'Michael Pryor loves nothing more than to dress up in his steampunk fine coat, top hat and brass goggles. He is a true Edwardian steampunk man who has never lost the sense of amazement and awe in the way in which he views the world. His world, strictly speaking is contemporary Melbourne, where he lives with his wife Wendy and daughters, Celeste and Ruby. His imaginary world, however, moves through time and space with only a strict set of rules of Pryor's own making, as we'll see later in this article.' (Author's introduction 4)
