Steampunk Bible Spectacular: B&N Event in NYC Thursday with Contributors and Eels!

(A preview of the means of my electrocution by the League of S.T.E.A.M. I will never, ever be the same…)

My coauthor S.J. Chambers and I will be in New York City Thursday night for a Steampunk Bible Extravaganza at the west side Barnes & Noble (at 82nd & Broadway; 2289 Broadway), we’ll hopefully be debuting the Greg Bossert-produced video of my terrible and hurtful electrocution by the electric baby eels raised from birth to be vicious killers by The League of S.T.E.A.M. We’ll also be shooting some DIY video footage for the Steampunk Bible website, so extra points for Steampunk fashion. Not only that, we have it on good authority that some Very Important People may be filming as well.

The audience is going to be chockful of authors, too, like Jonathan Wood and Myke Cole, to name just the tip of the iceberg, and we’ll be rewarding everyone’s attendance by suggesting they join us at the Dead Poet bar afterwards, and possibly the Amsterdam Ale House to follow the Dead Poet.

And look at this wealth of special guests, all of them contributors to the Steampunk Bible! All of them showing off sneak previews of current and future projects.

—Ay-leen the Peacemaker, Beyond Victoriana founder
—G.D. Falksen, writer and vid-game developer
—Liz Gorinsky, editor at Tor
—Ekaterina Sedia, author of The Alchemy of Stone (tentative)
—Evelyn Kriete (editor, writer, music label founder, provocateur)
—Dexter Palmer, author of The Dream of Perpetual Motion
—Jaymee Goh, writer and founder of Silver Goggles
—Aleks Sennwald, artist

Wow. What a line-up! And yes, folks, that’s right, we’ll be bringing the pretty-pretty of a powerpoint. In addition to the video and guest previews, we’ll showcase The Steampunk Bible and give an exclusive (and somewhat hilarious) look at the forthcoming The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities.

How can you pass that up? I have no idea. There are some events that function like magnets and can be dangerous to resist—so don’t deny the heavy metals in your steampunk bods and come out Thursday at 7pm for the wondrous, the bling-y, the multi-media-ish. Should be lots and lots of fun.

Here’s the facebook events page.

Here’s a great review of the Steampunk Bible in the Financial Times.
