A Steampunk Well Said: Machines & Humanity


"He meant the machines. Most were perfectly harmless, but there was nothing quite as frightening as metal out of control."
"Humanity, I'm sure I do not have to tell you Your Grace, is a strange animal."
~ The Girl in the Steel Corset (Steampunk Chronicles # 1) by Kady Cross
