My name is Fabio Fernandes, I'm a writer and translator living in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Among other things, I translated Alan Moore's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (Vol. 1) to Brazilian Portuguese, and published short stories in Brazil, Portugal, Romania, New Zealand, the UK, and the US. An excerpt of a story of mine can be found at Ann and Jeff VanderMeer's Steampunk II - Steampunk Reloaded. I'm currently writing my first novel in English.
What do you hope to find at The Steampunk Writers & Artists Guild?
A fine, cozy place where I can find resources to help in my researches and people to talk and exchange information.
Welcome to the Guild, Fabio! If you'd like to start a group for the Brazilian/Portuguese members you'll find it's very easy and will help you feel connected to each other. I hope you get a lot out of your membership here. We're delighted to have you!
