I’ve been bopping about a few steampunk discussions recently, Gentle Reader. Over on Erotic Horizons I’m being quoted in a blog, and I had a blast participating in the Romance Diva’s Steampunk Workshop forum. Some really great discussions got going there.
In conjunction, I’ve also done a massive overhaul on my steampunk reading list.
