Review: Space 1889 & Beyond – Conspiracy of Silence

| 20. Oktober 2012

Conspiracy of Silence, the first book in the second season of Space: 1889 & Beyond is thus far the one I found most challenging to read. The novel it starts so badly for our beloved pair of adventurers, Nathanial and Annabelle. They make it back to earth only to find themselves in the center of […]

Review: Sunday Driver UK – The Mutiny

| 25. August 2012

Another Steampunk album, another different style, another work I cannot complain about. This time it is The Mutiny by Sunday Driver UK, one of the more prominent bands in the Steampunk scene. Where to start? The Mutiny is a beautiful and very atmospheric album. It conjures visions of a slightly alternative 1920’s speakeasy filled with mobsters, airship […]

Houston, we have a boson! A historic moment in Physics!

| 4. Juli 2012

Daily Steampunk joins scientists and science enthusiast around the world to congratulate CERN, the people at the LHC and everybody else involved in the hunt of the Higgs boson on finding a new boson that matches the predicted attributes of the Higgs boson. To quote Peter Higgs: …really the most incredible thing that has happened […]

Review: Strange Artifact – The Antikythera Mechanism

| 17. Juni 2012

The Antikythera Mechanism is Strange Artifact’s first long player. Strange Artifact themselves are Japan’s first full-fledged Steampunk band. I must admit, of all the album reviews I have made thus far, The Antikythera Mechanism was the most difficult. For one, although I speak a little Japanese, it is nowhere sufficient to understand what MaRy is […]

Review: Diesel City by Stefan

| 7. Juni 2012

Diesel City is a difficult book to review, it is a work of art, created by the images it contains. To do it complete justice would mean to describe and review every single image of its 200 pages in detail. Instead, I have to make do with a woefully short review of this mind-boggling, stupendous […]

Featured Inventor: Admiral Ravensdale

| 29. April 2012

Today I present to you an invention by a personal friend of mine. Admiral Ravensdale is one of the most active and renowned German Steampunk inventors and modders. This very likely means you have not heard anything about him until now. It also means that from now on you have no excuse anymore. So, without […]

Iron Sky Review – Watch this Movie!

| 6. April 2012

At long last I got the chance to see the movie with the most effective and successful viral marketing and crowd funding campaign ever. Iron Sky – Space Nazis from the Moon on a mission to conquer the Earth. And now I have to come up with a review and not put too many spoilers […]

Review: Aladdin and his Wonderfully Infernal Device

| 29. Februar 2012

Aladdin and His Wonderfully Infernal Device, Tee Morris’ Steampunk take on the classic Arabian Night’s Tale of Aladdin and his magic lamp is a nice short read, so this review will also be short. If you know the original story (I actually had it on a vinyl record when I was a kid, now do […]

Review: The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing – Now That’s What I Call Steampunk

| 23. Februar 2012

Recently I posted a message regarding the renaming of The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing’s album Now That’s What I Call Steampunk to The Album That Can Not Be Named For Legal Reasons. Well, I am fortunate enough to be the proud owner of an original edition version of the album. So, […]

Review: Empire State by Adam Christopher

| 13. Januar 2012

At times I have these premonitions, I simply know when something is going to be good. When I first read about Empire State by Adam Christopher on the Angry Robot Books blog, I thought it could be a fun read. Turns out, my premonition was a bit off the mark. Empire State is not a […]
