We’re taking part in a lovely thing called Steampunk Hands Around the World – http://airshipambassador.wordpress.com/2014/02/01/steampunk-hands-welcome/
This is our contribution. We wanted to do something new, but that related to Hopeless, and to that ‘around the world’ theme, so here we are. There is an audio file down at the bottom of this post, and in it, Tom Brown speaks in the voice of Balthazar Lemon. You may well have met Balthazar in Vol 2, and if so, this insight into his mind and history may entertain you. If you aren’t familiar with the denizens of Hopeless Maine, the chapter cover from book 2 will give you some sense of Balthazar as a visual creature.
It’s also a bit of a meditation on who we are and where we come from, if you’re inclined to look at it that way!
Do check out the many other fine things going on as part of Steampunk Hands Around the World. Watch out for #steampunkhands on twitter
