Biopunk Project Gropes With Slimy Tentacles For Submissions

Earlier this month, I received an email from Christine Danse, author of the steampunk novella, Island of Icarus.

From there, we generally both agreed that it was high time to bring biopunk a little further into the limelight. The result is The Biopunk Reader, newly released from the test tube to blink it’s beady eyes.

At this point in the process, we’re looking on a rolling basis for short fiction, poetry, artwork, news stories, reviews- all of course, with a hefty serving of punk on the side. And who better to understand and sympathize with our mission than the steampunk community, so talented and gutsy?

Submissions can be sent to or

That said- have a happy, muculent holiday season, everyone!
