"Perhaps what you need is a technology that combines existing Victorian scientific knowledge in new ways. Take electricity for example. The electric capacitor or condenser was invented in the mid 18th century and so they were scarcely…"

SteampunX Serial Novel by Benjamin Jacobson + Free Advertisement for Steampunk Writers and Artists

Hello everyone, I joined a couple months ago at the start of my Steampunk odyssey and now I have something to show for it.  I'm releasing a serial novel, in the tradition of the Victorians.  It's called SteampunX and more details can be found here: http://steampunxserial.com  As part of this project I'm including an advertiser section, just like in the nineteenth century.  Except I'm giving away…See More

"Essentially trying to stick to a 'textbook' steampunk template is boring. Doing something different is much more fun and readers will thank you more for it. If you're building a world then don't use someone else's rules for…"

"Good point, Nicole.  I only worry about it being internally consistent.  I love robots, but it's hard to justify their existence a hundred years early and in the type of culture I've set up.  In the end it's…"

"I look at it this way: you're writing a novel, not a history book. Have fun with your narrative - so what if it isn't historically accurate?"

Helen Ryan replied to Benjamin Jacobson's discussion At a crossroads ...
"Hmmm...the first, I think. While it is interesting to read Victorian era Steampunk, I think we all know it's rather overdone. Plus, never invented tech is usually cool :) I know what you mean about wanting to keep things accurate, I'm…"

Introduce yourself!
I'm a writer of speculative fiction. I've been published around the web and have a short collection out through Amazon. I've decided to tackle a novel in the Steampunk genre and that's what brings me here. I don't have much Steampunk cred, but I've read my share of Victorian literature and did once buy a pair of surplus military goggles.
What do you hope to find at The Steampunk Writers & Artists Guild?
Hopefully, good conversation, help with research and a greater perspective on the genre.
How did you hear about us?
