The big steampunk news is Datamancer's appearance on the Wall Street Journal's Tech Diary! Steampunk is getting famous. Eeek.

I pre-ordered my copy of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: The Black Dossier yesterday. It sounds like it will be less Victorian and more all across the centuries, which makes it even more fun to me. For those dedicated to Victoriana, though, there is 221 Baker Street in Los Angeles, which looks to be a faithful recreation of the Sherlock Holmes residence. (I particularly like the Chemist's Corner.) If you are a Holmes fan, by the way, the Sherlockiana weblog is a must.

Due to inflation, the penny dreadful of yesteryear has transmogrified into the Dollar Dreadful. It still looks like the olden days, though!

Pretty photos of gears and clockwork from a talented watchmaker make me happy. I expect it makes other steampunky people happy too.

A futuristic link from Bunny: batteries made from paper? Amazing! Think of how small mechanized bits could become! Also becoming reality: bones made with the help of inkjet printers. Wow.
