Steampunk, the Wild (Weird?) West, Crossover Fiction, and The High Chaparral.

      Yeah, I haven't done much here in awhile.  I'm not much for 'blogging', in the sense of just blowing out my opinions, but this entry has some of that.

      First off, Steampunk and Weird West.   Well, as I see it, not all Weird West is Steampunk, and all Steampunk is certainly NOT Weird West.  BUT, if a steampunk story takes place in the wild west, it pretty much qualifies as 'weird' west.   Whew.  Finally got that said.  Now for the next point...

How to Incorporate Steampunk Style into Your Wardrobe

Steampunk is the newest subculture to be making headlines and working its influence into the mainstream focus. Part of the allure behind it is the adventurous and fun quality of the style, but it also has a more accessible closet than many of the more niche groups out there. It's almost Fall, which means now is the perfect time…

Chapter Seven

Jip was wrapped in a silk dressing-gown, with its sinuous folds of brocaded gold overlaid like a kimono, and tied around the waist with a wide sash. But the kimono did nothing to hide the dark blue skin of Jip’s face and hands, nor the pronged tips of the horns on Jip’s head— still a startling sight…

Resolution and Stories

So I finally had a small heart-to-heart with my dad about my future after college.  Thinking about life after college has always been a source of immense stress and anxiety for me so I avoided talking about it (especially with my parents) or thinking about it as much as I could.  But my dad brought it up in the car on the ride home from hiking and asked me what I want to do and how I feel about my current major.  I told him truthfully that I would be too stressed-out in a high-pressure…
