Lovelace and Babbage

A fun telling of the story of the first idea for a mechanical computer. I knew only the very basics, and this fills in a lot around the edges.*. Then, since the basic story only brings so much to bear, the author draws out sever

Fun story, fast read, the ending?

I’m clearly enjoying learning more about the world of VGO. This time it is from the perspective of Vlad, the Alchemical Weaponeer, who is an early confidant of the main character. It’s interesting to see his take on the big battle at Ro
