in which kevin tries something new (and pretends you care)

Spending this morning reading Murakami got the muse stirring again. ("Oh, it's you," it said, drowsily, "I thought you had forgotten all about me. Don't you have, like, coding to do or something?") I have an idea for a new story. It's funny that this should happen, because the story is decidedly not Murakami-esque. In fact, it's not even new--it's an idea I turned around in my head for a while last year, after starting work on the screenplay for a silly black-and-white steampunk film that never went anywhere.

So what's so special about this new idea? It's one that requires actual world-building. :D

Details are still being fleshed out, but as of now it's a Silver Age style sci-fi story...set in an alternate universe late 18th century New Jersey (post-Revolutionary War, at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution)...with giant yetis. I guess you could call it anti-Victorian steampunk horror.

Fuck literary credibility! I'm going full-blown genre hack.
