February Miscellany

It’s Hugo nom­i­na­tion time, and for our read­ers who par­tic­i­pate in that award process, we urge you to please take a moment to con­sid­er The Steam­punk Bible for Best Relat­ed Work.  Jeff dis­cuss­es why here.

Some­how, I missed that we were includ­ed in  CNN’s gift list, and we were pleased to see we made Pop­mat­ters best non-fic­tion list of 2011.

The link to the HGTV pro­gram Sell­ing New York, in which we get a brief cam­era cut shout-out in Dr. Grymm’s lab­o­ra­to­ry (thank you, Joey!), is now avail­able. The video fea­tures a brief inter­view with anoth­er SPB con­trib­u­tor Ayleen-the Peace­mak­er, and through­out you can see lumi­nar­ies like Emper­or Jus­tin­ian Stanis­laus of the Red Fork Empire, gen­tle­man and schol­ar Daniel Holz­man-Tweed, and mem­bers of The Wan­der­ing Legion of the Thomas Tew. Dr. Grymm was the mas­ter­mind behind help­ing CORE real­tors pro­mote the apart­ment by intro­duc­ing them to Steam­punk, and coor­di­nat­ing the wide­ly pub­li­cized first Steam­punk Open House.  The Chelsea apart­ment, which is list­ed at $1.75 mil­lion is still avail­able.

Dr. Grymm writes of his involve­ment with the CORE real­tors, crit­ics of Steam­punk design, and the Chelsea apart­ment as a whole here.

And final­ly we were thrilled to learn that Steam­punk is alive and well in our own neck of the woods. The Flori­da Steam­punk Exhi­bi­tion began sell­ing tick­ets ear­li­er this month for its East event in Day­tona Beach, FL on April 13 through 15. Guests include a star-stud­ded line-up with Abney Park, Pro­fes­sor Ele­men­tal, O. M. Grey, and many oth­ers. You can find tick­ets and event list­ings here.
