Steampunk: Gallery of Curiosities, The Ape That Would Not Die

It’s a Steam­punk Sun­day today! Tune in to Radio Riel Steam­punk for The Gallery of Curiosi­ties “The Ape That Would Not Die” at 12:00pm and 7:00pm North Amer­i­can Pacif­ic time . You can learn more about The Gallery of Curiosi­ties at .

Tonight’s sto­ry mix­es the clas­sic African big game hunter trope with the mer­ri­ment of the sea­son. What could pos­si­bly go wrong? Well, quite a lot, actu­al­ly.

Author Megan Engel­hardt is short, round, and mer­ry. A lapsed librar­i­an, a dis­placed farm girl, and a tod­dler wran­gler, she lives an hour away from the Sasquatch Tri­an­gle of Ohio. She tweets as @MadMerryMeg.

Nar­ra­tor Richard Elen is a record­ing engi­neer, writer, and design­er based in Cam­bridge, Eng­land. He is Tech­ni­cal Direc­tor of inter­net radio sta­tion Radio Riel, and co-host/ed­i­tor of Design­ing Worlds, a week­ly online TV show about design and design­ers in vir­tu­al envi­ron­ments. He also cre­ates mar­ket­ing mate­ri­als for clients in the con­sumer and pro­fes­sion­al audio fields.

This sto­ry first appeared in Zom­bie Kong, an anthol­o­gy edit­ed by James Roy Daley, in Jan­u­ary of 2012.
