Her Royal Majesty’s Steampunk Symposium – 2013

Next weekend I’m honored to be a literary guest at Her Royal Majesty’s Steampunk Symposium aboard the Queen Mary docked in Long Beach, California. Other guests include Bruce Boxleitner, Phil and Kaja Foglio, Unwoman, and Dino Staats. You can learn more about the convention at http://hrmsteam.com.

I was one of the guests last year and I had a fantastic time. The Queen Mary is a wonderful venue for a steampunk event. The grand old ship sets the scene and most of the attendees were in costume. Tourists visiting the Queen Mary wondered if they had fallen into a time warp.

At this point, I’m scheduled to be on several panels. I’ll be giving an updated version of my Victorian Astronomy presentation, plus I’ll be discussing Steampunk Poetry, writing steampunk in a shared world, and Dino Staats and I will once again delve the fine line between magic and science that existed in Victorian days.

Last year, one of the things I was asked most often is whether any of my steampunk books were available as ebooks. Unfortunately, at that point Owl Dance had just been released and was only available in paper. Now, there are several ebooks available that contain my steampunk tales. Here are a few of the ones that are available. Clicking the covers will take you to their pages at Amazon.com. Although Owl Dance is currently a Kindle exclusive ebook, both Revolution of Air and Rust and Gears and Levers can be purchased at other sites such as Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, and the Kobo ebook store.

I’ll have these and more in print and will be happy to autograph them for you at the convention! I hope to see you there.

  1. CONGRATULATIONS!!! What a wonderful time you will have. Us, commoners, will expect a story and pics! You deserve this and let us, struggling, live vicariously through you! Too funny, have fun! Thanks, Emily

    • Thanks, Emily! Yeah, I’ve been going to conventions for some time. In that time, I’ve gotten to know a lot of good folks who are really supportive of my work like Kim and Michael behind the scenes at HRM Steam. I wouldn’t be there if not for them. I’ll do my best to get pictures. My real problem is that I’m often having so much fun that I forget that I have my camera with me! Take care and have a great week! David
