(I'm surprised this wasn't pointed out. I guess no one among my handful of readers is a herpetologist.)
Whoops! I have just learned that snakes DO NOT possess nictitating membranes. What they have is a clear, scale-like covering over their eyes called a brille.
Well, I've clearly established that Sabeetha has nictitating membranes, so she's going to keep them. Besides, I just plain want her to have them. There's no reason Dr. Conroy could not have…Continue

Well, I'm too poor to pull off Teslacon this year so all my energy (and what little time I have) are going into small sellable projects and some new tidbits for Ohayocon in January and the Symposium.
I feel I should drop a teaser or two in here, it may happen...
An upgrade in status at work brings a little bit of relief to the poorness, but there's a great deal more to be done. I have so many projects that I need to get started or complete (not to mention the the typical…Continue

It's called Blackbourne Manor and the stories center around a Victorian Lord and Lady and their serving staff. It's full of mystery and magic and adventure and ridiculous circumstances, and it's worth checking out if you like things that are awesome. http://blackbournemanor.blogspot.com/
If you’ve been thinking of buying The Vitruvian Heir, but wonder if it’s really up your alley, let this thorough new review byZach’s YA Reviews inform you! Happy…Continue

Although not Steampunk, probably not good form for my first post, I am pleased to share with you the artwork for Pole to Pole's anthology "Hides the Dark Tower" which will include "Core Craving", a short horror story of mine. It has been rumoured that some well-known names in the horror…Continue

Oh dear, I think I am too wordy for a 140 character reply, so I've added this answer as a blog post. (Forgive me, I am learning the system, and everything takes me twice as long as everyone else, on account of the fact that me and Mr. Time can never agree.)
Hello Steve, Thank you for the invitation to call at the Scribbler's Den.
I hand-make books for costume, story, or just as a beautiful place for jottings, ephemera, notes and collections of thoughts. I combine any…Continue

This is from A WOLF TO WATCH OVER ME, a short sci-fi romance releasing on July…Continue

On Wednesday I had been looking at my calendar and making sure I knew everything that was coming up. I thought, “Hey. Isn't the old west thing at Old Bedford Village coming up?” So, I went to the website and, “Holy crap, it's this weekend!”
Last year I had spent the weekend, participating as a performer. No time to prepare for that this year. And besides, the weather report called for lots of rain and I did not look…
Do you hear there?
The Scribblers Den is my favourite part of the Steampunk Empire. Wonderful, kind and considerate people hang out in Jack Tylers' virtual bar for writers. Hemmingway without the hooch perhaps. Anyway I have never blogged and this is my first effort at a blog courtesy of Jacks good advice that a blogspot comes with being a Steampunk Empire citizen! Huzzah!
And so teh Seven Seven Seven challenge is a writing game where we have to reveal the Seventh…Continue

I know I haven't been on here in quite awhile. Life happened and I found myself taken away from the community.
However, I have news, for all those curious. I have started a YouTube Channel. I am doing the game commentary thing. While not directly steampunk, per se, I where my monocle on my head in every video. I do want to do some steampunk inspired games in the future. I know Guns of Icarus is out,but without a good group of people to play with, I would be kind of floundering. If…Continue

I've had an interest in steampunk far longer than I've known of the term. I devoured the classics as a kid. Vernes, Wells, Burroughs, Haggard, Heinlein. I've led a rather interesting life. Soldier, Medic, Scout, EMT, Nurse, Freemason, and faithful husband to a sweet lady that puts up with my lunacy.
