Steampunk out today and on Boing Boing too

Steampunk is out and in stores today. It's not too late to get your sale priced, personalized copy from Ann and Jeff VanderMeer. Signed and with your own hand drawn, one of a kind zeppelin lovingly rendered by the multi-talented editors. Seriously. Order by May 15th...

Cory Doctorow's an old-school steampunk fan, and he's just enthusiastically Boing Boinged Steampunk:

"Last month, I mentioned Ann and Jeff Vandermeer's Steampunk anthology in passing, but the book deserves better than that. I've just spent several highly entertaining hours with my advance review copy and I'm knocked out. What a great piece of work this is, from the fascinating triumvirate of essays that recount the history of steampunk in literature and describe its contemporary appeal to the top-notch works of fiction inside, from forgotten proto-steampunk gems by Michael Moorcock and James Blaylock to contemporary pieces from Neal Stephenson, Jay Lake, Ted Chiang and Paul Di Filippo (among many others). Summer's almost here - time to do some leisure reading, and what better place to start than here?"

Incidentally, Cory's YA novel, Little Brother, is just out this week. I'm waiting on my copy and you should be too.
