The Thrill Electric by John Reppion and Leah Moore

SteamPunk Magazine favorites John Reppion and Leah Moore have been hard at work on The Thrill Electric for some time now.

The Traveling Tyrant

It looks like SteamPunk Magazine contributor Richard Marsden (author of the article on Waterloo from SteamPunk Magazine #6) has released the second novel in his Traveling Tyrant series, Traveling Tyrant: Casual Fridays. Haven’t actually read this yet, but he’s certainly a competent writer and well-versed in the history of warfare. And more importantly, this book […]

SPM contributor Miriam Roček arrested at #OWS again

Word on the facebooks is that Miriam Roček, aka Steampunk Emma Goldman, was arrested in last night’s attempt to retake and hold Liberty Plaza (née Zuccotti Park).

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.

Katie at Airship Ambassador, Pt 2!

Hello everyone! I’m enjoying my last few weeks of break before school starts, so there probably won’t be much regular posting for a bit, but here’s a bit of shameless self-promotion: The second half of my interview at Airship Ambassador, featuring a small hoard of links and my suggestions about what to call a group […]

Katie at Airship Ambassador!

This is a few days old, but I thought I should point out… The fabulous Kevin over at Airship Ambassador has put up the first part of an interview with me, in which I address such thorny questions as “How would you define steampunk?” and “Why does everyone call you ‘Spiffy,’ anyway?” It’s fun times, […]
