About Algernon University
Algernon University was founded in the year ____ by our first chancellor, Sir Charles Algernon Parsons. Despite its small size, it has managed to carve out a niche in the world as the birthplace of the steam turbine. Other specialisations include Engineering, Geography, Alchemy, Biology, Mathematics, Ancient and Recent History, Anthropology, Crypto-zoology, and Homoeopathy. We are lucky to count among our numbers Mr. Andrew Parsons, grandson of our founder, whose accomplishments in steam engineering cannot be overstated.
These stories are a work of fiction. Any similarity to persons living or dead, may be intentional, though the details of each character most likely differ wildly from the actual truth. I treat the whole of Human history as my personal grab-bag of oddities and interesting things, and I cordially invite you to research these matters for yourself. The world is, and will continue to be, a place of wonder.
