As we look for fuel for our imaginations and inspirations for Steampunk literature, let us not be bound by Anglophilia and focus on adventures based in Europe. (Weird West folk excepted) I shall not…Continue

Dr. Teal,

My good man, so glad that you survived the airship crash and the fussys in the Congo. I think I have perfected the hyper-air sack, which should improve the function of your airship. Please see me when you are next in Scotland.

I say, old top! Found this and was wondering if it might pique your interest?

Bit of the old ultra violence, without so much violence! I think it would be smashing good fun and would add a bit as a demo piece to a Fair or Fete!

Hi, yes it is me again :). I wanted to see how you and your lovely wife were doing these days. I sincerely hope that you are well and happy and life is treating you with the greatest of kindness. I have been keeping you both in my thoughts and have wanted to inquire as to how you are for a while now. Please, if it is not too much bother, leave me a quick message and let me know what is going in your lives. Have a wonderful Sunday, and take good care of each other, your Steampunk buddy, Thess.

Hello! Yes, I was there at the Charles River Museum on Saturday, from about 1:30 to 3:00 pm. I was mostly up where the vendors were. I had on a green dress, a small black hat with a big scrimshaw cardinal pin on it, other scrimshaw cardinal jewelry, and jingle bells.
