Article/Afterward: Winding Down the House: Taking the Steam out of Steampunk: Amal El-Mohtar
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!

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)

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.

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