Final Ever Issue! (and funding drive)

Hot Air Balloon


By now, most of you have probably noticed that there’s not been a huge amount of activity for a while. That there hasn’t been a new issue of the magazine for a long-ass time now. We wish it wasn’t so, but the fact of the matter is that most of our editors and regular contributors are increasingly busy with other things. As such, we’re sad to say that the next issue, SteamPunk Magazine #10, will be our last.

That said, SPM has been immensely important to a lot of us, and we would have it make such an end, the likes of which have never been seen before. To do that, we need a bit of help from all of you. We pretty much have a full compliment of awesome fiction, articles, interviews, and other interesting bits and pieces all ready to go. What we’re still missing is some lovely artwork to go with it.

Are you an artist? Do you have a bit of time to help out and draw something to go with one of our articles? Then please do get in touch by adding a comment below. If you don’t, but you have some spare pennies kicking around and you want to help us make this last issue truly awesome, use the donate button below and we’ll put your cash to hard work by commissioning some truly awesome pieces of art.

It’s been a hell of a ride, folks. And we don’t intend to go out without a party!

  1. Steampunk is long dead, folks. Time to turn off the lights and close the curtains.

  2. And yet somehow, Piechur, you’re still here. It’s enough to make me all nostalgic 😉

  3. No I’m not. It’s just my RSS reader reminding me once a year about funny guys who are still stuck to this outdated concept. Are you preparing a funeral before you finally move ahead?

  4. I am a collage/mixed media artist and have some collages on my Flickr page that may suit. Please let me know if you find any of them usable. Thank you.

  5. “Steampunk is long dead, folks.”

    Funniest thing I’ve read all day. 🙂

  6. I refuse to believe that it’s done. I am still having fun with the local group, and the national group, as well, plus the annual convention in the Niagara area. Not nearly done yet.

    Any signs of life? I must have missed something 🙂

    What does that even mean? How is a genre dead? Are there not new stories being published in the genre? I have a hard time believing it, though I admit while I like the steam punk aesthetic I don’t read that much steam-punk stuff out side of SPM, so I don’t know, you may be right.

  9. No fresh ideas (!!!), no followers, shrinking fanbase, fading interest. It’s dead like disco.

  10. is this call for artists still available? I have a steampunk-ish webcomic I run that I’d like to submit work from. if not. bummer.
