"Steam powered computers are definitely the most incomprehensible thing to have in a Steampunk story. I mean 5000 pound airships is one thing. Interesting though."

Autumn Bradley replied to Lia Keyes's discussion Phillip Reeve Calls for Greater Scientific Plausibility in Steampunk Fiction!
"I broke the rules with semi-sentient clockworks in my own writing. That's a function of data storage requirements. The physical space occupied by all the alphanumeric placeholders makes a sentient clockwork machine take up space something on…"

Autumn Bradley replied to Lia Keyes's discussion Phillip Reeve Calls for Greater Scientific Plausibility in Steampunk Fiction!
"And before long someone will call for more fanciful exploration of the impossible. :P   But in all seriousness, self-consistency is more important than adherence to real physics. If you set up a world where the luminiferous ether is real,…"

Announcing the launch of Parts: A Steampunk Tale of Love and Mechanomorphosis

Parts is a steampunk story told in journal format about Professor Edwin Montgomery Grey as he transforms his body part by part into a mechanical android, and how his "mechanomorphosis" strains his relationship with those close to him and with society. It's heavy on tone and transhuman themes.See More

"Can't forget the Strange Case of Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde. I'd put Kafka's The Metamorphosis in this category (as well as adding that it is possibly the most autobiographical story ever written) though it is not in that…"

Autumn Bradley replied to Lia Keyes's discussion WHAT ARE YOU WRITING?
"I have a new project in the works: http://mechanomorphosis.tumblr.com It's a steampunk "research log" of a scientist who is transforming himself into a clockwork android part by part, and how it strains his relationships with others."

Autumn Bradley replied to Lia Keyes's discussion WHAT'S THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE YOU'VE FOUND WITH WRITING STEAMPUNK?
"For me, it is balancing tone and readability. I am targeting YA, and I have a great deal of faith in their ability to understand, but I have a tendency to use SAT words in my writing, especially when I am going for a semi-authentic Victorian era…"

Autumn Bradley replied to Ettrick's discussion Automata - Self-aware?
"Well, any discussion of machine awareness must also include some discussion of machine learning. What degree of self-awareness is necessary? I can open up my computer's device manager and I am immediately informed that my computer is aware of…"

Autumn Bradley replied to Lia Keyes's discussion WHAT ARE YOU WRITING?
"Lewis Mulligan and the Pandemonium Engine   YA Steampunk adventure set in and alternate history Earth where Babbage's engines were finished, and Tesla's dreams of a world electrical network came true, sparking an early information age."

Autumn Bradley replied to Jim Placzkiewicz's discussion Plotting...So how's it done anyway?
"My work has been different each time. It also depends on the intended length of the work. I typically have a beginning and an end in mind, as well as a handful of scenes or moments I want to work in along the way, and then I set up a plot that lets…"

Chicago Museum of Science and Industry

Recently I visited Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry. Anyone who has interest in steampunk should really pay a visit sometime. They have a lot of modern exhibits, but they also have a significant collection of artifacts from the early electrical era on display. They also have the first stainless steel passenger rail car, the Pioneer Zephyr on display. Lots of early aviation stuff as well. …See More

The Azure Cat

I'm in because I drew blueprints for a water ship / aerial / spacecraft, It runs on steam, and utilizes a mechanical energy storage and generation device.Within the vessel is a garden, for entirely self-contained food.The one aspect I haven't entirely worked out is H2O generation, i.e. fuel, or perpetual fuel.The ship also has a gamer's deck, in the event things get dull, or the moment strikes.Happy Sailing,SJSee More
