We’ll be completely honest with you: we don’t really read blogs. That’s probably a part of the reason why we’re so bad at keeping this one updated (although that’s changing as we kidnap… I mean find new people that we can talk into posting any interesting bits and pieces that they happen upon). However, once in a while we find something that’s so special that we couldn’t ignore it even if we wanted to, and this is most definitely the case with Ayleen the Peacemaker‘s new project: Beyond Victoriana.
Beyond Victoriana is dedicated to the exploration of non-Eurocentric steampunk, and although the project is still in its infancy, there are already some brilliant entries on Chinese technology and science in the Muslim world. There is also a brilliant interview with Bruno Accioly of steampunk.com.br, and – our personal favourite – a piece on First Nation steampunk.
More information about the project can be found on the announcement page, and Ayleen tells us that she is always on the lookout for more thoughts and ideas. We wholeheartedly encourage you all to go and take a look.
