Edward.

 

He is an artist and craftsman from…

AetherFest 2011 Review

I was right to be excited about the First Annual Texas Steampunk Convention in San Antonio, Texas this past weekend.  I’ve been to several Anime Conventions in the past and I just have to say that this blows every one of them out of the water.

I realized at the past Ikkicon how I never really enjoyed the Conventions I went to in the past.  I usually walked away annoyed at the end of conventions, but not with AetherFest.  When Sunday rolled around, nearly everyone I talked to wished it…

"Goodyear commits to future with new zeppelin airships." Sadly, the story is not quite as thrilling as the headline makes it sound. But we are all about zeppelins, so this is good news.

 

More good news: Mark Hodder has won the Philip K.…

Steel City Steam Society Photo Shoot

Cordelia set up a second annual photo shoot, this year at the Phipps Conservatory, a wholly appropriate 19th Century edifice. My initial intention was to attend but not in costume because, having obtained a nice digital SLR camera, I expected to be taking more pictures that I had taken the previous year. However, a friend of mine coincidentally scheduled a party…

Speculative fiction fuels itself with war. The most dynamic stories are born in troubled times, as epic fantasy has… Continue
