AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A steampunk story inspired by H.P. Lovecraft, and focusing on the character of a little match girl.


  • Steampunk note: This story, though also potentially understandable as Weird Fiction or fantasy, can be profitably read through a steampunk lens, wherein the Neo-Victorianism and the character of what is essentially a homunculus are the primary focus.
