steampowered ii and me about the place

My excuse is that I was in the process of moving to China when Steampowered II: More Lesbian Steampunk Stories was released, so it is with much embarrassment that I belatedly say: Steampowered II was launched! It is available for purchase as a print version (book depository, amazon us) or an e-version (torquere, amazon us, amazon uk), and I recommend it for you and all your friends! You should buy it!

It features a story by me! One Last Interruption Before We Begin. It is about a Malaysian Chinese port clerk, and features my love letter to a building and a meal, as well as continuing my obsession with world building a steampunk Malaysia.

And with thanks to Alex Dally MacFarlane, who recently pointed out that there are reviews for Steampowered II! They say some very nice things! Not only about the anthology itself (words such as awesome, solid and fun are used), but also about my own story! And this excites me, as it is the first anthology I have ever been featured in and that's always a lovely feeling, in and of itself. And it is a pretty great anthology! (I should know, I have read it)

Reviews:
I am so excited that people liked my story, and to be in such an awesome anthology!

ALSO, Jha interviewed me as part of the Steampowered II Roundtable! As usual I am very bad at answering questions, but Jha is very good at asking them. You can read my interview at Silver Goggles. And more recently than that, Jha interviewed me as part of her POC-Steampunks series; read the interview and see me babble about Our Colonial Past, being a SEA Steampunk, and steampunk in Australia!

In not related to me but related to steampunk news, Ay-Leen the Peacemaker was interviewed about Steampunk Jewellery and it is an awesome interview: you can read it at Decimonic. In it she talks about steampunk, jewellery, and cultural appropriation.
