The book is the brainchild of Steven C. Davis, long-time supporter of NFN. Steven has visited Nepal with the group, and has raised funds for them with various long distance walking treks as well as through the musical compilation Raising Steam (Raising Steam II is also on the horizon).
Last year's earthquakes in Nepal inspired Steven, who is a writer and host of the GASP radio show, to take action again. This time he was able to persuade his publisher Tenebrous Texts to produce the book - and to agree to donate all profits to NFN. A number of writers, photographers and steampunks generously offered to contribute their work free of charge. Scott and Amy from the bookshop Southcart Books in Walsall kindly hosted a steampunk event to tie-in with the book - and the rest is history, all neatly compiled within the pages of Steam Flashes!
Steam Flashes will be priced at £10 (plus postage if applicable). It launches officially at the New Futures Nepal annual event over the weekend of 1-3 April 2016, and thereafter will be available from Tenebrous Texts and other sources. An easy way for anyone to get involved in both good reads and good causes!
