Apparently, I never signed up for an interview. Oops.
Since a few people expressed surprise at the idea of a Steampunk book(ish) blog, I thought I’d share a few of them with you:
The definitive Steampunk book blogger is Mick Perschon, aka the Steampunk Scholar. He’s a doctoral student doing his thesis on Steampunk and a professor who has his students read and analyze Gail Carriger’s books (among other things). He’s got extensive reviews and reading lists on his site.
Matt Delman, who runs Dr. Fantastique’s Show of Wonders, also has a blog called Free the Princess which is “A practical literary guide to Steampunk and the Victorian Era” where he talks about books, features Steampunk authors, and talks about Steampunk.
Silver Goggles also reviews books but this is different from the usual book blog. Jha reviews books from the view of a Steampunk Post-Colonist, analyzing them to “deconstruct narratives in steampunk, with a particular focus on the issues of colonialism, imperialism and politics, as they appear within steampunk literature and/or roleplay, in order to de-center the traditional Eurocentric focus” which can offer a very different perspective.
Do you know of a book blog that’s almost exclusively Steampunk? I’d love to know about them…
