Just downloaded some images from an S. J. transmission today. Last Sunday, she and contributors Rick Klaw, Michael Moorcock, Jess Nevins, and Liz Gorinsky met with a packed house at the U.S. Arts Authority to celebrate the book’s release in Austin, TX. Austin Books and Comics were on hand, and the venue was organized and set-up with the help of Rick Klaw, Brandy Whitten, and Peggy Hailey. The contributor’s discussed the history of Steampunk, its literary roots in the works of the legendary Michael Moorcock, its literature today, as well as within television. To celebrate, this week shall be Texas week, and we’ll have some features, profiles, and interviews of not only last Sunday’s guests, but as well as some of Texas’ finest steamers. Meanwhile, enjoy the folio, and if images aren’t enough, check out this interesting textual by Austin Chronicle‘s Marc Savlov, who found within The Steampunk Bible a call to steam.
