And with that, we reach the end of the story “Dead Air”. I hope everyone enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed putting it together for you. It was a fun story to assemble, and by far the longest so far!

Like always, the bound version whether it is in PDF format, Kindle or printed, will contain the Epilogue! Which answers some lingering questions and poses a few more for the future of the Brass Griffin and her crew.

However, this is by far not the end! Please stay with us for the next installment entitled “Bloody Business” set to appear on the regularly scheduled Monday!

Until then here is a brief excerpt from “Bloody Business” …

Lydia had just opened the door when Hunter had answered that question for himself. Pushing through the crowd, he caught up to the young woman as she had just pulled open the front door. He gently placed a hand on her shoulder. 

“Miss Olivander, wait. While I’ve not seen her, a second pair of eyes looking out for her wouldn’t hurt.” Hunter said with a reassuring smile.

The young woman’s eyes lit up while she choked back a small sob. “But… why? Allison’s nobody. I’m nobody.” 

Hunter shook his head. “Not true. In any station, everyone is someone. If I was lost and hurt, I’d like to think someone would be kind enough to look for me. Wait just outside the door and let me get my coat. Then we’ll both ask about.”

Thanks gunner! Much appreciated! The next will be starting up this coming Monday. In between “Bloody Business” I should also have Dead Air bound into a single book format. Also on the horizon, I’m seriously considering a wiki to give everyone a little insight into some of the background and characters from the stories.

the wiki sounds like a good idea, maybe drawing in new readers. i stumbled across the story more or less by accident during “red lightning”, liked what i saw and stuck around. you have not disappointed me yet, nor do i expect you will.

an afterthought: i’m not a serious fan of “steampunk”, i do, as above, enjoy your stories and phil foglio’s “girl genius”. i’ve owned and shot several marks of webley revolvers from the late victorian era, as well as the “long lee-enfield” and no. 1 mkIII “smle” .303 rifles, and can picture them in the hands of your characters quite easily.

I’ve had several mention the wiki was a good idea. What with back notes, some of the historical maps and references I use as sources and so on. I’ve been looking into it as time permits.

Thanks again for the kind words! I strive to build characters for these stories that could have walked into the late 19th century and felt right at home.
