I’m currently working on a new book about a space mercenary named Arthur Kill to satiate my love of steampunk, space and ray guns. Ever since I first saw Star Wars as a little kid I have wanted a blaster of my very own – a real one of course – not just a toy! I mean hey, who wouldn’t want to atomise their homework? It’s better than saying the dog/cat/turtle ate it.
Years ago the Weta workshop, based in New Zealand and responsible for the Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and more recently Mad Max Fury Road, created a wonderful fictional world around Dr Grorbort, an intrepid, old-school and somewhat violent interstellar traveller, who also happens to create wonderful ray guns of all sorts. You can purchase these wonders for yourself in their online shop. They are darn amazing!
