"Steam-powered Dream Engines" - Anthology( recovered post..)

Post by ente per ente »

Here is another post I once wrote and that I recovered... :D

"The last of the mortals…” in "Steam-powered Dream Engines" - Anthology".

As previously anticipated, is eventually available on Lulu.com shop that British Steampunk/Sci-Fi Anthology titled "Steam-powered Dream Engines" by Rogue Planet Press, edited by Michele DUTCHER, Mr. Gavin Chappell ( and also by myself...), where you can find inside, among the many very good Steampunk stories by various authors, that new Steampunk/Sci-Fi Short-Story written by me in American/English,title " The last of the mortals…", set in the 1800s, up north, in the icy mountains of Norway, where the real Steampunk Age started (did it really in this strange world...?) and some very old people are unceasingly mining those old icy depths, searching the answer to their questions, and their needs, in a way…


This story has been written by me and my (unfortunately now dead) old friend Ernesto CANEPA, as it was mainly a very old idea of his that I completed and put on (electronic) paper with some modifications, after a very old boardgame session playing Snowdonia at my Club..

The GREAT cover and back-cover art is by author, and designer, John "DavidsonHero" Rose.

And the drawings inside (one per story...) are by comics designers Davide "Atog" MARESCOTTI and his wife Sara DELLA CASA:

And many thanks to very kind Michele "Bottomdweller" DUTCHER who edited the story, and all the others in this Anthology, and many thanks to very kind Mr. Gavin Chappell that supervised the selection process, anyway!!!

Thank you! Nice to see this one back on the Forum--for reasons both selfish and unselfish, LOL!

For Vila:

the last news...we have been asked for a Second Edition of "Steam-powered Dream Engines" - Anthology to be published by an American publisher...we are waiting for approval from the previous publishers of the British Edition, and if they both are ok with this, we'll give the authors some news more soon, by e-mail, about the payment provided, and maybe some adjustments to be made about the book...we'll see... :D
