What do you hope to find at The Steampunk Writers & Artists Guild?
Friends! And a few good book recommendations.

Yet another attempt at figuring out what steampunk is, or was, or could be

Posted on February 7, 2011 at 5:00pm 1 Comment

Last spring I was very interested in trying to outline what "steampunk" means, at least for my own writing. What I came up with was a division between a literary genre with certain recognizable elements and a social phenomenon with certain cultural and physical touchstones.

Joseph! So glad to see you here. I was truly impressed with the links you shared on our GoodReads page and hope you'll cross-post to the blog section on our home page here. Just click on the Blog tab in the menu bar and follow instructions.

There's also the Forum for discussions.

People don't seem to comment on the blog posts, but they do get front page space. The forums have a good response rate, however. So if it's conversation you want, that's where you should head first. :)

Have fun and let me know if you have any suggestions for how to make the site better. :)

Robert, do you have a photo that could enliven your blog post? It helps to attract attention to your post in the sea of words that is our visually busy home page. :)

Hello! I found "The Lost Airship" on smashwords. I just wanted to know I was going to feature it on my blog today! Hope that's alright with you. (this is honestly the easiest time I've had contacting an author, so props to you!) Feel free to stop by and see the post! (also if you would like for me to remove it, just let me know)
