Art of Daniel Cortes

I'd like to showcase in this post the singular talents of Daniel Cortes, the artist who has accepted the challenge of illustrating the Steampunk Holmes series for Noble Beast publishing. The quality and incisive depth of his work belies his few years of experience as a concept designer and character artist, and the steampunk flavour of his artwork is really remarkable. He has participated in multi-national competitions such as Dominance Wars, rapidly earning the respect and admiration of…

Manga Recommendations for Steampunk Enthusiasts

After watching Laputa, Howl's Moving Castle, and Steamboy, after finishing Fullmetal Alchemist and catching up with the latest release of D. Gray-Man, I find myself asking, "What else?"

 

It is evident that I deal exclusively with mangas in this post. This is because while steampunk has been recognized as a hybrid genre that is versatile and multicultural, there is a rather blatant oversight of mangas and animes in spite of the astounding popularity and appeal of Howl's Moving…

Multicultural Steampunk Ficiton

As the hub of the industrial revolution, Victorian Britain and its culture will continue to be one of the strongest settings for Steampunk fiction. That said, it is not the only legitimate setting. After all, even Jules Verne’s most memorial character, Captain Nemo, mentioned more than western European aristocrats in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. "Do you think I'm unaware of the suffering people and oppressed races of this planet, the poor to be comforted, the victims to be avenged?"…

Holiday Question: Do We Have Moral Obligations As Writers Of Steampunk?

Morality—this is a tricky issue, but specifically with regard to the subject in the sense of morality plays, as in good versus evil, bad guys/girls versus good guys/girls. Steampunk, as a genre, relies particularly heavily on this sort of interaction in its plots, but then so do most speculative genres to a great degree. Still, with Victorian settings so often prevalent in Steampunk tales, that particular time’s concepts of right and wrong, good versus evil, often have to figure very… Continue

Victorian Dress: No easy access

Many in the romance writing community know historical author, Deeanne Gist purchased a full set of Victorian clothing. She wants her books to be as accurate as possible.

Her clothing came with a 17 minute instruction manual. This article has a video.

Why Steampunk?



I first learned about Steampunk many years ago, when issue #4 of Girl Genius had just hit the stands. My brother is an avid comic collector and he encouraged me to read them. I found them really cool, but at the time I was busy with many other things, and the whole idea of Steampunk got put on a back-burner in my mind.



A little over a year ago, I… Continue
