"Blimprider" my friends have named me for my love of airships and the world of steampunk. I wrote these stories, and many others, over a span of six decades. Now, it seems, the muse has moved on, tossing me aside for younger voices, but a lifetime love doesn't die that quickly, so here you find me, mired in nostalgia. Join me for a memory or two, or a rollicking good yarn; I know a few, you know . . .
