Letter from the Editor

January 18, 1906 ·

It has been years since the onset of the Dark Winter, and Victorian society is finally getting to grips with living in smoke.

A lifetime of burning fuels to power the big mechanical machines, coupled with diverse weather conditions created a deadly pea-souper that plunged the world into darkness.

The British resolve has crumbled, ironically not through invasion, war or starvation, but by the yellow sickly smelling fog that has choked life out of 250,000 people, and closed down industry.

Once again people look to Science for a solution, and are dutifully reminded of what happened the last time they turned to Queen Victoria’s The Department for the Advancement of Sciences for a miracle.

Some claim it is far from a miracle, and call the arrival of Clockwork Servants a nightmare.

As the human race comes to terms with the fact that we are no longer alone, there are rumours that these Clockwork automatons are about to be introduced into homes.
