Welcome to Hidebound Hump Day! I call it hidebound because Victorians are sometimes described that way. It might be hard to decide who the “hero” of this story is, but everything revolves around Cornelis Drebbel.
I suppose Cornelis is a bit of a tortured soul, due to the accident of alchemy that put him in the unusual state I gave this fictional version of the real life scientist. With that segue, I’m going to digress for a moment. Here’s a congratulatory shout-out to Staci Troilo who has just launched a new book! Tortured Soul is the latest in her fabulous Medici Protectorate series. Be sure to check it out.
Back to business… Thanks for being at the station for this rerun of Copper, the Alchemist, and the Woman in Trousers — a steampunk serial with a Victorian setting. I’m posting episodes twice a week, so I hope…
