Synopsis

"Being A Wholly Accurate Historical Account Concerning Matters Of Steam, Skullduggery, And The Irresponsible Application Of Reckless Mathematics In The 19th Century"

“Arcadia Snips and the Steamwork Consortium: Being A Wholly Accurate Historical Account Concerning Matters Of Steam, Skullduggery, And The Irresponsible Application Of Reckless Mathematics In The 19th Century”

“In an era of bygone anachronisms and steam-powered ambulatory engines, a sharp-witted street-thief with a heart of semi-precious metal finds herself locked in a battle of wits against a secret plot to bring the city she loves to its knees. Arcadia will need to enlist the help of a reformed mad scientist, a stern suffragette, and a persnickety pigeon to unravel the mysterious past of the Steamwork Consortium - and stop the cabal of sinister mathematicians who would use that past to destroy all of Aberwick.”

“Arcadia Snips and the Steamwork Consortium is both a cautionary tale against reckless mathematics and an accurate historical account all rolled up into one. In fact, the story is so accurate that you might consider it more of a history lecture than an illustrated novel.”

"Steampunk for Math Wonks"

Rating: 9 / 10

I’m a huge fan of Girl Genius.  I even wear a little trilobite pin sometimes.  In public.

So I rejoiced in this story.  The whole steam/airship/oddball tech thing is great, every neo-Victorian fillip in place. And the humor is top-flight.  This is one of the funniest online serials I’ve read yet. The story is very definitely there.  Serious stakes taken with a surreptitious grin.
