STEAMPUNK WORLD: A Multicultural Steampunk Fiction Anthology is fully funded! The publisher and editor say that if they hit their "stretch goal" donation numbers, they offer more goodies to backers, including interior illustration and possibly, a second volume. (From the editor: "Volume 2 would be an open-call edition, so any author would be invited to submit. We’d still be paying pro rates for that anthology, too. Best of all, the new volume would be added to the existing backer reward levels.")
I'm always looking for ways to support multicultural influence in Steampunk. Thanks Milton for posting the kickstarter campaign for STEAMPUNK WORLD.
Me, too, Milton! I'm really excited about this!
I made a donation. I have a few writing friends who will have stories this anthology. Looking forward to reading it.
The Kickstarter campaign for STEAMPUNK WORLD: A Multicultural Steampunk Fiction Anthology is underway! Contributing authors include Jaymeeh Goh, Balogun Ojetade and Diana Pho. I've already backed it. Rewards are pretty good so I may do it again. Check it out!
Agreed, Mlle. Loveless. I'm big on 'never forget'. Always be aware of the reality one bends when it comes to cosplay. Doing so fuels the re-imagining and holds the true past up for justifiable scrutiny.
You're welcome, Madame Glacer! This clip is part humor - in that it exposes a mainstream audience to steampunk - and part critique - in that it shows how steampunk can romanticize a period of history that wasn't great (understatement of the year!) for people of color. I like it for doing both of these things...
I agree! Although Milton is quite a handsome name...choosing a persona is sooo much fun!
I do too, Madame. In the end it's all about fun. Which reminds me. I need a Steamfunk name...
Love Hari Kondabolu! Thanks for posting Anita Loveless. I was at SPWF 2013...and is was a blast in the best sense!
Milton- good point made. For me, I have no problem dealing with the realities of the true past but love the imagined future aspects of a Steam world. For instance, I love the TV show 'Defiance' not because it is an absolute truth but because it is a 'what if?'. And Hari looked fab in his Steampunk wear no matter how much he joked it. Go on with your bad self, Sherlock Homeboy!
