The Laboratory under Lincoln

How the Story Happened
The Laboratory under Lincoln is the first adventure of A.W.E.S.O.M.E. – Asylum Workshop Experimental Scribes Of Mechanical Escapades.

A.W.E.S.O.M.E. was founded at the Asylum in Lincoln in September, 2013. A number of Steampunks gathered to take part in a writing exercise like no other. Aided, abetted and led by Chrystal (also known as the author Meg Kingston), they formed the storyline that became this tale. From selecting the characters involved to designing the locations and the action of the story, this group truly devised their own tale.

After the event, Meg undertook the translation of the story notes into the action adventure above, with collaboration of the other participants.

A.W.E.S.O.M.E. will continue to meet at both the Lincoln Asylum and Steampunk at the Seaside, with the intention of writing further chapters in the story of the adventurers they represent.

The next scheduled meeting of A.W.E.S.O.M.E. will be at Camber Sands Holiday Park, as part of Steampunk at the Seaside on the last weekend of March, 2014.

Meg Kingston is the author of Chrystal Heart and is currently working on a sequel. Further information at:

With many thanks to all the wonderful participants at our writing workshop in Lincoln. I look forward to seeing some of you again next year.
