November 2015 Crowdfunding Roundup

There are some great performances up on Kickstarter this month, and I am so happy to see more of these types of projects. I had such a great time at the Edinburgh Fringe Fest in 2014 when I had an opportunity to see lots of awesome Steampunk and Victorian content. It is one thing to […]

Steampunk Short Film: The Geographic Explorations of Jasper Morello

This hauntingly beautiful sojourn to an island in the sky is not for the fainthearted. It tells the tale of Jasper Morello, who embarks on an airship expedition and finds himself an unwilling cog in a mad scientist’s plot.

Book Review: The Machine by E. C. Jarvis

I was contacted several weeks ago by a new publishing company called Rambunctious Ramblings (don’t you love that name?!) and given the opportunity to review their first enterprise; a steampunk novel by new author, E.

Just in time for Halloween, check out this alternate, creepy origin story for some of your favorite fairy tales. The story opens with a young Wilhelm Grimm comforting his mother and ailing sister with the promise that his brother Jacob would return soon after selling the family cow. Jacob (who is erroneously portrayed in the […]

Book Review- The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi

I was drawn to this book by its cover, which gave off a sort of Steampunkish, old-meets-new vibe but was clearly not set in jolly ol’ England. It turned out not to be Steampunk at all, but was an incredibly interesting world unlike any other I have ever encountered. Somewhere in our near future, the […]
