I am pleased to announce that orders are now being accepted for Tales of New Babbage, Volume One! See http://www.babbagefictionpress.com/ for details and links.
The Tales project consists of thirty stories between 600 and 7,500 words, all by Babbage authors. Some of the pieces have previously appeared in online form, but none have been in print. Initial funding was provided by Babbage residents and steampunk enthusiasts through a Kickstarter project, and all copy-editing and typesetting was provided by volunteers. Proceeds from the project will be contributed to Clockwinder Tenk to help offset the cost of running the City.
We're doing an initial print run of 100 units so we can offer them at cost to Babbagers for the holidays: $8.95 each. (Google Checkout will add shipping based on where you live.) That order should arrive the week of December 12, at which point we will turn around and fill any orders we've received.
You can also order it directly from Lulu or Amazon beginning December 12 - eReader versions should be available at about the same time. The price, however, will probably be significantly higher. We'll update this space with details as they become available.
CONTRIBUTORS AND KICKSTARTER PROJECT SUPPORTERS: your copies will be sent out when we receive the first shipment, so please only order extra copies.

A.E. Cleanslate, Abbey Hood, Arconus Arkright, Bela Lubezki, Blackberry Harvey, Ceejay Writer, Dr. Darien Mason, DreddPirate Bob, Elleon Bergamasco, Emerson Lighthouse, Jedburgh Dagger, Jimmy Branagh, Jonathon Spires, Junie Ginsburg, Leo E.
