Some More Great Gift Ideas From Airship Flamel

I am almost finished with the first draft of Steam Tour: An American Steampunk in London and my editor has been a busy little elf so many sections are ready to move onto the second draft today. Speaking of busy, my friend over at Airship Flamel has also been busy over the last couple weeks compiling his 12 Days of Steampunk Christmas series. Enjoy!

Steampunk Short: The Mysterious Geographic Explorations of Jasper Morello

This hauntingly beautiful sojourn to an island in the sky is not for the fainthearted. It tells the tale of Jasper Morello, who embarks on an airship expedition and finds himself an unwilling cog in a mad scientist’s plot. It was directed by Anthony Lucas.


Up, Up and Away!

The term aviation was coined in 1863 by French aeronautic engineer Guillaume Joseph Gabriel de La Landelle. The term comes from “avis,” which is bird in Latin and embodies our desire to drift through the sky like our winged friends. Steampunk literature, movies and art are full of hot air balloons, dirigibles (which are filled with gas rather than air) and all manners of flying machines and after writing my Wheels Whir and Away You Go! post I decided I couldn’t stop at just Steampunk vehicles that were subject to the laws of gravity. So check out my gallery and let me know which one is your favorite by leaving a comment below.
