Introduce yourself!
I'm an author and editor at Double Dragon Ebooks, and (unfortunately) a slave monkey in a 9-5 grind. My last book had a Steampunk style, though it's not actually Steampunk as such, but I enjoy Steampunk style and I all being well I shall pop-up at Steamed as a guest editor in February 2010...
What do you hope to find at The Steampunk Writers & Artists Guild?
Ideas - what to read, what to watch, what to do in the Steampunk community, and maybe a few ideas for future works.
How did you hear about us?

(Jack the Theorist and Rise of the Steampunk Empire, if you wish to look either one up. The latter is published under my ‘Barnabas…


Steampunk Inspiration and Writing a Steampunk Story

Posted on May 30, 2011 at 1:27am 9 Comments

A short while ago Double Dragon Ebooks accepted my novella Steampunk Imperialism for publication, albeit with a name change to Rise of the Steampunk Empire. The reason I’m blogging about this, apart from the obvious, is because of what caused the story to be written in the first place. That cause was Charles Stross.


As most of you probably already know, Mister Stross is not a fan of steampunk. In…

Womenfolk in trousers? Scandalous! I shall examine the images in my darkened study, to see how depraved they truly are. Do Not Disturb...
