My name is listed on the DragonCon Guests Page, and they've given me a biography of my very own.  So it's official, I will be adding my own special brand of madness to DragonCon, September 4-7.  Not only that, they've added a new track featuring everybody's favorite new genre, Steampunk.  Okay, now you have Lois McMasters Bujold, Charlaine Harris and ME--plus that brand new Steampunk track--on the schedule.  Why haven't you bought your membership yet?  ;-)

Oh heck, there will be over 30,000 of them. :-) You'll love it! BTW, did you see they've now got an Alternate History panel with a Time Travelers Ball? The LJ community name is anachrodragon. Cheers and smiles, Jean Marie

But I hadn't noticed it in my thrill that you were there as a guest! So headdesk for me instead.

Aha! Hello m_stiefvater! You are the author Jean Marie recommended I read. I'm currently enjoying LAMENT. I was tickled to see the series was published by Flux. A friend of mine (Gillian Summers) is also pubbed by Llewellyn and Andrew is her editor. They do good work.

Yes! I really like her covers. I love Andrew (although he's now at Carolrhoda). And I'm glad you're enjoying LAMENT (and glad that Jean Marie recommended it!).

I saw that last night and went "WHEE!" Well done, ma'am.

Because of the Time Travelers' Ball they're hosting in May (besides the one possibly at Dragon) and the new steampunk track, I'm back to sorting Victorian garb. The two dresses I have are *cough* too small. Since I doubt I'm going to lose 3-1/2 stone by September I'll have to come up with something new without spending a bloody fortune. Luckily I can sew (grin).

Okay, I'm behind the times here... what is steampunk? I know it is a new genre, but what does it consist of?

These days it covers a lot of ground, but at heart, it's the science fiction of Jules Verne and Mark Twain. I see it as a combination of the Victorian era's machinery and fashion sense with a literal take on the Industrial Age's infernal engines. Think the original WILD WILD WEST and its 1990s remake. THE SECRET ADVENTURES OF JULES VERNE also qualifies. Most of the time Steampunk happens in a setting that looks a lot like Jack the Ripper's London, but animes like FULL METAL ALCHEMIST and THE LAST EXILE also qualify.
Does that help?
Cheers,
Jean Marie
