After several days of our guest and Rollie assembling the Ecto transmitter receiver they were ready for an initial power up and test run. "Captain, " Rollie said with the enthusiasm of a child at Christmas, "We are are ready to tap the main generators, the crew might notice a slight dimming of the lights but hopefully the enhancers Genevieve brought with her will compensate enough to keep any one from being too suspicious." I had to admit this was a on my mind.We still had a few Hungarian…Continue

Those that know me well know that I was taken at an early age by a love of languages inspired by J. R. R. Tolkien. I will never claim to be his equal in philology, but I do love playing around with words and invented languages. Of course such things need worlds to go with them or they are just dead phonemes lying around in large clumps, so I play with sub-creation of fictional worlds and civilizations as well. All of this means nothing in particular, except that I really do need a life. Who…Continue

What's more, on account of Steampunk UnLimited at Strasburg Rail Road - which proceeds at 11 a.m. Nov. 17 - there's likewise a high tea and some sweet prepare rides. In any case, the genuine essence of the occasion is looking at what everybody's wearing - and what they're doing.
"It's theater where the gathering of people and…Continue

The lab was over run. Soldiers had already made their way into the hangar where the new yacht was being built. The carriage house and stables were being combed through as well. From the sounds below they were moments from breaking in to the main doors of the laboratory itself.
Shankar moved quickly around the room, destroying several pieces of correspondence as well as disposing of several vials of one off formulas to dangerous to allow anyone access too. The footsteps coming…
Wil made his way down the hall to one of the suites in what used to be the offices of the bank. It seemed like only a few days before he had been writing the checks to the contractor for these very rooms to be built. The purchase of the bank itself had been no small fee either though he still considered it quite worth the cost.
He sat in the chair by the small desk, dropping his bag of books beside it. The research contained within those books would be of little use to him now.…

Back in 2008 I took part in my first, and sadly my last NANOWRIMO. I completed the task at hand, finished their challenge, and had written 50,000 words of a novella. I felt accomplished, I felt proud, but mostly I felt glad that it was over. I didn’t have to try and pump out 1,666 words a day any longer. The worst part was that I had not even completed what I started. I got to the goal and just walked away.
Here I am 8 years later thumbing through…Continue

The letter upon His Majesty's desk was marked with the presidential seal from the Grand Republic of America. It was rare indeed for a private missive from President Roosevelt. Rarely were their talks of any significance that they could not be opened by any but the other.
Edward VII sat in his chair and took out the bespelled letter opener. Only with the grip of the properly crowned ruler of the British Empire could it break enchanted seals addressed to him. A quick slip of the…

This article is one of a few that are an endeavor to address the issues inside of the Steampunk group. These issues are not the doing of steampunks who appreciate the way of life, yet of the individuals who wish to just make benefit from it.
It's a typical misguided judgment that steampunk is Victorian Science Fiction. I completely trusted this confusion until I found what I accept to be reality. I trust this in light of the fact…Continue

I find myself wishing I had something interesting to post, other than travelogues of lovely Ruritania, but alas such is not the case. The Muses have abandoned me and I sit alone in my study pondering adventures to Mars and other equally bizarre matters. I have never been a talented writer, so any hope of turning this mass of background material into something more than random scribblings seems a forlorn hope. Oh Ghost of Tolkien, rescue me!

It’s midnight a young man in his mid 20's, staggers out of a bar from the
backside. He pulls his long brown hair back in a pony tail. He stands there

love away from me".
"I know you can hear me Kim I really miss you please hug and kiss are
little girl for me. I can't believe it has been 5 years sense that fatal
night. I miss you both so much". He wipes the tears from…Continue

The Awesome Giant Bear got his start in crime-fighting as a P.I. in Tampa, ursine memory not being more than an extension our sense of smell, I'll say maybe four or five years ago and a pleasant time I've had. Little old ladies that smell of lavender and cinnamon buns showing up with requests to find their little troublemakers, small persons with sticky hands asking why the ice cream truck hasn't shown up two weeks into the school year . . . Life was full of candied lemons and sunshine.…Continue
"What're you doing on the train, to the living?" asked Dusten. "She's being revived" said Big Lou. Bo'Dean then says "We need to hurry up and get her back, before her body starts to fall apart." This frightened the girl, she busted into tears. "Oh no, I'm never going to get to go home" she said in a very disheartened voice. Big Lou then replied softly "you are too going home. Remember, we say who lives and who dies." Bo'Dean goes "No hell we don't, the big man does." "Shut the hell up,…Continue

She was no spring chicken - she had been dry long enough behind her ears, yet she also had so much to learn. Though her curiosity & sense of wonder kept her young enough at heart, it was life that made her mature a bit too much for her own liking sometimes.…Continue
