Personal Journal Entry 14

Ah thats better. Fortified with tea and a plate of cucumber sandwiches I'm feeling much refreshed. Now where was I...Oh yes.

 

Later that evening I had gone into Worlds End as I always do. I was hoping to see Jack and relay the information I had gathered. Julien was there and as always I was thrilled to see my dear husband. He's away so often working that I don't see him much. And of course I have the tavern to manage so that keeps me busy. I was as always swamped upon arrival…

Personal Journal Entry 13

I really have been quite remiss about writing the last few days but things have been so confusing I just haven't been able to sort out what to write. I suppose now that things have calmed down a measure I should start at what I believe to be the beginning. I walked into Worlds End several days ago in my usual good cheer and discovered a much be-grieved Jack sitting at the bar weeping and pounding his head upon the wooden surface a note clutched in his hand. Having never seen Jack in such a…

Date Recorded: March 10, 1904

 

We helped Tesla tidy up his lab. He was inquisitive as to how I stopped the creature. "You used your hat, didn't you?" I asked him how he knew.

"You always use your hat. It's an asset and a miracle." he said. I was

flattered. After we finished cleaning the lab, we took Jacob Endicott's

brain from the jar and buried it behind the tower. At least his

physical form was at rest…

A 2010 Retrospective & Ringing in the New Year with New Features

2010 has been a momentous year, both blog-wise and in general steampunk-wise. Looking back, a lot of amazing things happened: I attended dozens of cons and steampunk events, corresponded with many interesting and smart steampunks, won an award, and got a cool side job. I've worked with a growing network of steampunk hobbyists, academics, tinkerers, activists, and costumers. Many of these people I now consider friends of the blog and in real life as well. Because of efforts from everyone here,… Continue

First Look: Gideon Volgas (my personal character)

I spent many a day and night thinking about the conception of Gideon. I ran multiple character ideas i made for various role-playing games. Each one had their own flair that didn't fit with the style of this story, so i had to dig down and do something rare. I made…

A World in Ashes: A look inside the World

This story that involves my character, Gideon Volgas, is my FIRST attempt to working out of novel of sorts. I've written short stories and poetry in the back in day, but to put together a full story and created a world within it is a challenge. I used to often play table-top RPGs (Dungeons & Dragons,…

Date Recorded: March 9, 1904



We jumped on the lifeboat and sped back to Wardenclyffe Tower. There

was no telling how much damage the creature had done in New York City

by now, so there wasn’t a moment to lose. I had a plan…



When we reached the tower, Tesla was outside waiting to meet us. I

jumped off the boat and immediately ran up to him. “Is the transmitter

switched on?” I asked him. “The power is… Continue

Who Is Toki?

Who is Toki?



Mrs. Toki Prolepsis

    I started out as Almira Humphries, daughter of Imogene and Alfred Humphries. I was their eldest child, followed by my baby brother a year later, Alexandros.

Book art





I love Victorian era book art. When I get this novel published I intend to do my best to have at least a dozen technical drawings and a few etchings like the examples above. When I have free moments between writing and other commitments (ha!) I'll be working on sketches, Adobe Illustrator and CGI renderings of the various inventions and steam powered contraptions which… Continue

Evening ladies and gentlemen,

I am Dr. Alister Grey, I've newly decided to join The Steampunk Empire at my friend Vivian's request. I am quite excited and I suppose I should tell you all about me and my life.

I was born. One day I will die. Fin.

 

Not really.

I am a doctor of science. Of what in particular is currently restricted for your knowledge. My apologies...

I can say, however, that I am currently traveling. Perhaps for the sake of traveling.

 

-    It is quiet nice…
