Over on my other weblog, Fridays are dedicated to "links from others," which means I post all the stuff people have sent me over the week. Suddenly I'm getting an influx of fantastic links that are steampunk-related...so we start with the links from others! Many thanks to everyone - I appreciate it tremendously.
For slightly less expensive steampunky works of art, the crafter known as burrowburrow has some fantastic creatures for sale - the ramand the antelopeare especially great, and now there's a jellyfishas well!
I almost never wish I was a kid again (I liked life a lot better as I got older!), but it would almost be worth going back in time to high school if it meant I could participate in the Shared Worlds program at Wofford College this summer. On the faculty is Jeff VanderMeer, who was last mentioned on here as he was busily autographing steampunk anthologies and drawing blimps.
If you're trying to answer the question "so what's this steampunk stuff all about, anyway?" from various people, you can direct them to this 25-page illustrated article on the idea! It may not answer their questions, but at least it'll keep them busy for a while.
For those of us who love Mateusz Skutnik's Flash games, it's an exciting time, for Daymare Town 2 is out and available to play! This one even has hot air balloons!
And finally, for the wealthy interior designers among us (?), the room divider and sticker options at dViderhave great potential. There are jellyfishdesigns for your Nautilus theme! And ironworkdesigns for your Victorian study! And trainsfor, um, whatever you like!
