The Crossroads of the Aether
i love seattle, wa. the place possesses so much energy and before i knew much about it or it's ties to steampunk it just had that feel. actually inspired my current WIP when i got home. the story doesn't take place there and only mentions the city once but i came away from seattle with a new slice of imagination carved into my brain. so the main character, M. Blackhorn is a likable jerk who ingests more laudanum by 10 am than all the wounded soldiers in the civil war. but he has a heart and gets things done. think of him as a fighting House M.D. who kills bad guys and kicks a** instead of doctoring. maybe i'll tell you more about that later.
tell me all the great things to do on a regular basis in Seattle.
I would recommend Left Bank Books at the market, and Top Pot doughnuts.
