Night Sortie elsewhere

Wow!... A fantastically massive thank you to Erin Cole for selecting Night Sortie to form a part of the 13 Days of Horror competition featured at her blog.

It's a real honour, and reading the other contributions, I am truly humbled to be included!

Appliance lust

Nothing says pure, unadulterated appliance lust like an ice cream machine. We recently purchased a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker (ICE-20RA) from Peters of Kensington.

Apart from the preparation, you can just turn it on and pour it in. Add in a recipe like the strawberry icecream from Gourmet Traveller's Frozen strawberry and moscato vacherin, and you're truly in business....

For some time now I've been tooling aroud with some Steampunk themed writing, set within a waterbound city, much like Venice. I have no idea how it started, and it just seems to have taken on a life of its own in a way. Other influences have included Privateer Press' Iron Kingdoms, and also some of Hallows Eve Design's Unhallowed Metropolis. There's also some dieselpunk thrown in as well. More information about Steampunk and Dieselpunk at the Gatehouse Gazette and at Steampunk Magazine.
