Editor's Notes: June 2022

  Welcome to Angelia Sparrow with her western steampunk novel, The Sweet Science of Bruising . This author pushes the envelope and tempts the reader to go on an adventure of passion and curiosities in an alternate history where airships and gaslights abound. Lillian, her inventor main character, tempts fate by attending a controversial boxing match dressed as a boy, and everything goes sideways from there.

Meet Author: Alan Scott

Alan Scott was born and raised in western Oklahoma where he attended college. Later, he moved to north Texas where he obtained his doctorate in analytical chemistry. He now lives with his husband and Boston Terrier in Florida.  He is an avid reader and, after reading his first Agatha Christie novel, mysteries have been one of his biggest enjoyments.

That was about 2006 and my hobby j
