What with the gift giving season fast approaching, I thought it prudent to mention this delicious site I just found via my Google Alerts: Dr Grordbort’s Infallible Aether Oscillators and Other Marvelous Contraptions! Just what everyone wants I know — a $700 raygun! Wow! (And yes, the category should have scare quotes around “toys.”) From that site, I was then led to a steampunk site: Brass Goggles. What’s my Google Alert alerting me to you ask?
