Murder by Gaslight

quote [ A compendium of information, resources and discussion on notable nineteenth century American murders.

Walter R. Debbins was shot twice in the back, in broad daylight, on Highland Street in Medford, Massachusetts, on the afternoon of Saturday, March 27, 1897. Though no one saw the murder or heard the gunshots, there was enough traffic on Highland Street that afternoon for the police to precisely pinpoint the time of the shooting to between 1:00 and 1:05. But that was all they could pinpoint; everything else about the crime was shrouded in mystery that grew more dense with each new revelation. ]

Murder mysteries! Always fun.

Please don't get all steampunk-y on this post. Not that it should be called steampunk. Steamsnob, more like it. *shakes fist*

I think infernal devices was the first book actually called stamping. The glass hammer was, but they called it cyberpunk. Gibson/Sterling called theirs stamping too, but it was. I feel, more as a nod to Jeter than anything.

Incidentally, those two books (along with Gibson/sterlings) are actual steampunk. that is, they're cyberpunk set in a steam age.

My phone doesn't even recognise the word steampunk. I'm so proud.
