A fully illustrated mad-scientist’s guide to the apocalypse, with particular focus on water filtration and community disaster response. Both lighthearted and serious, and honestly not all that steampunk. First published by Strangers In A Tangled Wilderness as a zine in 2007, then in Italian as a book titled Guida steampunk all’apocalisse in 2008, then finally printed in English as a book by Combustion Books in 2012.
A courageous future lies ahead of us. We wave goodbye, on no uncertain terms, to the invisible workings of the cyberian world. Our future lies in an honest technology, a technology that is within our reach, a technology that will not abandon us, a technology that requires not the dark oils of subterranean caverns.
Consider this book to be your boon companion during the trying times that lie ahead. No single tome—no matter how voluminous—could be complete, of course, but this little handbook should aid in keeping you fed, watered, clothed, and protected from the myriad hazards of weather, human, and beast.
