The Last Sleep
THE LAST SLEEP, appearing in COGS, CROWNS AND CARRIAGES.
THE LAST SLEEP is the tale of a post-mortem photographer who would do anything to save her little brother from dying of tuberculosis. Well…almost anything.
For steampunk and Gaslamp fantasy fans!
If you aren’t familiar with Steampunk, here’s the skinny. The word “Steampunk” was coined in 1987 following in the footsteps of the Cyberpunk literary genre. It is a chance for writers to explore the futuristic past that never was, which includes mind-bending technologies, supernatural elements, and re-imagining the world during the height of the steam era. Some of our tales are set in fantasy lands, while others are firmly rooted in the real past but with their own twist.
