We are so proud that our very own Winona Cookie is set to be included in the upcoming collection, Steampunk 2: Steampunk Reloaded.

Here are some excerpts from Tachyon Publications blog release:

(working cover)
"Jeff and Ann VanderMeer have announced the line-up for Steampunk Reloaded. With a zeppelin-load of original fiction, nonfiction, and art, this companion to our bestseller Steampunk will be a must-have for all Steampunk fans.

Edited by Ann & Jeff VanderMeer
Interior design by John Coulthart, the genius behind The Thackery T. Lambshead Pocket Guide to Eccentric & Discredited Diseases, et al.

This lavishly illustrated anthology edited by Ann & Jeff VanderMeer builds on the strengths of the World Fantasy Award nominated first volume, presenting 155,000 words of rich and varied Steampunk stories, nonfiction, and art that plays off the idea of Steampunk not just in the context of dirigibles and other antiquated technology but also as connected to the maker movement and other aspects of the Steampunk subculture that have begun to infiltrate the literature. It includes the William Gibson story that inspired the Steampunk offshoot of "Raygun Gothic."

The book contains both Winona Cookie original art as well as her stories, "The Unlikely Career of Portia Dreadnought," "Artemesia's Absinthe," and "Obadiah Theremin, MD"

Congratulations to an amazingly talented member of the SteamTeam. Complete table of contents can be found on Jeff VanderMeer's site here.

Our fabulously talented Steam Team member Myke Amend of Ettadiem on etsy has created the cover art for the new Cherie Priest novella. The cover was released on Subterranean Press. Here's the text from the release:

Clementine cover1 rough.jpg

"Here’s a very rough look at the cover to Cherie Priest’s long (50k word) novella Clementine, which picks up where her novel Boneshaker left off, with some different characters, and a new adventure. was first on the scene with a review, and it glows: “Boneshaker introduced readers to Priest’s steampunk America, a late 18th-century setting where the Civil War drags on and the path of technology runs a bit differently than it did in our own history books. But, while the first book focused on strange yellow gases and the science-spawned zombies that roam within the walled city of Seattle, Clementine takes us on a wild chase across the sky in hydrogen-powered airships…She throws cliches, formulaic writing and caution to the wind as her airships scream through the sky. From zombies to sky pirates — I can hardly wait to see where she takes us next.”

SteamCon II

Greetings chrononaughts, aviators, tinkerers, scientists and steampunk enthusiasts! We at Steamcon Central are toiling tirelessly to bring you an even more spectacular convention than our first quite successful Steamcon last October. This year’s steamposium will highlight the Weird Weird West or American steampunk, if you will. Imagine the age of steam on the wild frontier. You are invited to explore with us the world of roughriders on mechanical horses, mad inventors, mystical Indian shamans, and mighty steam locomotives. Picture airships instead of stagecoaches, and the precision of robotic sharp shooters. If western steampunk doesn’t appeal, there will still be lots of classic steampunk to partake of as well. We’ve doubled our space to bring you even more steampunk wonders and delights. The ever popular Mr. Bodewell’s Cabaret will return with expanded hours. Join us for Riverboat Gambler Night, tea parties, concerts and much much more.

Seattle Washington
November 19-21, 2010
Seattle Airport Marriott and the Hilton Seattle Airport Hotel.

Author Guest of Honor: James Blaylock, author of “Homunculus” and considered one of the fathers of steampunk
