A little ditty on leggings and how...interesting they are.
Oh! Leggings are tight, and look quite nice. If they were tighter, I'm sure it be nicer, to see a young bloke, a'flunkin' his junk; and I'm sure all the wenches would be quite charmed; Wherest their boyish companions are surely alarmed!

Hi, I want to read some steampunk-themed novels (they can be ebooks) but with GOOD plots and good writing.
Can anyone recommend authors or books they read and liked?
Zebulon Vitruvius Pike (listed on the title pages as Vitruvius Pike) was the hero of a series of late Victorian Era science fiction and adventure dime novels. The first novel, "Vitruvius Pike and the City of the Sun", was written by Eli Bollinger and serialized in New Dime Novels in 1876. Subsequent stories were serialized sporadically in other American dime novels, pulps and British penny dreadfuls. After Bollinger's death in 1904, finished but previously unpublished stories appeared…Continue

The other day, I was looking at all my photo files and thinking I really should do something fun with all these photos. I have spent so much time and energy creating different steampunk looks, maybe I should share them with others. So...
Announcing the release of my book…

This morning begins with a screeching alarm
And the lost-wallet panic of a dream snatched away.
I seek pity from a digital clock
Without face, or arms, or a heartbeat of its own.
(There is only the droning hum of its light,
A garish green that flashes, “2:Late”)
I remember when clocks had second hands
Long, golden warnings of minutes to come

It is so exhilarating to put the costume on for the first time.
Another tangible, visible asset joins all these other ethereal ideas that have surrounded who the character is. You read the script, and those lines go through your imagination and you see what you want her to be, but then you look in the mirror, and boom!
The costume is always one of those last steps before you need to take a deep breath and take the plunge. All that homework, memorization,…Continue

I woke up in St. Mary’s ER, on one of those gurneys in a small treatment room. My head ached. So did my knees and right ankle.
