Hey! John DeNardo at SFSignal has once again been kind enough to host one of my guest posts, and this one supports my new Romulus Buckle short story, “An Officer and a Gentleman,” a prequel set in the Chronicles of the Pneumatic Zeppelin universe. The guest post, entitled “Airship vs. Flying Kraken: A Steampunk Primer” is a fun look at zeppelin crew tactics (complete with Air Corps Division Notes) and strategies when fighting the mythical alien beasties. http://www.sfsignal.com/archives/2014/11/richard-ellis-preston-jr-steampunk-primer/
Here is another guest post, this time from the super-cool John DeNardo at SF Signal.
I pose the question “What is Steampunk?” and then gamely attempt to answer it. It may be unanswerable. And there is also a GIVEAWAY for a signed copy of Romulus Buckle & the Engines of War. http://www.sfsignal.com/archives/2013/11/guest-post-what-is-steampunk-by-richard-ellis-preston-jr/
Hi guys and gals,
I have a guest post on SF Signal and it is all about my Comic Con San Diego 2013 plan, plot and experience (as an unknown author lost in the Exhibit Halls). Kinda fun. http://www.sfsignal.com/archives/2013/08/guest-post-richard-ellis-preston-jr-on-being-a-steampunk-guerrilla-at-comic-con/
