My steampunk flash story Father Francis and His Mechanical Bees is up today at Every Day Fiction. I had a lot of fun writing this one, and I hope that comes across in the reading.

I'm down the five star review.
Er, not a review I suppose as much as a request for more. [Wink]

Delightful little flash.

There is sufficient depth to the characters and the invented world that I come away with the sense that this is a vignette from a much longer work (perhaps novel).

I have not as yet read much steampunk, but I was reminded of the young adult steampunk novel Leviathan by Scott Westerfield.

Tip of the kippah to you, Jennifer, on another fine story and sale.

Respectfully,
Dr. Bob

Congrats. Speaking of reviews...I can't wait to see what my reviewer thinks of your DSF story.

Thanks. This story is, at least for the moment, the top-rated story at Every Day Fiction for this year and No. 3 for all time. Holy-moly.

Snapper, I'm curious too, with a mix of anticipation and dread. [Smile] I hope to give your DSF reviewers plenty of fodder in the coming years.
