Anyone attending ' Ironfest 2015 ' at the Lithgow Showgounds , April18-19th ?

Sounds like a hoot with a mish-mash of Steampunk , historical re-enactors and cosplay .

Day admission is $35 for adults $25 for children with weekend passes at $55 for adults and $35 for children . Family passes are $95 or $140 for the whole weekend .

Lithglow is apparently a two and a half hour drive from Sydney or trains run hourly from Central Station on the Blue Mountains line .

Sounds like fun .

Issue 76 of the magazine ' Wargames - soldiers and strategy " now available from  local newsagents is devoted to Steampunk under the general heading of ' Adventures in the Age of Steam . '  Many Steampunk figures produced for table-top games are reviewed and scenarios including a hunt for Jack the Ripper are presented .

I would hope that the eye-candy on offer ( and some of the miniatures are mouth watering ) might interest readers in the wider implications of the term ' Steampunk . '

Some exciting news: Decay, the second book in my Steampunk series the Tesla Evolution (set in the Australian outback) has been chosen by UK's respected review site, the Bookbag, as one of the top ten self published books of 2014.

Hot on the heels of being awarded runner-up in the SelfPublishingReview's Full Moon 2014 Science Fiction Awards.

So Steampunk Aficionados:

I present to you my latest creation, which has been brewing for the last few years. Made by one of your very own antipodeans.
