Hello all! For those of you who don't know me, I'm the vice-mayor of an entirely virtual steampunk city in Second Life called New Babbage (or rather my avatar is - you can find out more about us on website http://cityofnewbabbage.com  or our YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/NewBabbage). We're assembling a collection of steampunk fiction and we put a project up on Kickstarter to help us get started: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cleanslate/tales-of-new-babbage-vol-1. Here's the project overview:
=====
The City of New Babbage is a consensual hallucination of a steampunk city in a time that never was. It’s built out of bits and prims in SecondLife (instead of bricks and plaster), but it’s as “real” a place as Paris or Mumbai. People from all over the world “go” there daily to build fantastic machines, fight krakens, and roleplay vast, open-ended storylines replete with mad scientists, street urchins and evil geniuses.

We also write stories. With a few exceptions, none of us are professional writers, and few write enough to generate complete works. But for all that, the stories are immensely entertaining and sometimes excellent. We’ve assembled pages and pages of them – and want to share them with the world.

======

We'd love to invite you to help us get the project off the ground by pre-ordering copies of the finished book. And of course, we'd welcome anyone who wants to visit our fair city as a tourist. (By the way: all your steampunk fantasies? They're real and they happen every day. This week, in fact, is the Air Kraken festival - when we take our airships to the skies to help end the scourge of flying giant squid. It's mating season.) Oh and by the way - if anyone on this forum feels like submitting their work for consideration you're welcome to do so. The guidelines are here: http://cityofnewbabbage.com/reader/node/3030

Let me know if you have any questions!
