If you haven’t seen me around the Journal much over the past few weeks, it’s because I’ve been hard at work doing guest posts all over the aetherweb to get the word out about Army of Brass. Here’s a little taste of each post and links to where you can read the full text.
History of Steampunk Series
The first post in this 4-part series was posted here on the Journal and looked at Steampunk works from the time before the term first appeared in print in 1987. The second post was hosted by Chris Pavesic and looked at the first decade of Steampunk with an emphasis on books. For the next installment, Penny Blake was my host and the article was about the second decade of Steampunk as it branched into visual media and music. The last post in the series was published by Rebekah Jonesy with a focus on the most recent decade and looked at the rise of Steampunk in the media and pop culture, as well as what to expect from attending a Steampunk event.
Murder and Mayhem
Today, my friends over at the Steampunk Cavaliers site hosted an article that profiles four real-life Victorian murderesses. This post was inspired by the darker scenes in Army of Brass and the amazing female characters in the book that sometimes go too far.
More still to come!
