sake. It's a biggie -- she wants him to pilot an experimental submarine through the Mississippi to the Union forces waiting in the Gulf. Andan and Josephine's challenges in this mission include an occupying Texian army intent on finding the sub themselves, a slow-growing zombie infestation, and the sub herself, the titular Ganymede, who has killed her last two crews.
