Review of chapter "Chapter One" from ShyBob
Review:
Well steampunk'd, in the tradition of the original. Great job painting a picture of your alternate 'verse.
Comments from author:
Thanks - since this was part of an RPG setting there's a lot more behind it in terms of technology, history. etc., and it's helped make the bits in the story more consistent.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Rich
Review:
An excellent job of recreating Kipling's style and language. Congratulations.
Comments from author:
Many thanks - it's difficult to get it right, I think this more or less succeeded but I'm sure that there are parts that wouldn't ring true to a real expert.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from batzulger
Review:
Superb as always Marcus.

You ever thought of mashing up ABC and Night Mail, with Doyle's Horror of the Heights?
Comments from author:
I had the creatures from Horror of the Heights in Forgotten Futures III, there's nothing to stop anyone using them in the ABC universe.

I wondered if people would notice that one ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Hecatonchires
Review:
Thoroughly enjoyed. I remember reading as a kid a story that had flying boats, with props on tall thin towers. I liked the tone you wrote in, sort of a boys own tale.
Comments from author:
VERY common idea in the 19th century, before people realised you really need rather different technology to fly safely. Verne's version _The Clipper of the Clouds_ is probably the one most people have read.

Glad you enjoyed it - that was pretty much the tone I was aiming for.
