Product Review: Mirtello Night Black & Gold by Weird Ape

| 17. Oktober 2015

I think I have mentioned this on the blog before, I collect watches. Mainly pocket watches (my oldest one was made in 1855) but I also have a decent collection of wrist watches. I was highly delighted therefore, when I was offered a complimentary watch by Weird Ape. Specifically one of their Steampunk range. You […]

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 […]

Review: The SEA is Ours: Tales of Steampunk Southeast Asia

| 20. September 2015

This is the aforementioned Steampunk from Asia Part II. As you may have noticed by the amount of book features I post, I get a lot of review requests recently, most of which I have to turn down because of time constraints. I do literature reviews on request only in exceptional circumstances. Enter The SEA […]

Review: Cryptex Version 2.0 – Almost like a Pocket Watch

| 25. August 2015

After getting my hands on the first version of the Cryptex and reviewing it, it was only a matter of time until the collection was extended. I am now also the proud and delighted owner of the next generation Cryptex USB drive in a flat, round brass shell which doubles rather nicely as a pocket […]

Review and feature: Steampunk Cryptex Flash Drive and SteampunkJunkies.net

| 26. April 2015

So today’s post is going to be two things at once, first, I am going to review the Steampunk Cryptex USB Drive, and then I am going to talk about the website I got it from, Steampunkjunkies.net. Disclaimer: I got the Steampunk Cryptex USB Drive from Steampunkjunkies for free, they asked me in turn to […]

Review: Rude Alchemy

| 24. April 2015

Already some time back, I was contacted by the gentleman Andy Wertner who humbly suggested his podcast and radio drama Rude Alchemy for my listening enjoyment and a possible review. I did in deed listen to it and will now give a review. This is another one of those difficult reviews where I desperately avoid […]

Review: Jews vs Aliens (Anthology)

| 3. April 2015

One thing first: Jews vs Aliens is not Steampunk, two of the stories in there fall, from what I can tell, into the Pulp Era and could be considered Dieselpunk but I primarily read the anthology for two reasons: The title alone… The anthology was curated and edited by my friend and favourite author Lavie […]

Review: Mr. Strange – The Wonderful World of Weird

| 11. Juli 2014

Right, let’s get this thing done, shall we? Mr. Strange’s minion Gary already contacted me in April and suggested for me to review Mr. Strange’s latest album, The Wonderful World of Weird, which is exactly what I will do now, though it is by far an easy task. The Wonderful World of Weird is my […]

Review: The Machine | This is a Cyberpunk Jewel!

| 10. April 2014

Two computer programmers fall in love as they create the first-ever piece of self-aware artificial intelligence, designed to help humanity. But things go terribly wrong when the British Government steals their breakthrough and teaches it to become a robotic weapon. This is the very short synopsis of the movie and it does not really do […]

Non-Euclidean Æthercast #24 – A bushel of Steampunk Reviews

| 30. März 2014

Since I will very likely not be able to do all the reviews I want to do any time soon, I am trying to be efficient about it and do as many in one go as are easily feasible. For this reason, today’s Non-Euclidean Æthercast’s episode take a look at two Steampunk works, an EP […]
