As most of you will know, I'm on a bit of a steampunk obsession at the moment. After reading Cherie Priest's Boneshaker and Dreadnought (and eagerly awaiting the chance to get my hands on Ganymede and The Inexplicables) I'm always on the lookout for new steampunk things that take my fancy, especially when pledging on Kickstarter. The Lazarus Machine is one pledge to.

The Lazarus Machine is an 8-part steampunk web series that features all the good things you'd expect from a steampunk adventure; goggles, zeppelins, alternate technologies - the works.
They've also got some brilliant steampunk musicians lined up including Professor Elemental The Cog is Dead and Vernian Process (if you're unfamiliar with steampunk music, have a read of my guest post at Tor Books).

The Kickstarter hopes to raise £85,000 in order to pull this project off, so it needs more pledges (don't let me down, people. I want a British steampunk web-series).

There's some awesome concept art for the series made by Mark Molnar, who has worked with the likes of Weta Workshop and Lucasfilm.
