As publication day approaches things are heating up in Steampunk!ville:
We got books! Woot!
Also: Holly Black’s “Everything Amiable and Obliging” will soon be available on the Storyville app. If all goes well, next week another story should be available on tor.com. There’s an interview with Kelly and me on the Book Smugglers. Yes, we smuggle.
And, turning the tables, Kelly just interviewed Kate Beaton (author of the absolutely huge Hark! A Vagrant) for the Boston Phoenix.
That interview should be out in time for the Boston Book Festival—where Kelly, me, and Holly Black will be on a panel with Mrs. Grymm about, you know, steampunk!
Is it a literary genre, an aesthetic style, or a way of life? It may be all of the above! Join Kelly Link and Gavin Grant, co-editors of the new Steampunk! An Anthology of Fantastically Rich and Strange Stories, as well as Spiderwick Chronicles co-author Holly Black and steampunk creator Allison DeBlasio (aka Mrs. Grymm) for a discussion of all things steampunk, from goggles to gyrocopters. Wear a costume and you may win a prize or get to see the session while seated on stage. Moderated by Maya Escobar, Teen Librarian at the Cambridge Public Library.Leave a Comment »
