Welcome to

The Blackbird Literary Initiative 

In Loving Memory of a dear friend and fellow Steampunk,

Angela Sawatzky

Good day, and welcome to The Blackbird Literary Initiative. It is a goal of Subgenres to develop a Book Club and literary initiative here on our site. We wish to foster a love of reading and literature. Reading novels that inspire us to explore rich universes of the imagination fuels our minds with new ideas and invention. Enjoying a good book is still one of the greatest ways to share our inner stories with others. Unlike movies, we create the sets, the costumes, the players, etc. in our mind's eye when reading a novel. Everything is just so in our imaginations, often much better than a movie can ever recreate.
