I just received my author copies of The Baby Killers, my new steampunk single-title novella from PS Publishing. In order to celebrate, we're going to have a caption contest. I've chosen one of the more steampunkish photos from my Flickr files, so take that as a theme if you like.
First prize will be a signed copy of the book, additional prizes to be awarded at my discretion. Usual rules apply. I'll collect captions in comments here (at both jlake.com and jaylake.livejournal.com) until I get bored with it, then build a voting poll. Please try to limit the length of your entries or they may become truncated in the poll code.
