The Third Daughter

         This past summer, I read a book so incredible that I don't know where to start, so I'll just put the wedge in somewhere and start prying.  I recently purchased one of those Kindle bundles where you get a dozen or so books for 99c.  This one was Gears & Goggles: A Steampunk Collection. …

We’ve seen VAR, but will it work?

The 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia was interesting in more ways than one. We saw some interesting things like the rain that waited until the Cup is over to show its face, as well as how much enthusiasm for football Croatian president has.

Creating my Alter-Ego

I've been looking up articles about Steampunk, specifically, costumes. It seems like many who dress up also create a fictional character and back story to compliment their attire. With that being said, I think I have a working idea for my own character.

Another Coincidence from the CR&A Universe

      Note:  This is a continuation of blog posts I made on the old Steampunk Empire site, which vanished along with it.  They concerned some very strange coincidences surrounding my CR&A (Calloway, Regnad, & Associates) series of stories.  Rather than try and recreate those posts, I'm just going to pick up where they left off.

      A key event in the formation of the group that becomes CR&A occurs at a world's fair type of event scheduled to begin in May of 1905, in the…

The Importance of Essay writing in Line with Personal Development

Credit Cards in America: A Brief History

Although bank credit cards are a relatively recent innovation, typically marked by the establishment of the “businessman’s Diner’s Club card” in 1950, U.S. society has historically depended upon the availability of consumer credit.
