Steampunk fiction, reviews and interviews

submissions/ interviews/ reviews

We aim to support writers, artists, musicians, makers and creators, if you would like to feature here please get in touch. Although we will do our best to email you with a link when your review / interview post is up on the blog,  due to the amount of reading, reviewing, writing and work and family commitments we have, it simply isn’t always possible. We therefore humbly ask that, as a courtesy, you follow and support our little blog and keep an eye out for your posts so that you can share them around your own social network.


Find out about our latest call for submissions of Steampunk short fiction from new and established writers at our submittable page. Our current call for TALES OF THE HEX SLINGERS ends on September 3rd, click here for full details.



We are more than happy to take part in blog tours for books we love – let us know the what, where and when by sending an email titled ‘blog tour?’ to



Our review schedule is now open for September 2018 onwards.  If you have a book you would like us to review and you don’t mind being added to this ongoing list, please send an email enquiry titled ‘review?’ to We only review books we love, if we can’t write a positive review for some reason we will let you know rather than publish a negative one.



We love interviewing people via email! If you would like to be interviewed by our lovely witch in her ‘soup kitchen’ please send an email titled ‘soup?’ to



Apologies, these are now by invitation only. If you are a writer and have featured in the morning cuppa or soup kitchen between January and August then you will be invited to submit a short story or promotional book extract to feature in our Pipe and Slippers posts which run on Fridays from September to January.
