DIY Vintage PC

Some people (like myself) prefer to modify their PC cases to suit their aesthetic. But for this fellow, that’s small potatoes. Matt of DIY Perks knows how to build a steampunk PC. A real steampunk PC. From scratch. That’s right, using leather, brass pieces from eBay, and a welding torch,...

Mortal Engines Full Trailer

Take a look at the full trailer for “Mortal Engines.” The movie is based on the book by Philip Reeve and is directed by Peter Jackson, who directed “Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit.” I really hope the movie is as great as the trailer seems to suggest, and this...

The Clockwork Horseman

My steampunk fantasy short story, The Clockwork Horseman, is published and available now on both Amazon and Lulu and it can be found in the anthology Devil’s Armory III. Alas, there does not appear to be an e-book version! Oh well. The story will one day be available in e-book...

It is a beautiful blend of Gothic horror and steampunk aesthetics, complete with iron dirigibles, a grungy Victorian city, a mad scientist, a tragic hero, and a horrifying monster.

Steampunk Amplifier

To go along with my steampunk speakers, I have now put up my Instructables tutorial for putting together a nice little steampunk audio amplifier. This is the amplifier which I have mounted on the hutch over my desk, through which I play all music an audio from my PC. This...

Steampunk Tesla Watch

Take a look at this cool steampunk Tesla watch from ThinkGeek. And it’s actually affordable. I’m not sure if the vacuum tubes really do anything other than light up, but it’s a nice effect. My only fear would be loosing the key used to actually wind the watch…
