Dieselpunks will not fall!

I need your help. Dieselpunks could be closed by Halloween, but you can keep it alive!

Since launching Dieselpunks in 2009 as a safe haven and inspiration for diesel and steampunk artists, we’ve become one of the largest and most active punk communities in the world. And now, over five years later, we’re going to be forced to close this community unless you can help.

The cost of covering our hosting and music licensing fees for 2014-2015 has exceeded what my paycheck can support. The solution is to raise the funds via Kickstarter.

InSomnia MMORPG

Hey guys,I haven't been an active part of the gamers group here on DP.org. I tend to hang out more with the storytellers (I'm a professional liar.)But I stumbled across this RPG in a dieselpunk type future/floating space station and had to post it here.These guys have been working on the game for around a year and a half. That have a pretty good international crew gathered and it looks like they are hoping to finish up in the next 14 months or so. The graphics are breathtaking. And the gameplay…See More

Profile Information

Hello.

I'm a long-time sci-fi fan who has just recently awoken to the wonder of the alternate history and retro-futurism feel of steam and dieselpunk. Currently working on a steam/dieselpunk novel that takes place in the Texas borderlands in 1918 titled "Fist Full of Reefer." I've been calling the series Reeferpunk, but I would love some feedback on other genre pieces from that time period.

Looking forward to recommendations and discussions around this fascinating sub-genre of speculative fiction. Hit me up.

Having a bit of a fantasy moment at present. Latest smackdown in The Pub is fantasy oriented. 'Tis kinda fun, haven't done fantasy for ages.

Aye still hacking away at it. I'e got the story plan pretty much settled, just got to flash it out now. Rather enjoying it, but got a bit more research to do on Churchill before I finish it. Once I've got it done I'll start chucking it up on Wattpad. 

Currently editing Windblown Saviour so I can get it up on Smashwords and also going to put my short story compilation on Amazon. Too many words, not enough brain cells...

Enjoying your Green Ones series on Wattpad. Hope it does well.

I would love to help. I don't have an ebook reader (my wife does but I don't use it). My busy is so tight I might not be able to finish it but I can give you some feedback if you want to send me a pdf file. My email is so2001@swbell.net.

Strangely enough, I hadn't given maritime tech much thought. I imagine that ships would be useful as refueling stations, to allow airships to make longer or more continuous patrols. Other than, that, I'll have to think on it. I really what you were saying about Ukraine.

As far as your TL, you might want to look into Civil War era torpedo boats. They weren't quite submersibles, but they sat low in the water, yet had a shallow enough draft for the harbors and waterways of the american south.

Well, it's still early days yet, but right now I've got the US remaining isolationist and the German Spring 1918 offensive not happening, prolonging the Great war by three or four years. In that time, rigid airships become more prevalent as Germany uses them to continue trading. The US, the main helium provider in the world, trades with everyone and purchases zeppelin plans, and rigid airships are adopted by all the major powers for trade and logistics. I'm also toying with the idea of the People's Republic of Ukraine surviving. 

My story will take place in the early 1930s, involving the theft of a fighter prototype by mercenaries in the pay of the newly risen Nazi Party. The theft was organized by the test pilot's superiors at Supermarine. I'm thinking War for Fun and Profit. That's about all I've got so far.

thanks for the friend request

Thank you, I plan to share it here once it is ready, and indeed I often think I don't have Illustrative talents either! But practice makes perfect, so I'm soldiering through:)

I bet you will make it, the premise of the story sounds very interesting, and virtual or not a good story is bound to grab peoples attention!  Granted this is coming from a man who neglects sleep and hits the sack at 4 in the morning just because he doesn't want to stop reading, but hey!

 

And yes, I actually am working on something of a story/graphic novel of sorts right now, it's a very rough draft but it is kind of inspired by Crimson Skies! (If I can get anymore stereotyped for dieselpunks I have no idea how.)

At 6:01pm on February 9, 2011, Jacob Savage said…
Thanks for the friend request mate! Also I saw that you sent a bit of story to the editors? Its awesome that you're shooting to get published!

So if you're writing about the Texas borderlands, are you from Texas? Just curious. I live in San Antonio...so yeah.
