The Chronicles of the Pneumatic Zeppelin Review - First guest review!

Hey, Geeks and Geekettes, Lyesmith here with a Steampunk book review. But we're going to do things a little different this time.

So in this review we're going to include the first ever guest review by none other than my oldest child, KitKatKate! Leave a comment, share the review, and let her know what you thought. Now, without further ado, on the to review!

WORLD EXCLUSIVE Q&A w/ Creator of Browncoats: Independence War

What. What. WHAT. That's right. The boys of Geekin' grabbed the ear of none-other than Francis Hamada, creator of the fan-freaking-tastic Firefly fan-film, Browncoats: Independence War. Mr. Hamada was amazing enough to take the time to answer a few of our (and your!) questions about his film.

On top of answering our (and your!) questions, Mr. Hamada gave us the rare privilege of getting to watch a pre-post version of the film. I'm not telling you this just to brag, though that's there too, but to bring you first hand knowledge of just how incredible this movie is. Fi…
