Steampunk & Glamour Magic: A Retrospective & Reading

posted in: almost famous | 0

 

On Sunday, May 7th at 11:30a at The Steampunk World’s Fair, I will be giving a reading as part of the Nightshade Society track:

Steampunk is now rich with memes and has its place in pop culture, but what was it like before Steampunk was an established subculture? Where does Steampunk overlap with glamour magic and the occult?

Deborah Castellano reflects on ten years of her experience with both from her time starting the first Steampunk convention to now, waiting for her first book to be published this summer with Llewellyn. She will be reading from her current essay and taking questions if time allows.

 

Come say hello!
