Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last you create what you will. ~ George Bernard Shaw, Irish Playwright
And it has been way too long since the Gaslight Hotel had an update, but now with the final days of summer and the approaching ones of fall, we are happy to announce the arrival, too, of some new works and some additions to our collection.
First we have several chapters in House of Usher featuring everyone’s favorite preacher, Cort from The Quick and the Dead, and written by a new Gaslight author, Andii, guitarist for the London steam punk band, Ghostfire. (You may find the link to their band on our Favorite Links page.)
As part of the Viridian Control series (Multiple Character page), Tina has the first chapter of her Opera Ghost. The world is Polidori’s and he makes that clear to Jack Aubrey in London, as the captain chafes against the 21st century and its’ confusing new rules.
Finally, in our continuing Crowe’s Point saga (Crowe’s Point page), Alex Ross continues to find Serendipity in Sharon’s latest addition.
One more announcement: we are happy to post an addition to our Favorite Links, this one to a forum for actor Eliot Cowan – and if you don’t know Mr. Cowan by now, you need to check out Lost in Austen and his Darcy, one that stands up quite well to Colin Firth’s 1995 version! Sometimes in our travels across the Internet universe we encounter those that share our passions and others who may not, but who are so nice that we still find things in common. We are happy to make them welcome…and we hope you will too.
So that is it for now. We hope you’ve had a wonderful summer as we all look forward to coming of autumn and the holidays! Enjoy!
Tina, List Mum

Why We Write
Writing is an adventure. To begin with, it is a toy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him to the public. —
