A Ramble About Texting at the Table and Derogatory Language

    Once upon a time, last month, a group of young people went to dinner before attending their high school prom. Of course they all had their smart phones in hand and they were texting each other at the table. One of the young men realized, far too late, that he was a little short of funds. He…

A Compendium of Steampunk Moving Pictures

My Favorite Steampunk Moving Pictures

Of course, I know what I consider to be Steampunk/Dieselpunk may not be by others, but I do know that The Wild, Wild West has been featured in a Steampunk book compendium. I also know that both Tai Chi movies are Asian Steampunk, in this case, Chinese. I highly recommend those on both the Animated and Live Action lists, though the two on my third list are maybes. I really love Edgar Rice Burroughs and have read all of the…

Interwebs Posting Manners - Pretty is as Pretty Does

... About putting things on the interwebs....think, dear friends, before you touch that keyboard. Then stop and think again, before you hit that "send" icon.  I say this in all seriousness, because  as many celebrities have learned to their detriment, your words can come back to haunt you even decades…

New costume in the works

Working on a Renaissance Steampunk (I've also heard clockpunk thrown around regarding Renaissance era) costume with a Doctor Who theme. For this, I'm not trying to do an incarnation of any of the doctors, but my own renegade Time Lord. At the moment, my biggest issue is just figuring out how to adequately combine renaissance and steampunk without going too heavy one way or the other. I -have- a Tudor style undergarment pattern, so my thoughts are to make the shift and corset with possibly a…

Pounds, Shillings, and Pence: The Socio-economics of Steampunk

Most people over 50 know, and many readers of Steampunk (or Agatha Christie) have learned from a dictionary, that in the glory days of Steam and Empire, the pound was divided into 20 shillings, and the shilling into 12 pence, for 240 pence to the pound. But what did people actually have in their pockets? What was it worth? How much of it did they need? Knowing the answers to these questions, even in general terms, helps to establish both the accuracy of historical (and alt-historical) fiction,… Continue

Beautifully illustrated, casebound hardcover and aimed at young readers, this tome is also educational. Written by me, Anthony Garcia. Please check it out at… Continue

Finding Freedom *Prolog*

Finding Freedom


London, England, White Chapel District


The lingering night seems to hold the sunrise at bay over the slumbering city of London. Fog shrouds the city in a wet cloak, seeming to stifle the life in the once-bustling metropolis. It swirls through the streets as if it were alive, curling down each and every ally, seeping along the ground, pooling near doors, sliding through open windows like a thief in the night. The smell of the Thames, of…
