The Clockwork Millennials

For a while now I’ve been writing a series of stories and essays set in a post-steampunk dystopia some 800 years from now.  The premise it that during the Industrial Revolution, the great machines of the era became self-aware and, in turn, engendered mechanized gods who recreated the world in their image.  Chronologically, the collection spans the final century of the first millennium following this technological awakening.  Each story is a stand-alone with its own conclusion, and yet the work as a whole builds towards a larger meta-resolution with (hopefully) a deeper, longer lasting payoff than the individual stories do themselves.  In order, they are:

To the Gods of Time and Engines, a Gift

When Averly Fell From the Sky

Evensong, Having Been Answered

And the Blessing of the Angels Came Upon Them

All Whirlpools Lead to Atlantis (work in progress)

The Shades of Morgana

The Goddess Deception

Cold Ink  (work in progress)

The Lost Tomorrows (work in progress)

A Child’s Last Steps at the End of the World
