Venusian Airship Pirate Trading Co. – Vendor Profile

Venusian 2VenusianVenusian Airship Pirate Trading Co. takes the finest available weaponry from each time and location that their travels take them to, that are available. They then modify it to fit their peculiar steampunk technology. They enjoy spreading happiness one gun at a time.  To this date they have never duplicated an item, making each one a individual work of art. Hence their motto, “Distinctive Weaponry for the Discriminating Buyer.”

Venusian 4Venusian 6The Venusian Airship Pirate Trading Co. operates off of a Fleet of Airships gracefully floating 5 miles above the surface of Venus. Having been given a letter of marque by Good Queen Elizabeth herself, we scour the space ways for the Empire. During our travels we have been  become acquainted with a Mr. H.G. Wells and a Frenchman named Jules Verne . Both incredible inventors have allowed us to use their amazing devices to explore time and space.  As we travel through  time we collect weaponry from everyplace we go. Unfortunately when we return to our home time of 1879, we find we are without the necessary components and ammunition to make these odd and diverse weapons operate. Thus, we have to adapt them to the technology of steam and gears that are available to make them operate correctly. 

Venusian 5Venusian 3If you have ever priced the amount of coal it takes to get an airship from Earth to Venus, you will understand that we let nothing go to waste. Every possible thing we find is recycled, reused and repurposed.  If we happen to take a ship in an aerial dogfight, we will strip it down to its bare components and use those to revitalize our found weaponry and refurbish our own airship, the Good Ship Venus.  Presently we are moored near the city of Terminus, in the town of Decatur in a colonial backwater known as Georgia.  We welcome all to come visit our workshop. To create items of their own, or to help us with our own creations. A full costume shop and workshop await the hardy travelers.. Please bring brass, copper and any other interesting items you may find in your travels, as well as weapons, and fabric.  All will be put to good use.

Tracie Jean Photo – Vendor Profile

Tracie Jean LogoI’m a Photographer! I see the world in frames, beautiful frames of forever. Each moment enclosed in its own eternity, burnt on a page, tattooed on the eye and hung perfectly in the hallowed halls of this CAMazing life. A picture can laugh, cry, love, be proud, humble or curious and that’s a lot for some ink and paper.
A multi-tasker by nature, you’ll see me adjusting lighting, positioning subjects and perfecting details (and maybe in between, sipping on a latte). But, don’t worry…your moments will still be your moments because I have a way of blending in. I’ll just make sure you can always remember them!

Rosswyvern Press – Vendor Profile

Ross PressRosswyvern Press was originally formed in 2011 as a primarily non-fiction small press based around medical and scientific topics. When the press changed hands in 2012 we changed our publishing interests to:

science fiction
fantasy, both high and urban
steampunk/ alternative fiction
non-mainstream fiction
paranormal romance

Rosswyvern Press is a small business dedicated to advancing authors and artists.  We do not want to take advantage of authors. RWP is divided into two entities, something that makes us special in a world of special people.

Thin PlacesThunderboltWe are a small press, but we are also a cooperative of writers, artists and musicians.

The artists’ cooperative meets once a month, in person and virtually as some of our members cannot physically be present. These artists review each other’s work, present new ideas and workshop projects together.

While our greatest experience lies in workshopping fiction, we quickly branched out into art and are currently inviting musicians to our 2014 workshops as we move into audio media.
