From Ay-leen the Peacemaker:
I wanted to give a heads-up about this event coming up this Sunday. It's a fundraiser to help out Gil Cnaan, the producer behind Dorian's Parlor in Philly, who's been hospitalized and now has bills he cannot pay :( He's a fantastic man and such a sweetheart and deserves all the support the community can give. I'd greatly appreciate it if you can help signal-boost this any way you can.…Continue

Nostalgia is a necessary thing, I believe, and a way for all of us to find peace in that which we have ccomplished, or even failed to accomplish. At the same time, if nostalgia precipitates actions to return to that fabled, rosy-painted time, particularly in one who believes his life to be a failure, then it is an empty thing, doomed to produce nothing but frustration and an even greater sense of failure."

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! ;-)

I have just joined this fine group and look forward to meeting other Steampunk creators. I thought it might be helpful to post an interview I have just completed with the Conselho Steampunk from Brazil as a way to share what I'm up to. Who else in this group is working in a crossover between Steampunk and elements of Gothic Horror? Would love to see other projects and ideas happening in the Aethersphere. In case…Continue

I'd like to request that the blog feature be used for instructional posts only, not self-promotion. If you'd like to showcase your work, please do so as a "new discussion" at The Emporium group. An obvious advantage of this is that any publishing professionals scouting for talent will only have to look in one place, instead of seeking out…Continue
