Lost Souls of the Asylum is a Steampunk compilation forged in the bowels of our very own forum. As seen Here , after submissions, editing, and publishing you may now aquire this fine collection. The Asylum is in reference to the Asylum Steampunk Convention that takes place in the UK And you can find out more information about it on it’s main website.

The book is available online along with the previous two volumes of The Asylum Chronicles from http://thelastline.yolasite.com/online-store.php

I found this amazing little find today for those who are on the maker side of Steampunk. Should your project require use of a sync cable for an iPod, iPhone, or iPad, I found this ready-made solution for you. It also happens to be about $5.00(USD) less than the apple product.
