Today, as part of the ongoing giveaway contest for Johannes Cabal The Detective, I get to share a map of where the action takes place.

Contest drawing is Friday, August 13! You can enter at the Steampunk Librarian or at the entry at the Steampunk Empire.

In hindsight, Cabal may have benefited from this steampunk RFID globe, which was on view at the Maker Faire in Dearborn over the weekend. (I have to get to a Maker Faire one of these days.) In related fair and convention news, a Wild Wild West con is scheduled for next spring in Tuscon!

J.J. Abrams is reported to be steering a cinematic adaptation of Boilerplate. Sounds like an intriguing combination. Over at the Film Cynics, meanwhile,  top steampunk films are discussed; this is a different list than the kind I normally see, which makes it especially interesting.

And finally, via Metafilter: Behold the Telephone Newspaper of 1901!
