is creating Fiction, both science fiction and dark western

Things change.  Such as the content in these pages.  What used to be exclusively steampunk is switching to science fiction and dark westerns.  Over a year ago my good friend and collaborator Martin Cameron died, and I've lost the drive to keep our Arcanium Engineering project going.  He was the visual, I was the written, and the vision is gone.

But I love sf and these pages will now reflect new projects (along with some dark westerns like my new trilogy Punished, dieselpunk and other fiction!)  Michael A Stackpole, Lee Stephen and I are in the process of creating a new sci-fi universe.  You'll get behind the scenes looks at what we're doing and how ideas come together, as well as snippets of books and entire short stories.  Writing, creating, the rough drafts and the final stories will be yours to view.  Comments are more than welcome, they'll be vital to developing our vision.  Make that our collective vision, yours and ours.

Some things will be free, some won't, but there will be new stuff galore.  Really.  Hold me to it.  Keep my feet to the fire.

And enjoy the journey.  I intend to.

It's lonely out here, zeppelins flying overhead.  If you accompany me as a patron, the journey will be swifter and far more exciting.  Even better, if I reach the lofty altitude of 513 patrons, you benefit.  A third short story will be added to the Major Arcanium Gazette along with new features and a sneak peek at not one but two novels from authors you simply shouldn't miss.  You get that much more and you won't pay a penny, a farthing, not a sou, more.  Tell your friends, get them involved in this gargantuan project so you (and they) get dynamite fiction and amusing features.
