Yesterday I shared a reading with catrambo, at which we each read parts of longer works. In her case, "Narrative of the Life of a Beast", and in my case, "The Baby Killers". Hers is available in the current issue of Realms of Fantasy, mine will be out next year from PS Publishing as a single-title novella. I can best describe the style as "high bugfuck steampunk." I think I went a little over the top in the reading.
Also a panel on "Steampunk Literature 101" with blackaire, 2muchexposition and johnnyeponymous. The room was packed, perhaps 70 people in a space with seating for about 40. The panel was a lot of fun, and I think the audience enjoyed it.
Still, as calendula_witch said, "How could anything be more interesting than sitting and watching all of the costumes. Nothing could be more fantastic."
