Call for Submissions — Steampunk Universe

Beyond Victoriana - July 26, 2015 - 9:21pm

Sarah Hans, editor behind the award-winning anthology Steampunk World, is currently looking for short fiction for its follow-up, Steampunk Universe.

According to her website, the type of work she’s looking for:

Your story should take place in a non-Western culture. I’d love to have a variety of stories that take place in the diverse cultures of Central/South America, Asia, and Africa.

Your story should contain a character with at least one exceptionality. It should be a major element of the story, providing the character with extra challenges but maybe also special insight or abilities. I want to explore how steampunk technology changes the lives of people with exceptionalities, for better or for worse.  I’d love to see characters who are also members of other marginalized groups (such as LGBTQ characters).

Your story should contain steampunk elements. I get a lot of submissions with steampunk exoskeletons and dirigibles, but not many with spaceships or submarines. I’d really like authors to stretch themselves and instead of just writing alternate history, set the story in a parallel universe or on another planet. Read Tobias Buckell’s excellent story “Love Comes to Abyssal City” for an example.

All submissions are due June 1, 2016. More info can be found  here.

Pentayurt for Burning Man

Steampunk Workshop - July 20, 2015 - 5:19pm
I’m heading to Burning Man again this year. If you’ll recall, last year I built a Hexayurt for the Playa. It worked very well and I was much happier in the Hexayurt than I have ever been in a tent. But I had painted the Hexayurt to cover up the logos on the polyisocyanurate panels. […]

WW-II Vintage Homemade Welder

Steampunk Workshop - July 15, 2015 - 9:55pm
I found this welder on Craigslist for hundred dollars. It’s made with a World War II surplus aircraft generator and the engine from a 1946 Austin Dorset. It’s a 200 Amp DC welder with a four-cylinder pushrod engine. This is a first look at it and there will be more videos as I get it […]
