Steampunk Fiction: The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec



Mlle Blanc-Sec travelling into another adventure

While doing research, I came across a previously unknown French adventuress, by the name of "Adele Blanc-Sec". Originally published in France in 1976, it..." introduced the title character: a young Parisian writer who is not afraid to drink, shoot guns, smoke, or shoot like a man." (Sounds like most of the ladies in New Babbage (lol)!)



Fending off a "flying lizard" on the rooftops of Paris!

Still, at the risk of doing an injustice to the description (and French translation), I've included a number of links for further investigations of this representative of French Steampunk

An adventure involving a mysterious tenticled entity (hmmmm....)
