Steampunk Weekly - 5.10.10

Amanda Leigh excitedly put her ticket into her dress pocket.

Dear Eva, may I trouble you for one more? I'd like to invite my neighbor, Elizabeth, who most certainly is interested in learning more about the Society. Mary Ann asked as she carefully tucked her ticket and Leggs into her reticule.

Freda poured herself a fresh cup of tea. She did not reply right away if she required a ticket.

Freda took a sip of her tea and reached for her book. From inside the book, she pulled out a paper.

My associate, Darlyn, helped me compile this partial list. They are the names of MAPS members. These people have been quite an inconvenience in causing many delays to our various projects. Take a look. You may recognize some of them. We were able to capture these names from your beta MAPS filter.

Mr Ban Ki-moon
Mr Adams Buhari
Ousmane J Kaba
Mr Zakari Soyaba
Dani Ouedrago
Mr Ali Desmurs
Antonio Gonzalez
Mr Ahmed Tanja
Andrew Abba
Mr Hamza Mohammed
Dr Idrissa Ahmed
stela kip
Younes Ahmed
Mr Kajo Daniel
Mr. Fedric Mba
Tom Coffey
Mr Kuwaiti Zuweiri
Ikerd Yanni
Karim Ahmed
Daf David
Mr conombo arouna
ibarhan aminu
zaki sule
ibarhan aminu
Mrs.Elizabeth James
Salif Komi
Dr.Foladay Dagogo

Freda continued to say, We get names daily and some are aliases for the same persons. It is our hope to put a stop to their shenanigans before they interrupt and delay anymore of our projects.

Fellow associate, Kim, found her files tampered with by one of these nefarious members. She was able to deactivate her Lovelace device and clear it of MAPS traces before any harm was done.

Another associate, Regina, suggests that all Society members should install the special MAPS filter onto their Lovelace devices.

Eva looked at the list and passed it onto Amanda Leigh and Mary Ann.

Eva, We hope that you can have the final MAPS filter program ready for the upcoming Society meeting. I also have this item to give you from Christa.


Oy, Sullivan! Jade tried again to get Sullivan McPig's attention.

Jane rustled some nearby bushes with her parasol to see if Sullivan would be roused.

Sullivan McPig was not one to cater to humans. Except of course when it came to his owner. He also was on a mission. When truffles were near there was nothing that could interrupt his search... except for...

Oy, McPig? Have you heard of the new zombie book? Jade enquired.

Sullivan raised his head. Zombie book?

Aye, we heard it from Book Chick City, 'tis coming September 2010 and 'tis called, Rot & Ruin by John Maberry.

Walking up the path is Sullivan's owner and Celia.
