So far I've read White Chapel Gods (a little too violent for me) set in London and of course, Sherlock Holmes and Baker St.I'm curious to see where other writers are setting their stories or novels…Continue

"Non yet, but I plan to. That White Chapel one sounds interesting, I was thinking of doing a Steampunk, Splatterpunk crossover."

"Thanks for posting this. I've been very curious about this book, but I dread zombies - having a fear of being eaten they're not exactly my taste in fantasy. Sounds like though, you'd still recommend it even with the zombies."

Review: Boneshaker by Cherie Priest

I came to this touted in the steampunk genre, with some unease. I didn't quite understand the concept of zombies in the steampunk world, and I have to admit it started off slow for me, being more a history than a character opening. But once I plowed through, I found it to be  a very enjoyable read for a… Continue

Hi! My book is set in Victorian England; I was very vague in my first draft, and originally thought of the Regency period, but I think setting it later will fit the story better.

My cred is a short story published on DF_Underground, and online horror zine called Toy Maker's Apprentice. I have a Dark Fantasy/Steampunk novel out to agents at this time, but that's it.
There are some steamypunk erotica anthologies out there. Several, in fact. I dont think they are old enough to have shown up on Duotrope or Ralan yet. Check out Saritza Hernandez, the epub agent with the L Perkins agency. She reps mostly erotica and loves steampunk. She has a blog where she posts calls for submissions for such anthologies. She even reps short stories, and has sold steamypunk shorts to anthologies before.

I would love to read your article on the psychology of Steampunk!

No worries, if their copyright rules don't allow it, just give us a link or some info to how we can read it by putting a blog post up. I don't normally encourage self-promotion on the blog, but I think that counts as educational, or informative, or "of general interest" which fits the focus of the blog perfectly. :)

The Secret Notebook of Michael Faraday, my second novel in the Airship Flamel Advenstures Series is now available!

The book is a prequel to my first novel To Rule the Skies, although I think of it more as just coming first chronologically.  It follows the main character from my previous novel, Nicodemus Boffin, from his boyhood to about a decade before the events in To Rule the Skies.The synopsis:Nicodemus Boffin, a uncommonly clever boy…See More
