TESLA by Mark Lingane

     This is the first book of a trilogy, and the first thing to say is that it makes me look forward to reading the next two.  The story is aimed at teen/young adult, but as an adventure-loving old coot in my 60s, I enjoyed it a lot.



     The story is billed as "steampunk vs. cyberpunk," which it quite…

Entropy (2)

Bear sat at the kitchen table watching the horses in the east pasture. The clock on the stove read 7:22 a.m. It was a beautiful June day. His father, Ralph, came into the kitchen. He took his cup off the counter and poured his first cup of coffee of the day. He joined Bear at the kitchen table.

Ralph refused to call his son Bear.

"Otto, it's a beautiful day. What do you say to us taking Little Ralph fossil hunting down at the creek?''

Bear shook his…

It disconcerted him and clashed with the royal blue and white tile of the bathroom. The pink color, reminded him of Pepto Bismol. He hated Pepto Bismol. The cloying flavor and…

The Corset

I believe its curiosity. Women, with whom I’ve been involved, are curious. My friend, Calliope, is more than curious. Her quest to know me surpasses inquisitiveness or furtive observation, it borders on prurience. She says it keeps our friendship fresh.

Calliope assists me with corset contracts when I need a set of surrogate hands. We were friends for two years when she commissioned me to make a hand-carved leather corset. She had definite ideas of what she wanted. Corset making is…

New book release - DECAY (Book 2 of the Tesla saga).

It is time to be annoying. New book alert!

I am writing a Dystopian/Steampunk/Cyberpunk teen mashup series. Book 1: Tesla is also on sale ($1.99) and Decay is on sale at the super ridiculous price of 99c.

It follows the adventures of Sebastian and Melanie, two teens thrown together.

Back of book bit:

When friends fail and cities fall, when enemies grow strong taking everything you treasure, what can you do? Strike back.…

The Blimprider Chronicles, April 25, 2014

          Good morning, friends and fellow aficionados, and all the 'punks at large, and welcome to the gateway to the weekend.  It's time for me to turn a corner here, so let me get right into it.

          First, it's time for me to quit dwelling on my illness.  Nothing like that has ever happened to me before, and of course it became a huge event in my own life; maybe not so much in everyone else's.  Anyway, my recovery is well in…
