Clockwork Alchemy 2017

With Sometime Later and Kepler’s Cowboys just out, Clockwork Alchemy was mostly about vending for us.

All the Vending

Fear not, dear reader, life in Authors’ Alley is not all commercial drudgery. The authors have their own tea service to keep up our energy.


Very Civilized

This year, for the first time, we had a contest for table decoration. We won second prize for best use of banners!


Best Use of Banners

And most everyone wanders through Authors’ Alley at some point, sharing their splendid costumes with us.

But, of course, there was Drake & McTrowell’s “Hot Potato School of Writing™!”

Now with Actual Hot Potatoes!

Although we didn’t get pictures, we did run “There Was Once a Steampunk from Limerick™” for the second time. You can find the clever and hilarious results

We did manage to conserve our energies enough to make it to the evening performances for our favorite steampunk circus,
Cirque Des Bêtes, and Strangely Doesburg.

And what Clockwork Alchemy bloop would be complete without pictures of
Thena MacArthur in some magnificent costume, like this resplendent red number for the fashion show?

Remember that Clockwork Alchemy is earlier next year: March 23 – 25th. We’ll see you there!
