"So, what category would anthologies fall under, and if an anthology is nominated can the individual stories be nominated as well? Are there guidelines somewhere? I'm all behind this! Danielle  "

"I agree with Stephanie, if we're going to run this as an honest to goodness award, then we need categories for Art as well. Perhaps a category list like this: Novel of the Year -- Overall Best Alternate History Best Romance Best Horror Best…"

A SWAG annual award for Best in Steampunk - THE JULES VERNE AWARD!

How about it?  We at SWAG could promote it, call for submissions, and build a clientele for the best.  We could have several categories - best overall story, best gadgetry, most technically plausible; the Dru Pagliassotti best in social critique; best use of humor in steam; must 'punkish'. What do you think? At some point we might be as big as the Hugos!  ;-)See More

Introduce yourself!
I am a working scientist, inspired by Tolkien and his world of elves and men. Imagine, for a moment, that you are the great tinkerer Feanor, who has just told the gods where to go, and the servant has just dropped a pot of steaming coffee into your lap! The starting premise (without the Tolkienesq names) for The People of the Lie - my WIP.
What do you hope to find at The Steampunk Writers & Artists Guild?
I'm looking for The Dark Side! Yes, the Victorian era was one of slavery, genocide, poverty, and suffrage. Along with the glory and novelty of gadgets and airships, I hope to find ways to write about the arrogance, the opulence that coexisted with desperation, and the multi-class oriented society.
How did you hear about us?
was there when Lia invented the site
