Update

Posted in steampunk anthology on July 19, 2013 by neworleansbygaslight

It’s a pretty exciting time to be a steampunk here in New Orleans.

Just ordered another batch of the anthology books and so I’ll be able to send out the contributor copies as soon as they arrive. I’ll be sending out review copies to local bookstores and newspapers as well.

Gary Bourgeois, author of the steampunk short story “Kilkarney’s Map” is writing a sequel entitled “Carlotta’s Ring.” I’ve had the pleasure of reading the first part of the story and let me say that so far it’s an excellent read.

The Confabulation of Gentry is holding a jazz funeral for the mad scientist Dr. Milo T. Pinkerton III, Saturday, August 3rd, at Siberia 2227 St. Claude Ave., New Orleans, Louisiana. (Let’s hope this time he stays dead, right folks?)

The Heist of the Century is Friday, August 2nd at 8 pm. It’s a musical event involving the Marquis of Vaudeville and no less than three steampunk bands traveling cross country by train. Friday August 2nd is when they’re playing in New Orleans, the Steampunk Capitol of the South! It’s at the Prytania Bar 3445 Prytania Street in New Orleans, Louisiana.

That’s all that’s going on in New Orleans at the moment. (That’s enough, eh?)

See you among the clouds, steampunks!
