Guest Post: From the Editors of Planes B, a new Steampunk Anthology series

A year ago, two writ­ers (Josué Ramos from Spain, and Negro Inmun­sapá from Mex­i­co) had the idea to cre­ate the first Steam­punk anthol­o­gy in Span­ish, writ­ten by peo­ple from Spain and Amer­i­ca. This con­cept then lead them to more ideas.  One of them was the cre­ation of a col­lec­tion of books made to pro­mote these new writ­ers, an idea nev­er seen before. Thus Planes B was born. It was offi­cial­ly intro­duced at the recent EuroSteam­Con on Sep­tem­ber 28.

We are glad to say that the vol­ume #1 is done!

Josué Ramos, aka Schn­abel and Simón Bel­li­do, from Spain; and Negro Inmun­sapá and Miss von Mar­malade from Mex­i­co are the chiefs of the project. They are all part of the artists’ group known as Mer­ce­nar­ios de Dios, which pub­lish­es the retro­fu­tur­is­tic mag­a­zine El Inves­ti­gador once a month.

Each vol­ume of the col­lec­tion of Planes B will include one short sto­ry from a famous writer as a guest. The rest of the sto­ries will be writ­ten by new and unknown authors.

We are very proud to announce that the guest of vol­ume #1 is Jeff Van­der­Meer. His tale, “Fix­ing Hanover,” has been trans­lat­ed by Jason Bur­rows as “Arreg­lan­do a Hanover”, and orig­i­nal­ly pub­lished in Extra­or­di­nary Engines, an anthol­o­gy edit­ed in 2008 for Nick Gev­ers.

In addic­tion, this first book includes five more short sto­ries writ­ten by Simón Bel­li­do, María Eijo, Rafael di Fer­ro, Ricar­do Mon­tesinos and Janacek Jade­hier­ro. It includes illus­tra­tions made by Spain’s Tamarindo Conde; and Mexico’s Kari­na Denisse “Kade­co.” The image on the front of the book was made by Alexan­dra Galeano and the mod­el is Vito, both from Argenti­na.

We hope this will be the begin­ning of some­thing great! And we want you to enjoy read­ing it, of course.

  1. Hi, I have just ordered the steam­punk Bible. I have want­ed to read it since I had a for­mal con­tact with the term steam­punk, a genre which I have always loved but nev­er knew it was genre. Much like dieselpunk. Can’t wait to read it. I live in Brazil, I mean cra­p­land by the way… Daniel
