Steampunk Short Story

Steampunk Short Story


I was fortunate enough to be asked to write a story for Jean Rabe’s next DAW anthology, Steampunked. I’ve been working on a story idea and have come up with a setting that I think has not been done before in this genre. I don’t want to say what it is now. However, I was able to attend a panel on Steampunk at the World Fantasy convention a few weeks ago and it got my mind going. I’m also reading a great anthology edited by Jeff and Ann Vandermeer called Steampunk right now. Pick it up if you get a chance. I’ve loved almost every story so far and think it’s totally awesome.

Congratulations, Paul! Steampunk has become one of my favorite genres these days. Like Fantasy, it's one of those genres in which the impossible becomes possible, and nothing it out of bounds, (but don't forget the lace and brass goggles! ;-) ) I'm excited for you and look forward to reading your work in this new anthology!
