"Dear Alan I love seeing the relatively new genre of Steampunk pushed and stretched and explored. It will be fun watching it continue to develop. "

"Interesting post, Michelle. I think the term Steampunk Adjacent could be applied to quite a lot of material. For example, many people are describing the Robert Downey Jr. incarnation of Sherlock Holmes as Steampunk; but much as I love the film, I…"

What is a Steampunk Adjacent Novel?

I have been involved in the Steampunk movement for the past three years and when friends find out I have a newly released book, they immediately ask if it is a Steampunk novel.  I have to reluctantly sigh and say, “No, but I consider it to be ‘Steampunk adjacent.’” Now I must confess my own definition of what I consider a…See More

Profile Information

Blog/website
http://michelleblack.com
Introduce yourself!
I am the author of six historical novels and historical mysteries set in what I call the "Victorian West."
Though the last two of my novels, THE SECOND GLASS OF ABSINTHE and SEANCE IN SEPIA (2011) deal with the occult, I have never written fantasy and am not very conversant in the genre. I am very curious and constantly looking for new ways to express myself.
I am currently working on an alt. history novel set (as always) in Victorian America
I blog at: www.thevictorianwest.com
Stop by and say hello...
What do you hope to find at The Steampunk Writers & Artists Guild?
I want to meet other Steampunk authors, to learn, share, and network. I think it is exciting to watch a new genre of literature grow and develop.

Posted on January 22, 2011 at 2:30pm 0 Comments

On the night after Christmas in downtown Denver, I had the delightful opportunity to experience an evening of music and dance with a decidedly Steampunk flavor called "The Con: A Steamphunk Reverie." The theatrical performance was a…
