Okay, it's official: the Steampunk Librarian (aka me) is going to be at Dances of Vice in New York City this weekend, even though this month's dress theme is about as far from my comfort zone as one can get! If you see me there, say hi.

Did you know there's a calendar for steampunk-related events? It's true, and you can email the site to add events as well.

The Affinity Bridge was summarized as "a steampunk Sherlock Holmes story with zombies." That's pretty hard to resist. Also, Scott Westerfeld teases his readers with this preview of a steampunk-themed trilogy that's due to start this fall.

If you visit the Science Museum in London sometime soon, you may get a strange and wonderful booklet from a cabbie. If you're nowhere near the museum, it's also available in PDF.

You may remember Doktor A and his fantastic Spooky Pop creations; now behold his Mechtorians!

And finally...let's look to the future and envision a world of hybrid locomotives. Why not?

I look forward to seeing what you pulled together for Saturday night. Was creating your costume anything like Carol Burnet doing Scarlet O'Hara?
