Like Dante treading new ground by establishing a geography for Hell in The Inferno,Tonani tinkers with the novel ideas of steampunk not as a nostalgic, fascinating view of an unconventional past but as a terrible form of power that could breed mechanical demons just as frightening as atomic power monstrosities.

"There's an interesting corollary of the growth of mass and the corresponding shrink of power, in the extremely good Cory Doctorow story "Chicken Little," which is about the future of advertising, when firms are devoted to the “ultra-high-net-worth individual..." which means there have been three completed sales in total by all agencies combined. As entities consolidate power and wealth, as corporations become people and vice versa (Mitt Romney agrees!), those entities also begin to control how much "juice" things get on the Internet. What you know, how you know it and what you buy, all wrapped up together."

Talking to these self-published writers certainly opened my eyes to the various reasons why one might try it, and how gratifying it can be. These are writers I admire; how their books came to me doesn’t matter. That was an important lesson for me to learn.
