Announcement! As our winner of Andrew P. Mayer's The Falling Machine has not stepped up to claim his prize, we're redoing the giveaway....and now we have two copies! One is an Advance Reader Copy, and one is the actual published edition. We'll include everyone who entered the contest on the original post, plus anyone else who wants to be included! Deadline is Friday, July 15th, and Sir Reginald will castigate everyone (and draw the winners) via video soon afterwards. Best of luck to all!

For more book news, check out Books and Things, for Steampunk Week is about to begin over there.

I'm entertained by the slow decrease of "steampunk is so over" articles and the slow increase of "why has steampunk lasted so long?" articles. Not so much a flash in the pan as a low, steady shimmer, it seems.

This weekend marks the opening of the Great American Hall of Wonders at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, which celebrates the technological innovations of the 19th century. Go if you can!

Doctor Fantastique's Show of Wonders is, well, fantastic and wondrous, and also keeps one up to date on steampunk happenings.

For the artists among us: Contemplate the offerings at Vintage Printable, and marvel at Nemo Gould's recycled and reimagined trophy heads. The first piece is beautifully Cthulhuesque.
