"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

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
