Received transmission: “Mecha, Get off your coil and post to the blog!” Very well…future impositions, however, must be accompanied by gifts of new ribbons…the better kind.
Here, Austinite Rick Klaw discusses how he got into Steampunk television:
Professional reviewer, geek maven, and optimistic curmudgeon, Rick Klaw has supplied countless reviews, essays, and fiction for a variety of publications including The Austin Chronicle, Moving Pictures Magazine, San Antonio Current, GeekDad, Conversations with Texas Writers (University of Texas Press), The Greenwood Encyclopedia of Science Fiction and Fantasy (Greenwood Press), King Kong Is Back! (BenBella Books), Farscape Forever (BenBella Books), SF Site, RevolutionSF, Science Fiction Weekly, and Nova Express, Steampunk (Tachyon Press), Electric Velocipede and Cross Plains Universe (Monkeybrain/FACT). Currently, Klaw produces, along with Mark London Williams, the bi-weekly graphic novel column “Nexus Graphica” for SF Site.
A collection of his works, Geek Confidential: Echoes from the 21st Century (Monkeybrain), received praise from such diverse sources as The Austin Chronicle, Texas Monthly Online, The Austin American Statesman, Michael Moorcock, and Joe R. Lansdale.
In a previous life, Klaw was the managing editor of Mojo Press and the founding fiction editor for RevolutionSF. He currently serves as a contributing editor for RevolutionSF.
He can often be found pontificating on Twitter and over at the Dark Forces Book Group, and at his blog The Geek Curmudgeon which won the Top Sci-Fi Book blog in 2010.
