Steampunk Hands Around the World 2016 – Favorite Steampunk Memories (part 1)

I’ve been going through a little nostalgia lately… Honestly it started because a lot of things happened last year – some good, some bad.  Most importantly, I lost a family member in the later part of the year. It was a quick and peaceful passing for him and I was glad that was the case. On […]

Review: Lightning Bolts of Zeus by: D. Alan Lewis

This book was great. I sat down to start reading it on a Sunday morning… thinking to get a few chapters in and come back to it later after errands. Well, the errands ended up waiting… and waiting… because I just didn’t put the book down until the end. The ‘world’ of this story is […]
