Before I post these winners, please let me say that this is probably the toughest contest I’ve ever judged. There were so many excellent stories that were submitted, that it was very difficult. In the end, I did choose a story.. and was so enamoured of several other stories that I had to give runner up a tie. There were also a few stories that I really felt stood out so I’m giving honorable mentions (even though I can’t provide a prize).
All in all, these are marvelous stories and provide a wonderful look into the collective mind of the steam-minds.
* Revolution – Stargirl Macbain
* Solve et Coagula – Kenelm Constantine
* Change of Altitude – Blackhawk60 Sikorsky
* Alloy – Aeolus Cleanslate
* Leviathan – Rikka Koi
Congratulations to everyone, not just the winners. This is a large undertaking and a wonderful thing to be proud of. I shall have the ThInc books and Notecard versions prepared in a couple of weeks and they will be available at the R. F. Burton Library.
If there were a hard copy version available in RL, would you be interested in it?
