I am so incredibly excited to be included in this awesome anthology, along with writers I really love. I am looking forward to reading them all! My story, 'One Last Interruption Before We Begin,' is a bit of a secret love letter to a certain building in Penang, as well as a continuation of my steampunky-Malaysia universe. Also there are ladies.

I am also excited about the fact that there are three (3!) Chinese-Malaysian writers included in this anthology. How cool is that? I think I might be the only Australian though (which is cool, too).

Anyway, I am looking forward to it, and I hope you are, too!

Wow!

I think the fact that it's lesbian steampunk and includes you may actually be enough to overcome my inherent dislike of short stories :) Especially since I really like the one story I read from the previous anthology (The Effluent Engine)

Well, I understand that Zen has written an 11000 word novella to round out the anthology, so that might be long enough to not count as a short story for you? :oD

Mine is 9,600 words long and I think some of the others are on the lengthy side too. =D

Btw, "a bit of a secret love letter to a certain building in Penang" is an awesome advertisement for your story and now I really want to read it.

Heya - doing my quarterly actually reading Dreamwidth thing. Congratulations on placing your story in this anthology!

I remember you were talking about putting up your notes on your con steampunk panel experience not too long ago - did you ever get around to it? I had an interest in how it would go down.

Actually, my write up is on my list of things to do today! With everything else going on in June and July it got forgotten, but I hope to post it in the next day or two. I almost got into fisticuffs with some people is the short summary.

Great. Looking forward to the blow by blow account. I'm assuming the very suggestion steampunk has a political dimension at all offended some.
