  1. The Mary Sue Interview: The Brass Giant‘s Brooke Johnson on Her Steampunk Engineer Heroine

    Brooke Johnson's The Brass Giant is set in an alternate-history version of London, filled with brassy, beautiful steampunk tech—but is still inhabited by humans with all their flaws. Female Engineer Petra Wade is barred from practicing her trade because she's a woman, but she's a prodigy—under her care, machines sing; they work brilliantly, and Petra knows she was born to be a mechanist. We spoke with Johnson about her new book, the steampunk world, and her rad female protagonist.

  10. Mall Cops Call Actual Cops On Carousel-Riding Cosplayers

    What would Robin Sparkles have to say about this?

    Mall cops in San Diego did nothing to improve the reputation of their hilarious profession this month when they evicted a small group of steam punk cosplayers from the Westfield Plaza Camino Real shopping center in Carlsbad--and then called actual cops on the "riff raff." I mean, I don't like Firefly either, but come on.

  13. Epic Steampunk Wedding Has Everything: A Robo-butler, An Octopus Cake, and Classy Duds Galore

    Oh My Stars and Garters

    This Steampunk wedding really takes the cake (har har) when it comes to doing marriage ceremonies in ambitious and unconventional ways! We got permission from the bride to show off her awesome wedding photos, the highlights of which are a striped wedding cake with octopi instead of figurines at the top, mini monorail table settings, and most of all: a ring-bearing robot built and designed by Grant Imahara, friend of the happy couple. How awesome is that? If you want to see more pictures of the wedding, check out the fantastic marital details in the article over on Offbeat Bride. Congratulations to the bride and groom, and may every wedding be as epic as yours! (photos by Pixievision Photography)

  14. Top Panels to Attend or Keep an Eye on at San Diego Comic-Con 2013

    Joss Whedon, Matt Smith, and Neil Patrick Harris are just a few I would like to hug. A lot.

    After spending more time than is healthy perusing the entire schedule for San Diego Comic-Con, my initial response was to considering begging for a ticket to San Diego. I would tell you what I'd do for it, but putting that in writing might be illegal. Suffice it to say: The multitude of panels look so incredible, it is almost impossible to decide which you (assuming you are lucky enough to go!) ought to attend. Worry not, gentle reader: Below is the list of 50 events I would mainline caffeine, wear hideous athletic sneakers, and maybe work on that whole being-in-two-places-at-once-issue to attend, helpfully divided into categories of interest.

  16. Why Isn’t This Steampunk AT-AT Liquor Cabinet Already in My Posession?

    It's a shiny science fiction reference full of booze! Those are all of my favorite things!

    Oh my God. Would you look at this thing? This gorgeous piece of art that amazing woodworker Colin Johnson has produced. It's a steampunk-inspired liquor cabinet made to resemble the walking AT-ATs from The Empire Strike Back. It probably doesn't do any actual walking since it's mostly made from mahogany and brass trim, but that's for the best, really. God forbid your alcohol start to walk away from you while you're trying to get at it. That's a recipe for disaster.
