RL Steampunk: The Gatehouse Gazette


It seems as if this week has a pronounced number of Steampunk magazines "hitting" the market (perhaps the New Babbage Urchins will be selling them on the street corners)! In addition to the SL Primgraph, which will officially be released tomorrow, another RL Steampunk work is already in circulation.

The Gatehouse Gazette, issue 1, has emerged with a number of extraordinary articles that appeal to both those of the Steampunk genre, and to those interested in a bit beyond (e.g. Dieselpunk). The first issue includes...

An in-depth analysis of what exactly "Dieselpunk" is, including comparisons and references to the popular literature that provides the framework for the genre...


Two articles by Miss Hilde Heyvaert, Steampunk Fashionista extraordinaire - one concerning RL Steampunk wardrobes and a second regarding Steampunk Fashion in contompary culture...

An interview with Mr. Toby Frost, author of "Space Captain Smith", a Steampunk novel...

An in depth article on Victorian male societal norms...

and many more Steampunk articles. Needless to say, I heartily recommend a read of this up-and-coming periodical. To read its inaugarl article, please turn your browers to:
