Was nice meeting you tonight. I do hope we get more time to chat in the future. If you ever need, you can contact me easier through the Steampunk Illumination Society. Odds are if you are a fan of the Marquis of Vaudeville and from Kansas, you had a chance to meet them a few months ago. We're taking over a town for a small convention soon, so see if you can't arrange a trip down to see them.
I'd also recommend Brassgoggles as the best online place for resources and reference material if you're new to Steampunk.
