What do you hope to find at The Steampunk Writers & Artists Guild?
I've published my short story "Air for Fire" as a Kindle title here. It's about 4,500 words, and is a steampunk take on the life and death of Hypatia, an historical figure with whom every steampunker should be well familiar... I've posted an excerpt on my blog…

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
