Review: Victor Sierra – Go for the Strange

| 10. Oktober 2015

The third full album of Victor Sierra and the third I am going to review and this is getting ridiculous. OK, disclaimer, I supported the fundraiser, Victor Sierra is one of my favourite bands (and their song Mastermind is one of my all time favourite songs) and Commander Bob is one of my oldest friends […]

Concerning my Dieselpunk / Alternative History Novel

| 1. April 2015

November last year I started writing a dieselpunk / alternative history novel. The first few pages have already been published here and on the German counterpart of this blog, you may remember it, it concerned a different outcome of the Christmas Truce of 1914. Earlier this year, in late January, I received an email inquiring […]

The German Tanks of World War 1 – How Proto-Dieselpunk!

| 7. Februar 2015

Let’s face it, the British tanks of the Western Front sure dominate the mental landscape when one thinks of an iconic fighting machine of The Great War.

Iron Sky The Coming Race – Teaser #1 (Official)

| 7. November 2014

It has run the course of the usual channels already, but it would be highly dishonourable not to share this wonderful trailer here as well: And to be honest, if Iron Sky – The Coming Race is actually a well-disguised documentary, it would explain an awful lot! Also, the faster we raise funds for this […]

Excellent Dieselpunk Comic – RumRow

| 27. September 2014

Another thing that came in through the ætherbox, and what an exciting thing it is: A comic, soon to be available in print, that no Dieselpunk worth their weight in fuel should miss. Set in an alternate version of our 1930s, it features wonderfully weird and Art-Deco-esque airships and fighter planes, dashing protagonists of both […]
