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

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

“Edward…I need you.
“NT.” one of the most brilliant men that history has ever produced.
Nikola Tesla had a mind centuries ahead of his time, and continued to
shape those centuries far after his death… unfortunately… I do not
often hear from him under casual circumstances. Nikola’s genius saw the
future in shocking clarity and certitude. He… Continue

Just the thing to cheer me up… goosing.
over Canada and at just the right season for stragglers. We spotted a
fine flock flying and honking away over Vancouver. There were only
three goose nets onboard, so we had to take turns, but oh the fun we
had. Little Darling and Pendergast and I went first. Darting through
the flock, nets ablaze; I’m proud to write that I caught… Continue

"Incredibly, in 1906, Cahill's Telharmonium became a commercial operation broadcasting performances to subscribers in the New York
Metropolitan area over telephone lines.
Get that: 100 years ago, a touch-sensitive polyphonic synthesiser was streaming music over the phone."
A musical instrument that sounds like a lobster-supper dream, as my illustrious great-uncle might have said.
