Fission Fiction



I’ve got a new idea for a segment of the Library of Illumination, and to write it, I need a little illumination of my own on what a nuclear device would look like. So, lazy me, I went to Google images and found something like this:

nuclear bomb

Not exactly what I was hoping for, but I guess my mind has been tainted watching too many films and too much TV. What happened to all the cool bombs built into stainless steel or aluminum cases? It didn’t seem very promising.

I also found this:

bomb 2

It would be perfect if my genre was steampunk.

I didn’t really see what I was looking for, and in the end, I came up with a device of my own design, after all, I write fiction. I absolutely love where my research is leading me, but after several hours, diamagnetic levitation, Calabi-Ya manifolds, and bubbles of charged plasma all blend into one another and leave a muddle puddle where my brain once lived.

This is the story I said I would blog, so I just want you to know, the research has begun, and the first blog will soon follow.

Erin go bragh.
