Based on the Steampunk web comic BOSTON METAPHYSICAL SOCIETY (www.bostonmetaphysicalsociety.com), THE DEVIL WITHIN is a short story based in that universe.
In an alternative Boston of the 1800’s, our world has developed along the lines of Steampunk technology, but with a modern twist. Here exists steam driven rudimentary computers and electronics. And dirigibles rule the sky. But with it comes huge social and political schisms.
THE DEVIL WITHIN is a short story about Andrew O’Sullivan, Medium and Spirit Photographer, who grapples with the horrors of his day job with Homicide Detective Angus Mallory.

Formerly a nationally ranked epee fencer, she has competed nationally and internationally and an is an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy and historical military fiction. Madeleine lives with her rocket scientist husband, David and two dogs, Apollo and Sheba. (And no, they were not named after the characters in the original Battlestar Galactica.)

I wanted to explore other avenues of the world I created with the webcomic.
