About this author

Dru Pagliassotti is a writer in the genres of steampunk, horror, and fantasy. She's also a professor of communication at California Lutheran University, where she keeps her colleagues guessing by teaching courses on Venetian culture and comic books and by researching subjects such as yaoi and steampunk webcomics.



Screen Shot 2014-08-31 at 8.51.46 AMMy fiction writing has been temporarily put on hold as I make a concerted push to finish up a book chapter about the evolution of the female mad scientist, with special attention paid to her portrayal in steampunk webcomics.


….Why yes, I do love being a tenured professor and researching whatever the heck I want…!


At any rate, there’s so much that can be said about mad scientists, male or female,...

I wasn't quite certain how to classify this novel, so I'll call it horror, although it could as easily be called science fiction or thriller. The premise is that four planes crash at the same time in different parts of the world, and three children,...more

Okay, you almost certainly need to work for a university as administration or faculty to enjoy these sarcastic definitions, but if you do, you'll find it painfully on target. I'd love to know the author's real identity!
Midnight Nation by J. Michael Straczynski

The essay at the end is particularly fascinating, in which Straczynski tells us a bit about the inspiration behind the comic.

“There ain't a man in the world cares about a woman's past until he's thinking of her in his future.”
Dru Pagliassotti, Clockwork Heart

“A clockwork heart can't replace the real thing.”
Dru Pagliassotti, Clockwork Heart

“Huh? Oh you have a hidden agenda, do you?" She laughed. His straight-faced humor always surprised her. "You promised me you didn't."
"There is nothing hidden about it," he replied. My objective is obvious. I've decided I'd rather have you describe me as 'sweet' than a 'slagging pain in the tailset.'"
"Really?"
"Well..." he looked up from the bag. "Maybe not in public."
"I might be able to confine myself to saying it in private, if you gave me a reason." Taya met his eyes, and he blushed.”
Dru Pagliassotti, Clockwork Heart
