Hello! The drawing for Vintage Tomorrows will be held either tonight or tomorrow, and will be posted sometime this week. Then it’s a break from giveaways for a short while. Thanks to everyone who participated, and there will be more in the future!

So while we were occupied with book-wrangling, a lot happened in the steampunk world. For instance, the papal conclave was held, and Business Insider (!) did a story on the “steampunk contraption” used by the conclave in selecting a new pope.

Jim Butcher, author of The Dresden Files series, signed on for a new series in the world of steampunk.

Armor Games came out with Steampunk Tower, another fun (and free!) steampunk-themed game. I got to Level 4 before falling apart, strategy-wise.

Have you seen the Cryptohistorians yet? They are all sorts of awesome, and deserve huge amounts of attention.

Gears and Steam moved from LiveJournal to Tumblr. And speaking of Tumblr, the beautiful Nowhereland posts gorgeous Art Deco images, and also photographs such as this beauty from the 1880s and this rebel from the 1890s. It’s definitely worth a look!
