I'll be talking on Pam Stack's popular radio show "Authors on the Air" about the Steampunk phenomenon on May 7, 2014. She's so pleased with me, she's giving me my own show! Tune-in to "Letting off Steam with the Godfather of Steampunk, Jim Musgrave," beginning in June, 2014.
Steam City Pirates
Steam City Pirates is a novel for
steampunk fans. If any other readers wish to hop aboard, then
so be it, but I wrote it for the psyche of the people who adore to
revel in the world of genteel drama and science fiction. They
enjoy this activity so much, in fact, that an entire cottage
industry has sprouted up across America. Am I becoming a
whore to this new phenomena? Yes, indeed I am!
