A friend writes concerning a role playing game that might be of interest : Space 1889. The description of the game materials mentions "Victoria's multiworld empire"....
Of course, since much of my life on-line is something of a role playing game, I probably won't take the plunge, but I'm reminded that I've failed to follow through my desire to read one of the Chronicles of Isambard Smith by Toby Frost -- billed as "Flashman in Space". Maybe I should finish up the remaining four or five or so unread Flashman books first.
Flashman fans will note that the first song on the new Joanna Newsome album is about Lola Montez.
