Happy news! The latest issue of Gatehouse Gazette is out, and the theme is the 1940s!
Here in our tiny Steampunk Librarian corner, we don’t pay much attention to what’s happening in the larger steampunk community. We’re sort of bad about that. The Steampunk Chronicle, however, is here to help us keep au courant with the gossip and the events.
The always wonderful Recto Verso site has a plethora of dirigible goodness!
And finally, a steampunk kung fu movie? Yes, evidently.

The prodigal son (or magazine) for Steampunk and Dieselpunk has returned, albeit on a limited basis!

All good things must come to an end but not indefinitely. Although we suspended regular publication of the Gatehouse Gazette last year, we didn’t want 2012 to go by without at least one installment of the dieselpunk and steampunk magazine. So I proudly present our thickest issue to date: a 1940s themed special edition of the Gatehouse Gazette.
The magazine has a survey of Spanish steampunk by Jose Francisco Alfaya of Decimononic; a lengthy review of Peter Tsouras’ collection of alternate history stories Third Reich Victorious by Larry Amyett of the Dieselpunk blog; a collection of forgotten technologies by Lorenzo Davia; an essay by Marcus Rauchfuß of The Traveler’s Steampunk Blog about Nazi aesthetics in the dieselpunk genre; a feature by Tome Wilson of Dieselpunks.org about dieselpunk milestones; and, as always, a Steampunk Wardrobe column by Hilde Heyvaert of House of Secrets Incorporated about noir fashion styles.

Sadly, Mr. Nick Ottens, the editor of the respected and well-established Gatehouse Gazette, has released what is the final edition of perhaps the best online Steampunk magazine many enthusiasts of the genre have had the opportunity to enjoy. In this final edition of the Gazette, one can indulge in excellent genre articles, such as possibilities of Steampunk adventure on the African continent, an excellent piece on Germany’s “Lion of Africa”, how trains introduced change into modern warfare, outstanding reviews of Steampunk related media (such as “Mrs. Darcy and the Aliens”, “The Three Musketeers”, and the ever popular novelization of “Space: 1889″), along with interviews, regular columns, Steampunk fiction, and a bit more insight on the history of the Gatehouse Gazette, and some of the reasoning behind its finalization. However, I do wish to doff my hat to the efforts of Mr. Ottens, Dr. Molinarius, Miss Heyvaert, Mr. van Olffen, Mr. Piecraft, Mr. RauchfuB, Ms. McCleary, and all the countless contributors who made the Gatehouse Gazette indelible imprint on furthering Steampunk and Dieselpunk genres - Thank you.

A new edition of the Gatehouse Gazette is out, and it focuses on the world of the 1930s. Dieselpunk represent!
Also out is a new biography of H.G. Wells. He was quite the ladies' man, evidently.
Behold the wizard of Schenectady, Charles Steinmetz! It's a great story.
There are many wizards on the RPF boards, replicating props and making imaginary items come alive. Here's Dr. John Watson's service revolver, for instance!
And finally, David Malki! points to an article from the Christian Science Monitor dated 1893, which predicts what the United States will be like in 1992. It sounds, um, interesting?
