Weekend Getaway: Dr. Roundbottom

This site is a little bit fiction, a little bit photographic art, and a whole bunch of steampunk Victoriana. It’s a lot of fun. There are clockwork spiders, ocular fungus, snails with mushrooms growing on their shells, fire faery trees, steam wraiths, park crabs, and more. From the site:

“Julius T. Roundbottom is a dedicated gentleman of science! Utilizing the latest in modern technologies, he currently researchs the native flora and fauna of City Park with a particular interest in the interaction and conflict between native species and invasive species from alternate world models.”

It is updated once a week with a new image and story. There’s also an encyclopedia (that’s a wiki for you young folks), a gallery of Roundbottom’s photographs, and a place to buy prints of the good Doctor’s photographs.

Dear Mr. Klima,

Thank you so very much for sharing my research with your readers. It would please me breately if you all were to return to the Informatitron on Monday, when we will be providing our second edition of Nature Sounds--I believe on your world, this type of entertainment is referred to as a "podcast." Hmph. Not a very elegant word, and I am oblivious to its meaning, but please do take a listen.

Sincerely,

Dr. Julius T. Roundbottom
