Fourth Star!!

September 15th, 2011

We’re completely bowled over to report that Steampunk! just received another starred review: this time for the Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books. They really nailed a lot of what we love about steampunk and what we loved about making this book:

“While there are plenty of YA novels dipping into this area, this impeccable anthology can serve as either an introduction to much of what makes steampunk what it is or a creative take for established fans who will be intrigued by the authorial tinkering. And since tampering and tinkering is not only how steampunk evolved into a subgenre but also is very much part of each of these stories, that is a nice point of intersection indeed.”

Yesterday Kelly and I were lucky enough to take part in one of NEIBA’s All About the Book days where ten authors got to introduce their books and do a little reading for booksellers from all over New England. Alma Katsu‘s The Taker was a huge hit, as was a mystery, William Landay‘s Defending Jacob. Also a huge hit: Rosie’s cookies! Rosie, who has 5 bakeries in the Boston area, has a new book out and she brought these “Soho Globs” which were absolutely fantastic.

It was great fun to throw some answers near the permanent question “What is steampunk? but it’s always more fun to just point and say, This! and this! rather than try and come up with a definition.

Also: this Sunday Kelly and I are at the Brooklyn Book Fest and the Saturday after that we’re off to Baltimore for their Book Festival and we’ll be doing Steampunk! events at each. Come by and say hi!
