Recently I have returned to Godzone country, but unfortunately undercover. (A little misunderstanding that involved dynamite, suffragists, and a certain petition). I am fairly sure Dick Seddon is not familiar with the ethersphere, so this communication will remain between just you and I.
It was most heartening however to discover that steampunk is alive and well in even this far flung corner of the Empire. In the beautiful city of Oamaru resides the League of Victorian Imaginers.
They have just had their inaugural ball, and the fashions on show were truly amazing. I was almost tempted to slip on my plures ornamentum and join the fun. But then unhappily I remembered King Dick’s injunction ‘never to come back on pain of death’. Such a bother.
Never the less I will attempt to make contact covertly with this fine individuals. If you are lucky enough to reside within the bounds of New Zealand, you can watch their appearance on the local ether. If not, then take your chances here.
