Ah, yes. December is here. Time for heartwarming tales of curmudgeonly misers, plucky urchins, and all that goes with it. Author and narrator John Longenbaugh brings us a tale of an inventor of clockwork marvels that fill a fabulous mechanical theater, and the quiet war he wages with his natural enemy – a child.

John Longenbaugh is a Seattle-based writer and playwright, and the creator of the Steampunk adventure serial BRASS, which is available as an audio drama, a series of stage plays and a short film. For more on John go to johnlongenbaugh.com, and for more on BRASS go to Battlegroundproductions.org.
