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.

The Pearl is still in print. Man…"
You see only what you want to see. The Victorian era certainly did have a racy underbelly, but all of it took place in the shadows, beneath a carefully cultivated mask of manners and protocols. Certain individuals made their mark upon…"
"Modesty and decorum?
Are we talking about the same Victorian era? The Victorian era that produced "The Pearl" among other classes of erotic literature?
