Review by Bill!
“‘Exhaust from the Tin Woods’ is a quirky, compelling read. Eric Kregel brilliantly suspends reality, leaving the reader wondering who really wrote it and why? It left me oddly off balance and insatiably curious as to the rest of this truncated story set in an almost familiar world. It was like reading a fragment of an ancient scroll that leaves one hanging on a roller coaster that almost made it to the top, the mad race down the rickety track teasingly out of reach. It is a frustratingly well-played ploy to leave the reader craving for more of the tale. This is however, more than just a simple story, there is an intriguing social commentary underlying Eric Kregel’s steampunk world. Sorry, no spoilers. Even if steampunk isn’t your go to genre – it isn’t mine – read it.”

Take a gripping journey into Alberta Canada’s alternate past with Grouard as the Provincial Capital. Exhaust in the Tin Woods takes us on a ripping trip through a dangerous adventure of mystery and destruction in northern Alberta of the1895 where science is a strange master. Eric J Kregel takes our minds through a portal into another possibility which could have been. Eric delivers us a suspenseful gripping story through a vocabulary of his own, yet we understand.
