Other Steampunk Magazines

It makes us very happy that we aren’t the only steampunk-based magazine that’s out there. The more of us there are, the more people are being introduced to steampunk in all its myriad forms, and that is a very, very good thing indeed.

In our next issue, we will have an article by Margaret Killjoy which discusses how to set up and run your own magazine, and in that vein it’s high-time we said a little about the other magazines we share the steampunk community with. And so, without further ado…

The Gatehouse Gazette is a free webzine publishing fiction, articles, reviews and interviews. The Gazette is bi-monthly, and champions both steampunk and dieselpunk. It is currently in its eighth issue, and I think it’s safe to say that will be catching up with them (or rather, we won’t) for quite some time!

The even-more-prolific Steampunk Tales is a monthly, pure-fiction payzine (around $1.99) released specifically for viewing on the iPhone/iPod, but also available on the Kindle or in PDF. Now in its third issue, SPTales takes after the style of the pulp adventure magazines from the 1920’s and 1930’s.

From the strictly fictional to the strictly non-fictional, the newest addition to the ranks of steampunk-centric magazines is the Exhibition Hall. A free webzine which is currently being released on a monthly basis, the Exhibition Hall runs articles on fashion and reports from various steampunk events and conventions, and is dedicated to the review and promotion of steampunk as a literary genre.

Finally, we come to the Cyberpunk Apocalypse. While not strictly steampunk in nature, the folks over at Cyberpunk Apocalypse have reproduced a couple of articles from Steampunk Magazine in their latest (and first) issue — where they also have a short rant on steampunk — and are folks after our own hearts. The product of a writers’ collective in Pittsburgh, they also host regular events open to all and sundry, and will be adopting Steampunk Magazine’s Margaret Killjoy as their writer-in-residence during the month of November.

Be sure to check out at least some of the publications we’ve mentioned above. It’s about time steampunks started sharing the love a little more!
