Welcome to the Victorian Space Age. This site is dedicated to all people who enjoy looking beyond the time and place of our reality. It is my sincere hope that you will enjoy your time here. In our home we have a Jules Verne Room that is room dedicated to the Steam Punk genre of 19th century science fiction. Do to many requests, stories from an Alternate History will soon be available as illustrated books. As you go through this site I hope you will enjoy it as much as I appreciate having this opportunity to share it with you.
Victorian Space Age
My interest in 19th century science fiction goes back to the late 50's after seeing the movie "The Fabulous World of Jules Verne". During the 70's and 80's, I illustrated fantasy machines that included airships, land steamers, flying machines, submarine steamships, off-world cities, planetary and interstellar spacecraft. In 1986 these drawings created an opportunity for me to work as a Designer in the aerospace industry. In 1994 my drawings caught the attention of the woman who later became my wife. In 1997, one of my airship drawings (shown below) was published in the Orange County Register's Focus on Science page. In 2003, I started creating scratch built models of my own design for our Jules Verne room. Each time a model was completed, I sent out e-mails to entertain friends and co-workers. At their urging, I have created this site. I hope you will enjoy it.
