The Steampunk Bible: For Best Related Book, Hugo Awards

I’m decidely under the weather for a variety of reasons and won’t be blogging much this week, but I did want to remind Hugo voters that The Steampunk Bible: An Illustrated Guide to the World of Imaginary Airships, Corsets and Goggles, Mad Scientists, and Strange Literature (Abrams Image), by myself and S.J. Chambers, is eliglble in the best-related book category.

The Steampunk Bible features over 250 full-color images and over 60,000 words of text covering all aspects of the steampunk subculture. In addition to being featured on the CBS Morning Show, it was written up in the NYT and lots of other national media outlets, in addition to a full-on feature in the LA Times.

I do very few of even the softest of sells re nomination posts, but so many amazing creators are featured in the book I’d like to see them recognized. More importantly, this just reminds you the book came out in 2011.

    It’s a wonderful book. It doesn’t answer the age old question, “Is Firefly Steampunk!?” but it had everything I wanted, and several excellent surprises that I didn’t even know I wanted, within its beautiful casebound clutches.
