Hi there, shieks and shebas. Welcome to Jazz Age Wednesdays.  Horsefeathers!  Look at that date…  June is more than half over, and I still haven’t gotten back to work on finalizing my third Roaring Twenties novel about Pip and Granny.

Maybe it’s hard to have my head in two different eras at once (meaning the Brother Love serial is set in the late 1950s).  Maybe it’s that I’ve had “issues” (I’ve blogged about some) in my new location.  Maybe it’s a lot of work for one person to move across the country, and do all the work of settling into an older home.  (At this rate it will take me two years.) 

Anyhow, I’ll stop beating my gums and get to the point.  While I try to get back to the Jazz Age and finalize A Ghost in the…

LULU Arrival 2.Lulu’s clumsiness sends the train to 1 million years BC. Art by Rob Goldstein

It’s finally time!  I’ve been promising you a short story with illustrations by Rob Goldstein.  Lulu, Gramps, and Valentino are joined by a couple of unexpected characters in this one episode story.  I call it “One Million Years B-Lulu.”  It’s a little riff on “One Million Years BC,” which featured Raquel Welsh.  Don’t ask me why that particular scenario popped into my head.  I’ve told you that I’m just not wired right. The three random things Rob gave me to drive the story are velociraptor, stone axe, and capacitors.

Rob is featuring the story as a guest post today at Sue Vincent‘s blog, so I hope you’ll click over and visit them.  I’m posting it here as well.  Without further ado…

All aboard!

I know I’m away from my blog but Teagan’s
finale to Hullaba Lulu inspired a closing video.

How does one summarize seven months of great
story telling in less than two minutes?

If you haven’t met Hullaba Lulu head for Teagan’s

I think you’ll like it. 🙂

You’ve arrived at the end of the line, Shieks and Shebas!  This is the final episode for the Jazz Age Wednesdays serial Hullaba Lulu.  

Well it’s all right, that we’ve been riding around in the breeze. Maybe somewhere down the road aways, you’ll think of me, wonder where I am these days.  Well it’s all right, we’re going to the end of the line.

This is the dieselpunk series, set in the Roaring Twenties authored by yours truly, and illustrated by Rob Goldstein… and we’re at the end of the line!

You can do catch-up reading for most of the past chapters at this post: Real World Tech Review which has links through episode 11.1. 

Warning — this is a long chapter, but I didn’t think it suitable to divide it into more than one episode.  Save your place and…
