Winners of the 2003 IFComp

1st place

Slouching Towards Bedlam

Cover art for Slouching Towards Bedlam

Star Foster and Daniel Ravipinto

In the beginning was the Word, and it was hungry.

Enter a steampunk adventure set in a London that might have been. The year is 1885. Bedlam Hospital still stands in Moorsfield, a decaying shell used to house the poor and the hopeless. Steam-driven mechanical wonders roam the streets. Gear-wheeled analytical engines spin out reams of thought onto punched paper tapes.

And in the darkness - in the alleys and the side shops - hide secrets.

This work also won 1st place in the 2003 Miss Congeniality Awards.
