of predicting and traveling and drinking

| February 14, 2012

Back in 1900, predictions were made about the future, and many of them came true. So why not predict what 2112 will bring?



Ay-leen is compiling all steampunk-related conventions for the year, and it looks as if one might be able to travel for the entire year visiting convention after convention! There’s also a monthly compilation, for those of us with more spontaneous agendas.



The Vandermeers are at it again! They’re looking for submissions to their next anthology, titled Steampunk Revolution.



The consistently amazing NPS site has posted mp3s of Theo Wangemann's 1889-1890 European recordings. How fantastic is that?



And for those of us who like a good drink now and again, there is a (Kindle) tome just for you – SteamDrunks! Enjoy!
