Stephen Lloyd Auslender’s Comedic Tale About Industrial Era Dingbats and Robber Barons Exhibited at Printers Row Lit Fest 2023

The Printers Row Lit Fest hearkens back to a time when its very location was once teeming with printing houses that brought news, novels, and every class of print imaginable to the American public. Incidentally, Stephen Lloyd Auslender’s “The Streamlined Locomotive” is also set around that same period, making it very fitting for it to exhibit during the fest!

“For generations, the Bezelbottoms have elevated the most ambitious, ruthless and determined characters in their clan to serve as their head… and then, there was Theo.”

For some Chicagoans, the Printers Row Lit Fest isn’t just some kind of book fair. It commemorates a part of America’s literary history. On the very streets where the festival is held annually, hundreds of printing houses once stood.

So, for author Stephen Lloyd Auslender, that made it a very ideal event to exhibit his piece of historical fiction at the Printers Row Lit Fest 2023: “The Streamlined Locomotive.” The exhibit was made possible with the support of ReadersMagnet, a self-publishing and book marketing company.

Auslender had spent about 50 years working in the field of mechanical and industrial design. While on the side, he also had a passion for sculpture as much as writing. Together, they combined to create the comedic story told in “The Streamlined Locomotive.”

The novel is set during the height of the industrial revolution. And among the scores of robber barons who have defined America’s cutthroat empires of steel and steam, few rivalled the notorious Bezelbottom clan.

The story follows the Bezelbottom’s chosen heir, Theo. Unfortunately for the whole clan, Theo would sooner live in the lap of luxury at everyone’s expense than do any actual work.

Still, things take a horrific turn for him when the most ruthless uncle and family patriarch demands Theo take more responsibility for the family’s affairs. And should he fail, he’ll be shipped off to the first frontline as America prepares for WWII!

“The Streamlined Locomotive” certainly provided a lot of comic relief to festivalgoers during the Printers Row Lit Fest 2023. Those who would like to learn how Theo’s frantic tale ends can purchase Stephen Lloyd Auslender’s book on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
