Steampunk Movie Review: The Warrior’s Way

This is probably one of the coolest movies you have never heard of. It only ended up in my possession because The Mister was digging through a DVD bargain bin and came across something he thought I’d like. So we saddled up our whiskey 7’s and had ourselves a movie night.

Steampunk Book Review: A Matter of Temperance

By the time Ichabod “Icky” Temperance sent me a few of his books to review, we had already been friends online for a long time. He has been a faithful follower of my blog since the beginning, but it wasn’t until I got an e-mail talking about his books that I knew how he found his way to writing. He and his […]

The Real Dumblore’s Army

In the Harry Potter books and movies, there was a common theme of everyone , no matter who you are, what age, faces issues of ‘fighting for rights’. One of the groups that formed with in the Harry Potter World was Dumbledore’s Army.  We see these same issues recurring as well in Fantastic Beasts. I […]

Book Review: The Return of the Discontinued Man (Burton and Swinburne 5) by Mark Hodder

First off, I want to give some love to Jon Sullivan, the mastermind behind the moody, fantastical covers I always feature on the reviews of this series. So, a tip of the hat to you, good sir. On the cover for Mark Hodder’s fifth installment of this alternative history series we see a huge metal man, […]

Book Review: The Secret of Abdu el Yezdi (Burton and Swinburne 4) by Mark Hodder

At the end of The Expedition to the Mountains of the Moon, our heroes, and in fact time itself, are left in rather dire straights. If you remember, I actually read the books out of order, so for me when I got to the end of book 3, a lot of what I had already […]

Book Review: The Expedition to the Mountains of the Moon (Burton and Swinburne 3) by Mark Hodder

Even though my copy of this book was brand new, it completely deteriorated during my reading. I don’t know if it was the extreme temperatures while passing through Wyoming during my transcontinental drive, or just bad book binding, but it seemed extremely apt given what was happening in this installment of the Burton & Swinburne […]

Book Review: Nefertiti’s Heart (Artifact Hunter 1) by A. W. Exley

Ever since I did my research about Egyptomania I have been dying to get my hands on some Steampunk fiction that played with this topic. When I fired up my Christmas Kindle, I found lots of great Steampunk books out there to download, but they didn’t all hold my interest. Nefertiti’s Heart was the first […]
