The City State of New Babbage Engineers notes for November 14th, 2019
BOOK CLUB is reading MOUSE TRAP by Carlton Mellick III
For almost 20 years, Carlton Mellick III has been writing some of the strangest and most compelling novels the bizarro fiction genre has to offer. Described as one of the top 40 science-fiction writers under the age of 40 by The Guardian and “one of the most original novelists working today” by extreme horror legend Edward Lee, Mellick returns with a quiet, apocalyptic tale of young unrequited love in a dying world.
Paperback only, available at Amazon. Take a chance and discover a whole new genre!
Join us for a relaxing hour of book talk and tiny cakes on Nov. 24th at 1pm at the RF Burton Library..
BABBAGE WALKING TOUR GUIDE – Fauve Aeon is collecting landmarks and descriptions.
NBTA TRAM UPDATE – Toshiro “Tosh” Tigerauge is updating the tram vehicles and is open to new banner textures for the side ads. Either A4 shape, or a long banner style add for the side boards
ADVENT CALENDAR: Fauve Aeon is organizing gifties to put in an advent calendar. IM her directly or through the Discord server.

now on display at the Fonzerelli Docks, Babbage Canals.
MOVIES AT RUBY’S
This month’s selection is FRANKENSTEIN. Click the big picture of the train on the back wall, which is the movie screen.
BABBAGE CHRONICLES is the longest running story line in town, and where a lot of the original lore came from. If you’re new to town and still feel like you are floundering, now is your chance to get caught up. Girl Meets Boy, a HUD based story hunt, is available at the Cobblestone House in Babbage Square (across the canal from Loki’s Absinthe). This HUD should be a lot less unobtrusive than previous systems.
