Arcadia Snips and the Steamwork Consortium by Robert C. Rodgers product Read This

"Steampunk for Math Wonks"

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.

But what really gets me is the whole math/science underpinning.  I mean,  "steam, Skullduggery, And The Irresponsible Application Of Reckless Mathematics In The 19th Century"???  Do you love it?  I wish I could have majored in irresponsible Reckless Mathematics.

Look, take the word of a blonde—read some of Arcadia Snips and you’ll be LYAO and waiting for more.  (Which you can get around, by the way…it’s available in print)
