In the 1880s, the scorer for the Cubs baseball team was a woman! Unofficially, of course. But hooray for "E. G. Green," also known as Eliza, for her baseball career.

The Perfect Frame

Some weeks ago, I was at a local mega-flea market and came across a seller that had a BB gun that looked like a Colt Peacemaker. He also had a pair of fencing foils. I had no particular use of a pair of fencing foils,m didn't have an immediate use for the BB gun and had spent what little money I did have on me at the time on some tools. If I were the type of man who learned from his mistakes, I would have walked to the Wal-Mart across the way, gotten the necessary funds from the ATM and… Continue

Watched this movie last night: Peter Cushing (!) and Christopher Lee (!!) star as sparring half-brothers bent on isolating the germ for EEEEVIL. Also, giant skeleton from Papua New Guinea.

Victorian Mad Science abounds!

Multi-cultural Steampunk: Any interests?

I was approached by some friends to design some steampunk attire for them for this falls con, but when they found out that there was more to Steampunk than English wear, they looked at me puzzled. I mentioned how fun it would be if they brought their own personal cultures into their steampunk personas...then it hit me...is that something people would find interesting to wear? Too photography? To explore?

 

Or is sticking to the typical UK presented attire the only way to…

Bummer...

Looks like my story in The Immersion Book of Steampunk got bumped from the anthology to make room for a story by a World Famous Big Name Writer. Naturally, I'm disappointed, but I realize that it was a business decision and that the book will sell more copies with the latest line-up of writers. So my story got cut, but I have had another offer concerning it so all is not lost.

The current publication date is slated for an August release, with a launch at the UK FantasyCon in…

QUAINT #26: He Yufeng from “The Gallant Maid” by “Yanbei Xianren” (a.k.a. Wen K’ang)

From the Chinese film version of "The Gallant Maid" titled "The Heroine"



He Yufeng was created by “Yanbei Xianren” and appeared in Ernü ying xiong zhuan (The Gallant Maid, 1851-1879). “Yanbei Xianren” was the pseudonym of Wen K’ang (1798- 1872), a local official in Anhui who came from a prominent Manchu family and was appointed imperial agent to Lhasa. The Gallant Maid is little-known outside of China but is popular…

I haven't been around lately because I've been working my spats off!  It all payed off though!  I've signed two short stories with Tease.  One, The Alchemist's Perfect Instrument, is going to be the first e-short release in a serialized collection of Steampunk Shorts!  TAPI should be coming out by the end of the summer, so keep you eyes peeled!  And, if you like what you read, don't be afraid to pick up the rest of the City Steam:Tales From the Heart of Dormorn… Continue

Off the Deep End

Well since discovering Steam punk and finding it suits me rather well. Or I should I say  I finally found other people like minded as myself. My family and even my best friend all think I have lost it totally. Jumped 5 fathoms down off the deep end.

Now this is not totally a bad thing. For I have found when those closest to you feel you've totally lost it then there is a certain freedom to be found. In short nothing I do will surprise them any…

Beyond Victoriana #83 Enichari Corps: Slaves in the Ottoman Military — Guest Blog by Harry Markov





When I agreed to write the series about Bulgaria under the Ottoman rule as a suitable stage for the steampunk genre, I underestimated the challenge these articles present. I want to deliver a portrayal of a complicated and cruel span of five centuries in Bulgarian history. At the same time I’m dealing with controversial and sensitive material, given that the Ottoman occupation has hindered Bulgaria’s access to Europe during the time of the Industrial Revolution.… Continue
