Little of any consequence occurred during the next few days except for the quickening of our pace. The tunnel that the river moved through narrowed noticeable and the current of the waters flow increased. So rapid was our speed we soon began to fear being dashed into the rocky sides of tunnel. We spent a great deal of effort trying to keep our small boat (and the raft we had in tow to carry our supplies) from being swamped by the rivers tumultuous waters. The sound of the rushing water was… Continue

First off I must say that I'm not doing this just for attention but also to find out how many of my kind there are floating around on the inter-webs that do steampunk. I will be posting a discussion on it later.
To the blog!
I'm a 21 year old, a steampunk enthusiast, in love with the Victorian era in all aspects. I'd like to dabble in many different types of steampunk to see what will work for me and that I enjoy the most. This blog may read the same as most steampunk blogs… Continue

So I went to the Lillian Vernon website because I wanted to see if they had anything worth while - I was surprised to find some very steamy things there.
Budvase - $7.49 - for the mad scientist
double sided clock - $19.98
sutter deco fan - $159.98 - $249.98 - a little exspensive for my taste, but still cool.
Navigaator Canvus print - $49.98
They also have… Continue

Dear Friends & Followers-
It has been a crazy past few months. I really don’t even know where to begin. It almost seems hard to believe that in the relatively short time span I have thrown my… Continue

We just finished doing a very fun comedy skit/play at Yulecon. It was a
blast! Unfortunately we were not able to film it though some others
did, so maybe it will show up in cyberspace somewhere, but we were
billed as the local group which is Kali's Hourglass, so watch for it on
you tube etc. We have audio, but it loses a lot without visuals since
there is some physical comedy as well as… Continue

Date Recorded: January 9, 2999
We’ve been flying for Japan for a few hours now. The skies are slightly cloudy.
I’ve been spending my time in the galley with Litton and Annalee testing out some of her new recipes. On a scale from “scrumptious” to “good grief never again” it’s salted pork chops, Scotch eggs, Cornish pasties, spinach puffs. Little Darling’s spent the last few hours in her room,… Continue

I’ve got a sudden craving for dumplings. And since we’re already in the Pacific, I think we’ll head west to the Orient… Yes, west to Japan; I love circular logic.
The propellers of Coppersteam are set to move northwest to the Indian Ocean, and wait only for all ships to take flight. Little Darling returned from her date with Forrest… still no wedding date picked.… Continue

One of the difficult things about writing con reports for Beyond Victoriana
is that I've always missed something. Whether it be a panel, a cosplay, or The Biggest Story from the con, I know that since I'm only one person, I can't be everywhere at once to record it for the blog. Not to mention all of those great con events in the community that go on that I can't
attend. So for future conventions, Beyond Victoriana
will be extending its… Continue

Born 1887, Robert David Pille 'Nitto', Undisclosed Location, United States of America
Having been born in the United States and leaving the country to tour the world, my journeys took me to Russia in 1906, where I lived uncomfortably under the harsh rule of the Tsar. As such, although I was a member of the Bolsheviks who had been talking of revolution for some time, I defected… Continue

I sent a wire ahead to Coppersteam calling for a meeting of the Captain’s Tribunal. We made brilliant time across North America to Coppersteam. Passing over Washington, I looked down and wondered if Presidents Bradshaw and Crawford had reached a decision as to America’s involvement in Europe’s wretched war. No news is good news.
We docked the Hysteria and went our… Continue

November the Eleventh, Two-Thousand and Ten A.D.
Designs for my Necrotronical Skeletal Frame, and its all-too-necesarry sister project, Composite Manikin One, are underway. Already I have finished designs for the upper framework of the left arm and am hoping to complete both a Skeletal Frame and Composite Manikin arm design finished soon. The majority of Composite Manikin One's Skeletal Frame shall be operated through Pnuematics, and its chief purpose is merely one of… Continue

A little over a year ago, I posted a blog with a list of my books, graphic novels and movies related to steampunk and the Victorian era. I have added over 100 books to my library since, many of them steampunk and Victorian, and figured it was past time to update that posting so, rather than recreating it here, I have gone back and edited the original posting.
I should probably keep doing that as I add books one at a time rather than waiting another year to add all the new books at… Continue

and Daniel Cohen's "The Great Airship Mystery: A UFO of the 1890s"
and it stands as the most well researched and most convincing of all of… Continue

Afternoon: Prof. Clausis' attack left us angry and unsettled and we spared little time in getting our boat into the water and beginning our journey into the unknown. A great stroke of luck was that the sound of our boats small steam engine terrified the enormous white crocodiles that infested the subterranean lake so much so that the beasts stayed clear of us as we passed out of the temple/cave and into the swiftly moving waters of a narrow underground river.
Our boat, was equipped… Continue
