      I suppose Buffalo Bill (William F. Cody) is the person who ties everyone in the title together, so I listed him first.  I believe all of these people qualify for an entry in the…Continue

Programming language question

      OK, so not exactly steampunk, but I've had good results getting answers from other steampunks in the areas of cryptography, botany, and entomology, so I'm giving this a try.      For a good 30+…Continue

Steam Powered Machine list...

Profile Information

About you:
I am cautious and suspicious by nature. Also terribly lazy. I spend a great deal of time inside my own head. I believe in Truth, Freedom, Justice, and Hope. I sleep a lot, and that lets me dream.

Since 2012 I have managed to type up several stories which take place in a steampunk universe. I suppose that makes me a writer, but I prefer the term "storyteller". I had some of these tales posted on the old steampunk empire site. I'm not certain what to do about them, at this point.

Steampunk, and Musical Machines

      [This was originally a post in a group I had created on the old Steampunk Empire website, dedicated to classical music, and its relationship to steampunk.]-      Machines used to play music are nothing new.  Carillons have been automated since at least the 17th century, and small music boxes have been around since at least the 18th.  By the 19th century, musical machines of many types began to be produced.  One of the most famous was the Panharmonicon, invented by Johann Nepomuk Maelzel. …See More

Coincidence #2 from the CR&A universe.

Posted on February 28, 2020 at 2:36pm 0 Comments

      OK, I've described coincidences 1, 3, and 4, so I may as well reiterate #2.

      AFTER thinking up the character of Adele Calloway, giving her a romantic relationship with the character based on me, and deciding on her birthday (September 23, 1882), I decided to see how "we" relate according to the so-called "Chinese Zodiac".  In simplest terms, this assigns an animal to a person according to the year of their birth, and indicates certain characteristics which a person with a…

Another (minor) coincidence from the CR&A universe.

Posted on February 28, 2020 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

      I've mentioned some of these things before, and here is another one.

      The character of Adele Calloway has a number of highly developed skills that enable her to function successfully in a Wild/Weird Western Steampunk environment.  She is an expert horsewoman, adept with a lariat, can track, and 'read sign' to an extraordinary degree, is fluent in American Indian sign language, and is highly proficient with handguns.  She is also not shy about pointing out her abilities to…
