Your Favorite Characters

Today the slush pit crew is officially closing out the 2016 spreadsheet. We received 763 submissions, and we did keep some data tallies which will be shared here. Our favorite statistic was… who would be the most popular historical/fictional character to appear?

We predicted it was going to be Jack the Ripper, based on how often he has appeared  in our steampunk book club selections. Were we right? Continue reading “Your Favorite Characters”

Submission Window Closing

We will be temporarily closing the current submission window on October 30 so the narrators can catch up on the backlog.  And Andrew has sworn that this is the year he wins NaNoWriMo. Not to worry, we anticipate opening the window again early in the New Year. We have been absolutely amazed by the response to our first submission year. Everyone made it great. Thank you for patience and indulgence as we found our sea legs.

And to those we didn’t pick this year… don’t give up!

Interview with the Mail Room Boy

Gracious returns to Steph P. Bianchini at Earthian Hivemind for the kind interview (we wrote him four rejection letters, so when we say kind we really mean that) with Kevin, part of a series of interviews with Steph’s favorite speculative fiction podcasters. Thanks Steph!

Thank You Listeners

A couple of nice reviews from kind listeners out in the aether this week

First from Steph Bianchi over at EarthianHiveMind, who noted us as one of 5 SFF podcasts worth listening to. We’re very honored to be included.

Next from Lisa at Steampunk Way of Life who was most kind to highlight two of our stories from this year.

Thank you both!

While I’m here, we really need reviews on iTunes or whatever podcatcher you are listening on. It is the only way to break the rating algorithm. If you would, next time you are in the neighborhood, leave some stars and reviews for the show. It helps more than you know.

Ep. 26 Steam and Hot Air by Zach Bartlett


A farm boy tells us about the misadventures of the Professor who is renting out his father’s barn to create bombastic inventions. What could possibly go wrong? We recommend wearing goggles for this one, there could be explosions. Continue reading “Ep. 26 Steam and Hot Air by Zach Bartlett”
