Steampunk

Post by steven pirie on Sat Feb 26, 2011 10:09 am

One is desirous of reading some felicitous Steampunk, Mrs Watson.

Ah, sorry, I went all Victorian there. Can anyone recommend some Steampunk for me to read, preferably online...?

I'll have you some links after twitter cooperates again. there is a steampunk chat every Friday evening beginning at 8 pm CST. (I think) use the #steampunkchat to search for it. (when twitter is in between fits that is.)

Shimmer Magazine released a "Clockwork Jungle Book" issue about a year ago now. The concept was 'steampunk animal fables', though I guess some are more clockpunk.

I've got a whimsical little story in it.

Thanks Shadow, Vincent, I'll look at those links.

I want to write a steampunk story, and I have the slight problem I'm not really sure what steampunk is. Laughing

Read "Dr. Adderson's Lens," by Natania Barron, on page 12. I read this story as a reprint in Bull Spec #1 and thought it was brilliant. That link is where it was originally published. It's a great story.

Thanks, Ken, that is a good story.

Though now I have clockpunk, dieselpunk, steampunk, cyberpunk... to confuse me. Is there no punk unturned? Laughing

Punkpunk is still relatively undeveloped.
