STEAMPUNK II

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.

STEAMPUNK RELOADED: Steampunk 2
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.
