The Future Of SteamPunk Magazine, Part II

I am sad to announce that I am stepping down as primary editor of SteamPunk Magazine. Suffice it to say that, for a number of reasons, I am not able to continue running the magazine. Fortunately, someone has stepped up to take the mantle. It’s no small thing to be the volunteer editor of a popular magazine, and I salute her courage. Hopefully, she’ll introduce herself on here soon. Expect some changes, some new love going into the project, and most importantly, expect new issues. I’ll still be around as layout editor… layout is what I loved the most.

Steampunk has come a long way from where it was when we started the magazine two years ago. It’s a new landscape, one both exciting and alien to me. I still have hope for the genre. The waves of commercialism will bash up against our hull, but we steampunks are a stalwart bunch and we’ll hold fast. Hell, we’ll grow stronger: every day another person gets involved with steampunk and recognizes something valid, realizes it provides symbols that help them understand themself. Because steampunk is more than a meme. Steampunk is a reimagining of the world. May it live forever.

As for myself, besides laying out SteamPunk Magazine, I’ve been collaborating with a few others on a new journal, Post-Civilized, which plans to be a resource for those looking to enact a post-civilized approach to life. I’ve got a few other projects in the works, including a book of interviews and plenty of my own fiction. I’m sure I won’t be a stranger. To keep up with my other projects, I’ve a blog over at Birds Before The Storm and I’m always still involved in Strangers In A Tangled Wilderness

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Killjoy

  1. I’m glad we’re not loosing our only Margaret Killjoy. Word on the street is they’re hard to come by due to the economy’s current state.

  2. Margaret,

    thank you so much for bringing SteamPunk Magazine into the world in the first place. We are all hugely grateful.

    I wish you well in everything you do and look forward to many more issues of the magazine.

  3. Margaret,

    Thank you for all the hard work you’ve put into organising Steampunk Magazine and getting it up and running. We are, as Mr. Reppion says above, all hugely grateful.

    Undoubtedly this great subculture we all love so much would be poorer by far were it not for Steampunk Magazine and I look forward with great anticipation to reading future issues.

    James
