On the RRF podcast, he has interviewed over a hundred members of the Steampunk Community, including writers, and other creators. After discussing, Steampunk for nearly a decade, he thought it was time to write example stories that go beyond the typical tropes of the Steampunk genre. This became a short story series called the Association of Ishtar. A multiverse of Loveholmsian adventure and Steampunk-inspired horrors. The ambition is to create a multiverse to which various writers can contribute and in which the reader takes the place of an investigator exploring the multiverse while unlocking the secret of the Association of Ishtar.
