Phantasmical Contraptions & Other Errors

Eagerly announcing the release of Phantasmical Contraptions & Other Errors! This one's been a slog so that we could get it done in time for Gothenburg SteamCon (www.facebook.com/events/632585113547185/), but we all worked hard and this anthology is chock-full of fantastic steampunk-themed stories to delight your Victorian alternate universe senses.

I would especially like to thank Lukas Thelin (www.facebook.com/lukas.thelin) and Åskfågeln (www.facebook.com/askfageln/) for the amazing cover art.

You can find Phantasmical Contraptions on Amazon in the US here (http://amzn.com/1539450821) and the UK here (http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1539450821). 

The Kindle and paperback versions are both available, but Amazon may not yet have linked them, so you may need to search for the title to find the version you're looking for.

We hope you enjoy it, and if you do, please please please leave an Amazon review!

Brief Analysis of the Alphahole Trope

Not that brief, but a very interesting read nonetheless. If you have any Byronesque/Alphahole characters in your fiction, I recommend having a look!

Ode to English Insulation

Oh English insulation,
Troubles a-plenty you've got.
Are you a figment of my imagination,
Or are you made of naught?

I daydream of triple-glazed panes,
With argon-filled hermetically sealed gaps.
I realize I may be insane,
When I hope for hot&cold-mixing taps.

Dear English insulation,
I wish to put you at ease.
The people of your stiff-upper-lipped nation
Are fortunately used to this freeze.

RIP Alan Rickman

Oh, Alan Rickman. :( Another loss to both great stage acting, and strong influences on genres of fantasy and scifi:
