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.

Dieselpunks

Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

Respected Dublin based and former Booker Prize winning Irish author John Banville writing under the pen name of Benjamin Black has just published a new novel entitled The Black-Eyed Blonde.  Having good reviews so far (though I haven't read it yet) it's a sequel to Raymond Chandler's The Long Goodbye.  So probably a must for Philip Marlowe fans but you might want to re-read 'Goodbye' first. 

As a taster here's the second sentence:

"The telephone on my desk has the air of something that knows it's being watched". 

Banville seems an unlikely choice to take on such a project but I wonder if there will be a film in the pipeline?  Anyway Marlowe fans, it's out there now.

Hi Abel

Would you give it stars out of 10?  I can't get around to 'devouring' it for a while as I'm in the process of moving house.

I've just finished it, and Banville does a great job of capturing Chandler's style, right down to the loopy metaphors that somehow work.  And that's a tough needle to thread.
