The Hunchback Assignments - Book Trailer

A gripping new series combines Steampunk, spying, and a fantastic Victorian London.

The mysterious Mr. Socrates rescues Modo, a child in a traveling freak show. Modo is a hunchback with an amazing ability to transform his appearance, and Mr. Socrates raises him in isolation as an agent for the Permanent Association, a spy agency behind Brittania’s efforts to rule the empire. At 14, Modo is left on the streets of London to fend for himself. When he encounters Octavia Milkweed, another Association agent, the two uncover a plot by the Clockword Guild behind the murders of important men. Furthermore, a mad scientist is turning orphan children into automatons to further the goals of the Guild. Modo and Octavia journey deep into the tunnels under London and discover a terrifying plot against the British government. It’s up to them to save their country.

Question, Queries and Posers

It has been suggested that I should sell my hats. The problem is that I have absolutely no idea what to charge for them. The hats themselves are costume hats and the embellishments on them I had either made or purchased at retail. So my questions are, hypothetically speaking, if you were in the market for a hat such as these, how much would you be willing to pay for them? Basically, based off of what I do, what would you all consider to be fair market value for them?Help!See More

On the Moon with J. Nasmyth

I have just added a post to my blog at Net Advance Retro which might be of interest to some of you. It concerns the work of the Victorian artist/engineer J. Nasmyth, who used plaster models to make astonishingly life-like photographs of landscapes on the moon.See More
