FanArt Contest: Steampunk Universe

Every Friday a new piece of artwork from the fanart contest will be posted on this website!

Steampunk Universe by Erica Lange

“An AU of Throne of Jade where Laurence and Temeraire come to China and find not just lots of dragons but airships. (Which I am now heartbroken to not have actually done in canon and may try to find some way to work in after all!)” — Naomi

Each of these weekly pieces of art will be a part of a small, Subterranean Press hardcover with a 16-page full color gallery, and it will include a total of 32 pieces, with about 20,000 words total of new fiction included. I will probably end up combining and writing slightly longer stories for more than one piece, but each one will at least get a drabble’s-worth to its name!

Sub Press will produce a limited edition of 400 leatherbound copies signed by me (probably around $45), and somewhere between 1000-2000 hardcovers (around $20-25). And I will eventually be putting up the stories themselves online at least once the book sells out, so if these are out of your range, do not fear! You will get to read the stories! The book should hopefully be out before the end of this year, but we’ll see.

To be notified when this book goes on sale, join the Sub Press newsletter HERE!

Until next week!

Wow, but now we have more questions. Look at the straps – what type of injuries might occure with that arrangement. The closest I could think of was what parachutes might do to the body. That’s how I found out that the first design was done by L. DaVinci in 1408 and the first parachute dive was completed in Paris in the year 1797. Maybe parachutes are being developed in Temeraire’s world and be standard issue to all aviators and the arial version of marines by the end of the series?
