I’m spending the week prepping for the start of the school year, and having a final end-of-summer hurrah with my mom, so I’m taking a little time off from blogging this week. To keep the steampunk vibe going for the week, however, I’m linking up some fun videos and photos.
First up are some great resources from Suzanne Lazear (who taught the steampunk writing course that I took back in July) for those interested in steampunk world-building and research.
Steampunk is also influencing Hollywood films, including the latest reboot of Alexandre Dumas’s The Three Musketeers, co-starring Matthew Macfayden and Orlando Bloom (check the flash of the awesome airship at 1:00):[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQd3MwT2fAM]
Finally, check out this great preview of Vintage Tomorrows, an upcoming documentary on the world of steampunk. It features authors Cherie Priest and Cory Doctorow, who top every ‘steampunk must-read’ list:[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TW5trrXS1e8]
