The Making of a Bodice

I'm not typically taking photo of my sewing process (lucky if I get shots of the finished products!), but for a change, a series of in-progress smartphone shots of my current project. I am making a day dress ca. 1896, based on an 1897 pattern and inspired by a 1896 fashion plate for a "travel costume". I think of…

AnomalyCon 2015

     It is January and that means we are two months (or so) away from AnomalyCon! March 27 - 29 is AnomalyCon. It is the coolest Steampunk con in Colorado. I go to a lot of different cons, but this is by far my favorite! I am so excited for this year! It looks like it is going to be the biggest one yet. The one thing I love is that everyone is so laid back - and they are their to meet other people. It makes you feel like you know everyone there and they all want to talk to you. In fact this…

The Difference Engine - Practical Problems in Time Travel

The Difference Engine

Burce Sterling

William Gibson

Here's the problem: I haven't read this book yet. But every recommended book list for SteamPunk contains this title to suffice it to say - reading it is obligatory if one is to consider one's self SteamPunk.

I read other reviews. Going all the way from boring, to obscure, to fascinating and downright genius in execution. All in the same book.

Alas, what are we to make of…

Hello and review

Howdy gang! I am new here, but about to publish my first novel. An Unsubstantiated Chamber is steampunk/superheroics, this book is more chase than mystery. If I put the first few chapters here for review, will y'all read it and honestly critique it? Let me know.

   FADE IN





R.       ...and I'm glad our relationship has become a bit more congenial, but I'm still disappointed you cut off our question and answer session so early, Mr. Krancher.  I was really hoping to find out something of how you…
