The Crossroads of the Aether
As today was the birthday of Jules Verne... I do think most of us know who he is; I do believe that a few of his quotes are in order for this day...
I believe cats to be spirits come to earth. A cat, I am sure, could walk on a cloud without coming through.
Science, my lad, is made up of mistakes, but they are mistakes which it is useful to make, because they lead little by…Continue

This is too good not to post. I think when an artist takes a lowly object and turns it into high art - that is clearly in the spirit of Steam Punk. Here is a beautiful…Continue

Seems that rumors are all the same.
As my crew reports, people are disappearing all over the city. Little Darling spoke to a man who had been witness to a small protest outside the Columbian Order's headquarters on 14th st. He recalls that three men were shouting things like "Down with Olvany" loudly outside the windows of the building. No one came out of the building, but a…Continue

So many noises, I can hardly make out the good ones.
We anchored the Hysteria very high above the harbor and switched on a radio jamming frequency so they couldn’t find us. Else will stay with the ship so she can get re-acquainted with it while we’re mucking about below… in the muck.
As well renowned as my face and hat are from the wanted posters, there are…

My friend showed me this video/song on youtube, and it is really...very cool. Hehe.
On Friday, 4 of February, at 22:43 I arrived at work, did my pre-trip inspection of my tractor and went into the dispatch office to see if my bills were ready so I could go and hook to my trailer and start work. Inside, waiting for me was my lay off notice, advising me that at the end of my shift that night I would be laid off and advising me to contact my union office at my earliest convenience. My lay is the result of Kingsway and Epic Express,…Continue

My latest post in my Salon is about ephemera in the steampunk world, and details a couple of my attempts to create ephemera of my own - airship tickets and a passport. The link leads to my Salon.Continue
Greetings and salutations from Q Labs!
I have been hard at work in many areas of our corner of the world, doing what I can to spread the tunes of a time that never was to an audience who may not even know they need to hear it. And so I found myself last month at a tradition of southern sci-fi conventions, ChattaCon, at the jointly planned event called the Boiler Room Bash. In addition to the efforts of my own Artifice Club, we were assisted by B.R.A.S.S. and G.N.A.S.H.,…Continue

New York City has always been a giant jungle of blabbering hypocritical monkeys… It’s not a pleasant place.
Although the Northern United States is ‘officially’ governed by President Henry Bradshaw, the true kingpin of American politics is a man from the big rotten apple… William Vanderbeck Olvany. A very powerful, very corrupt, very fat man and leader of the Columbian…

I am currently working on a series of steampunk novels. Which in my case often ends up with me getting caught up in research and not devoting enough time to actual writing. I've been lurking around groups like these enjoying your photos and immersing myself in this world you've all created. While I will probably never go to a convention or dress up in costume one of the things I feel that is so great about steampunk as a subculture is the focus on craftsmanship and creativity. I have a…Continue
