Steampunk Sunday: A little of This and That…and a Little Bragging

All lovers of steampunk be sure to check out the September issue of Locus magazine, It’s the steampunk issue and features interviews with Gail Carriger and Cherie Priest. There are extracts from the interviews on Locus’ website. I for one can’t wait to read it.

This fall Aspen Comics are releasing the steampunk comic Lady Mechanika by artist Joe Benitez.

Authorities found her locked in an abandoned laboratory amidst an undeterminable number of corpses and body parts, her own limbs having been amputated and replaced with mechanical components.

With no memory of her captivity or her former life,Mechanika eventually built a new life for herself as a private detective, using her unique  abilities to solve cases the police couldn't or wouldn't handle. But she never stopped searching for the answers to her own past.

Set in turn of the century England, a time when magic and superstition clashed with new scientific discoveries and inventions, Lady Mechanika is about a young woman's search for her own identity as she solves other mysteries involving science and the supernatural. (From www.joebenitez.com)

And now for a little bragging, which had nothing to do with Steampunk Sunday.

My Aussie friend, Janine Baroutsis attended the True Blood con this weekend and got me this beautiful picute signed by Kristen Bauer van Straten (Pam). It’s so awesome!!
