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.

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

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.
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… Continue

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!
Mine was pretty good. Spent time with the family and got new gadgets to play with! One of them being a kindle, so now I can read and get online and do whatever I want. Finally have my money for my corset, now just waiting on Mr. Thomas Willeford to let me know when I can come get it :) Also, started taking up ballet again and I am on day two... OMG my legs are killing me which means that it is working I guess. Miles and I are currently… Continue

I thought I might introduce myself to all of you and invite you to step through the gate into my… Continue

It took us slightly longer to find the house than it should have…
Annalee kept insisting that Litton stop and ask for directions. She
hasn’t been with us long enough to know that pirates never ask for
The house was calm and quiet… too quiet. No lights shone in the
windows, no illumination at all… save for a faint glow coming from the
backyard. We could hear… Continue

Entry #154Date Recorded: March 9, 1904
leapt on the lifeboat and chased the mad thing for nearly a mile. I was
right; it wasn’t hard to spot. It shot across the sky with lightning
speed in the direction of downtown Brookhaven. I feared that the thing
was drawn towards sources of energy by a thirst to drain it dry. Litton
steered us through the shadows to keep out of sight; swiftly but
silently. We were fast, but not as… Continue

Once again, many thanks to everyone who participated in the steampunk book giveaways of 2010! Perhaps we'll have more for you in 2011.
New Year's Eve brings out the steampunks, it seems; Euchronia will be holding its amazing biennial event in Australia, while LADEAD rings in the new year with a Prohibition-era theme.

I’m not going to say it was a shocking experience, but… bugger.
Pendergast returned with the Field Detector and my box of tricks. The
Field Detector fascinated Nikola; he helped me set it up. No sooner had
I switched it on, than it started humming like mad. The entire
atmosphere was electrified! There was a massive electromagnetic field
covering the entire block. There was… Continue

Last night was hilarious! There was a drinking contest called Truth, Dare or Drink. I don't believe I've laughed so hard in ages. Everyone was having a marvelous time. I didn't participate because I do not drink alcohol but I watched and had as good a time as everyone else. It made me laugh to see everyone get so carried away but no one was mean or derisive of any of their fellows whilst the game went on. I only wish I'd been able to stay but the sandman keeps calling me at such inconvenient… Continue

In the calm and quiet town of Long Island, New York stands an edifice
that symbolizes the glorious ambition of scientific progress:
Wardenclyffe Tower. Tesla’s genius wireless energy transmission tower.
It’s not functional just yet, it’s only 1904, but soon it shall be
buzzing. At the moment, the facility serves as Tesla’s laboratory.
Seeing as it’s a wee bit early for an airship… Continue

Chaos, it seems, lives at Worlds End. Last night I decided to take a toddle down to Worlds End to see if anyone was there for a post Christmas dinner tipple and what should I find but the beginnings of chaos. Tangl, who has become Jack's lady love, had gone missing. This was verified by the broken bit of a chain from a necklace Jack had given her that he'd found in the lane. James went berserk! He and Jack were sure it was the slavers out for revenge or more slaves. He snatched up his rifle,… Continue
