It’s Straightlaced Saturday, my chuckaboos!   This post complements the era of my steampunk serial, Copper, the Alchemist, and the Woman in Trousers. 

Many people are intrigued by the Victorian Era.  That doesn’t surprise me.  The time has many different “faces” in my imagination — it has something for everyone.  Take the seedy, violent aspect of Jack the Ripper, which has been the subject of many thrillers. 

The idyllic image of the era sets the imagination aflame.  The beautiful costumes of the period add a glamorous face that helps us see stories like William Makepeace Thackeray’s Vanity Fair.   

One face of the Victorian Era we often forget is its “geek face.”  Yes, I’m being silly, but there truly were so very many innovations during that time.  Just imagine being at the 1893 World’s Fair!
