THIS IS A 21+ EVENT

$25 gets you admission, drink ticket, and Hors D'oeuvres

One year ago we opened our doors to you and most importantly you came. You came dressed to the 9s and became part of our monthly event. You saw and experienced the fantastic roster of award winning and incredible preformers, bands, artists and fashion designers. Without you we would be nothing and thus we now celebrate our one year anniversary by tossing the biggest and best party ever just for you, our beloved guests.

As always, the whole evening has been formulated like a fine elixir to amuse, tantalize and amaze you.

We are honored to have the exclusive release event for G. D. Falksen's debut novel “Blood In The Skies”, a fast-paced steampunk adventure story set in a world of excitement, danger, and aviation. Join Wing Commander Steele of the Commonwealth Air Force as she battles mysterious assassins and bloodthirsty pirates bent on delivering a doomsday weapon into the hands of a madman. Coming this summer from Wildside Press. Penned by G. D. Falksen fantastic illustrations by Jeni Hellum. We are lucky to offer you not only the first glance at this great book but also be privileged to hear a reading by the author and illustartor done in a classic radioland performance style, a treat not to be missed.

With such incredible music acts as "This Way to the Egress!", whose debut album is out soon; and the immortal and world famous Voltaire, who will serenade you of the wonders of being Evil while masterfuly playing his guitar. You know these performers' talent and music, and now is your chance to see them at Dorian's Parlor.

We are honored and very fortunate to have fashion designer Anthony Canney, head of the design house The House of Canney, where the trends from history never looked so fresh. Specializing in bespoke, historically inspired fashion and corsetry, Canney has traveled half way across the contury to show you his latest designs on gorgeous models in our fashion show.

And that's not all. We have dozens of one of a kind venders eager to sell you their great wears, preformers yet to be named (we must keep some surprises), glorious food and drink, and one of the best DJs out there, DJ Dave Ghoul, spinning song after song to keep you dancing the night away. There will be a vintage style photo booths to capture your evening with our talented photographers. We will have a mountain of door prizes and give aways from such places as Wildside Press, Retroscope Fashions, Steampunk Tales and many more all just for you. Prehaps a special bit of cake to celebrate a year of letting us entertain you. So come to our birthday party dressed your best and ejoy the spectacle we have prepared just for you. You will will not want to miss the event that surely will be totted as one of the parties of the year.

Come to the event of the yearCollapse )

Destination Future Reviewed

Destination Future is a strong, entertaining 300+ page anthology. It whisks us away as we read, has us fighting for our lives, longing for love and a place to belong, communicating with rainbows, and exploring even our own human experience with a different perspective. If you are a fan of hard science fiction, you are well-covered. If you are not, like me, so well versed in science fiction, you will find plenty here to enjoy just the same. It is a beautiful, at times tragic, often thrilling, and even uplifting anthology.

Northanger Abbey and Angels and Dragons - IS HERE!
It's here, at last!

A hilarious "comedy of wonders and manners!"

This stylish and clever parody of the Austen classic Northanger Abbey, comes complete with "scholarly" Footnotes that harangue the reader, amazing Appendices, back cover fake blurbs by Regency ladies and gentlemen, illustrations (by the author), a genuine romantic sub-plot that expands upon Jane Austen's original story... and of course the angels and the dragons!

Oh, and there are demons, ghosts, nephilim, hidden treasure, secret clues, and an unspeakable monstrosity known only as the Brighton Duck!

Northanger Abbey and Angels and Dragons

by Jane Austen and Vera Nazarian

Honeymoon of the Dead
So lyda222 is one of the contributors to She Nailed a Stake Through His Head. Always good to promote the writers in one anthology and raise their popularity. So this week's promotion is Honeymoon of the Dead which she wrote under her pseudonym but it's still her. Well obviously. I mean that's a stupid thing to say.

Cross-posted to book_pimp, of course.

Weekly Book Promotion
Since I am promoting She Nailed a Stake Through His Head and since one of the contributors is catvalente and she's come out with a new book this month, it makes sense to promote her book. So this week's promotion is The Habitation of the Blessed
