a writer of steampunk n. 2
Personally, I think Victorian fantasies are going to be the next big thing, as long as we can come up with a fitting collective term for Powers, Blaylock and myself. Something based on the appropriate technology of that era; like ‘steam-punks’, perhaps.
If California gonzo or the reigning punks (cyber and steam) don’t satisfy your taste for the unpredictable, try Jo Clayton’s Blue Magic.
