If it's Tuesday, that means it must be Steampunk Librarian day on Folderol. Today we have a lot of links sent in by others, for which I am (as always) eternally grateful. Thanks, everyone!

From Dan: Warren Ellis's new work Ignition City will most likely appeal to the steampunk crowd. I know it appeals to me, at least.

From the Desert Librarian: Girl Genius, one of the shining pillars of steampunk, is something I've never gotten around to reading, even though I always hear wonderful things about it (I know, I suck). I do mean to remedy that soon!

From Bunny: you can buy actual remnants of the Gemini space mission from an auction. How amazing is that?

The historical photos from the Library of Congress always have wonderful material for inspiration. Look at this photo of "Russian Princess Schaikowski and Aviator Abramowitsch," read the comments about how this may have been Abramowitsch's last flight, and see if you aren't tempted to write a story or draw a picture or something.

If you haven't seen the London Particulars shop on Etsy yet, you definitely should - it's beautiful stuff.

Everyone likes to argue about movies, right? Here's a list of movies considered steampunk. Agree? Disagree?

And finally, a wonderful interview with Patrick Gyger discusses "the history of the future," which is what steampunk is all about, at its core.
