Looking for Things to Review

I am looking for CDs from steampunk genre bands, and books/comic books from steampunk genre, and strange fiction authors to review.

I miss having things to write about – I need something more than forwarding on links and videos to steampunk things, or writing about my own artwork and my boring life.

I also need more content for the Miskatonic Archive, things to review, as well as strange-fiction stories and artwork to share with people.

If you are interested in submitting any of these things, contact me through this site for my mailing address.

For Music: I like CDs – I listen to them while I am doing my artwork. Please do not just give me links to sites and myspace pages.

For Books and Comics: Much of the same. I hate being chained to my computer when I do not have to be.

For Web Comics: Please just shoot me a link and a brief description. It would help you best if you gave me permission to feature one of your strips on the page about it, alse people will only see a link and a description.

For Short Stories: If they are of the strange fiction or steampunk genre, and you would like to share them with the world through the Miskatonic Archive, we would love to have your donation of content. All copyrights remain yours, you simply grant us permission to ‘reproduce’ it on our site, and can ask us to take it down at any time you please.
