Art Deco Death Ray Lamp


DeathRay table lamp. Puts out a nice soft light. Great for a desk lamp or for mood lighting. About 20 inches tall. I made this out of found objects and put them together as a one-of-a-kind art object which also serves as a practical light.

Schimmel Fine Pen


A steampunk pen made from watch parts is what this writing instrument is all about. Schimmel Fine Pen is a vintage watch parts steampunk pen that has successfully managed to amass the required funding goal at Kickstarter with almost a week’s time still to go. Made from the finest vintage watch parts, this writing instrument is unique in itself as it has a completely different look and feel when compared to other limited edition pens that we have so far. Since the watch parts like the watch face and small little gears had to be fitted inside the pen, so they needed to be deformed into a slightly roundish, contoured shape rather than the usual flat form factor.

The Frankenstein


D Mattocks’ monster creation is apparently 8ft tall. It’s unclear what operating system lies beneath, but the sheer amount of dials, taps, pipes and those glowing radioactive signs at the bottom are enough to make any Steampunk fan weak at the knees.

The “New Yorker” Art Deco Keyboard


This keyboard features a mix of polished brass and aluminum in a stepped, layered, Art Deco style which was inspired loosely by the Deco design of the Chrysler Building. The name has a bit of a double meaning because in addition to the Chrysler Building being in New York and acting as an iconic symbol of the city, “New Yorker” is also the name of a model of Chrysler car.

By John Smout (UK)


I used some half silvered glass in front and a mirror on the back to give an infinity effect. This looks great when you move past the clock and see the parallax on the receding reflections. Better in real life – it’s hard to photo. I put the tubes on clear pedestals and these each have a neon inside that flicks across each second.

Book Review: An Unsubstantiated Chamber

An Unsubstantiated Chamber by William J Jackson is a dark steampunk murder mystery set in Railroad City, with a few bleak undertones of the superhero genre to set it apart from the fray. The first in a series, it’s a pretty solid debut from another self-published author and also includes a pair of short stories at the end for bonus material.

Chamber cover

Find it on Amazon here.

Jackson succeeds early on in setting a very dark and dystopian tone for his fictitious Rail city in 1880’s Missouri and I couldn’t help picturing a foggy nineteenth century London (I suppose in steampunk that’s a compliment). His tale is bleak and somber and told with deep regret by our narrator, Miss Aretha Tyne Astin, a hunter of paranormals or “Pins” who is herself a paranormal in league with a Gestapo-like military regime. Using a memoir format (at times, almost confessional) Astin guides us through the series of events that not only surround the Chamber Murders case, but her own personal shift in allegiance.

This retrospective narration adequately sets up the plot but I couldn’t help finding the younger version of Astin far more compelling than the older, wiser narrator. Young Astin boasts in her Welsh/Mexican breeding, conceitedly itemizes the intricacies of her outfits, and waxes philosophical about “the hunt” which has become like an addiction to her, obscuring her awareness of the atrocities in which she participates. Old Astin is exposition heavy and a bit of a downer. Jackson missed a golden opportunity not letting the younger Astin’s voice dominate more of the narration, especially the opening of the story. With her proud, vane and politically myopic point of pulled to the foreground, the opening would’ve been far more gripping, while the droll, self-reflective and morally realigned character she becomes could have faded in a little later in the narrative, once we’re safely hooked on the story. I get what he was going for in the Prologue, but it killed a lot of momentum before Astin’s snark could lure me back in and save the story.
