For those of you not in Cincinnati, here's the weather I'm looking at right now. Whee!

Anyway. Far away in the much warmer San Francisco Airport, an exhibit titled "Out of this World! The Twentieth-Century Space Invasion of American Pop Culture" is currently at Terminal 3. If you happen to be passing through, check it out.

There's a book out about jetpacks! And there's even a bonus website with all the science! Another book in the works will feature Jeff Vandemeer's writing and Eric Orchard's illustrating -- you may remember both of them from previous posts. Can't wait.

Over the weekend, we got together with some fellow steampunk types and watched The Mysterious Geographic Explorations of Jasper Morello. If you haven't seen it, you should, even if steampunk is not your thing -- it's a short, animated, Academy-award-nominated film with sci-fi and humor and romance. And it's pretty, too!

We leave you with the demure appeal that is The Discreet Charm Of The Bourgeoisie Robot, courtesy of artist Wade Marynowsky. Enjoy!
