Most of the reviews single out stories they really like and stories they question including. Luckily, there's limited consensus about which is which. Over all, the reviews have been better then average though the truer judge is that after reviewing volume 1, almost all the reviewers plan to check out Volume 2. Speaking of Volume 2...

I've had a few good talks about the series and theme lately. Some have turned into into guest articles like this one.…
( Note: If google flags it as potentially unsafe, the site's admin is aware of the problem and is awaiting for google to confirm the issue has been resolved. )

Steampunk Originals: Volume 5 (… ) is moving right along. In fact the first sneak peaks are going to start popping up on the fan page ( ). There's still plenty of time to jump in.

I setup an event page specifically calling for kids art (… ). A few more pieces of kids art and I can finish post on Volumes 3+ 4.


I'm still looking for more people to review Steampunk Originals: Volumes 1 +2.
I'm also available for interviews and open to doing more guest articles.
If interested in either, email .

Well, back to work. Volume 5's deadline is January 6th and we have a long way to go between now and then.

About Steampunk:

Imagine present day in an alternate timeline. Key historic events from the mid-19th century played out differently. The technical revolution never happened. Electricity and the internal combustion engine were never mastered. The culture, traditions, politics, and beliefs of the mid-19th century persist and progress. Industry and innovation continue to meet the wants and needs of society ( and create new wants and needs in the process ). Where might 150 year down a different path lead?
