Steampunk magazine

Steampunk Magazine is a new $3 print/free PDF zine celebrating the steampunk aesthetic with fiction, art and articles. The premier issue is truly a thing of beauty with fiction by an interview with Michael Moorcock, a HOWTO for "electrolytic etching," and some very tasty use of recycled, gloomy Victorian woodcuts. Bravo!

Before the age of homogenization and micro-machinery, before the tyrannous efficiency of internal combustion and the domestication of electricity, lived beautiful, monstrous machines that lived and breathed and exploded unexpectedly at inconvenient moments. It was a time where art and craft were united, where unique wonders were invented and forgotten, and punks roamed the streets, living in squats and fighting against despotic governance through wit, will and wile.

Even if we had to make it all up.
