For the past three years, the authors participating in Clockwork Alchemy, San Jose, California’s steampunk con, have put together short story anthologies the proceeds from which are donated to various organizations promoting literacy. The concept is simple–each author writes two short stories separated by a duration of time. Two years ago, it was Twelve Hours Later. Last year it was Thirty Days Later. This year the theme is Some Time Later–giving the authors a bit more chronological leeway.
I am honored to have been able to participate in this event for the last two years, and proud to announce that this year’s anthology launched last weekend at Clockwork Alchemy 2017 and is now available.
My stories feature a band of rather hapless air pirates searching for the lost treasure of Atlantis. These same pirates also feature prominently in my recently launched steampunk novel The Secret Notebook of Michael Faraday.
