International Steampunk Websites



"Zepplin (airship)" by Mr. Mikel Robinson
(His website, is located here).

As some may have noted, I've been slowly tweaking the blog to remove outdated adverts, adding new ones, and trying to improve things this corner of Steampunk, as I push Blogger to its creaky extremes. One item I've been wanting to add (but hadn't until recently), was a listing of "International Steampunk" sites (the term "non-English" seems a bit awkward). Nonetheless, I've made a small (and growing) list on the right side bar, including...


The "Laboratory of Time", a very well done Italian forum on Steampunk, at:


Steampunk SP, an extensive Castallian Spanish Steampunk Board, located at:


... and perhaps one of the best kept secrets of non-English Steampunk, Conselho Steampunk, perhaps one of the best designed and aesthetically impressive Steampunk sits on the internet. It is, from what I can deduce, the center of Brazilian Steampunk, providing not only genre news for Brazil, but also a regional clearing house for events, coordinating actvities between Rio, Sao Paulo, and Rio Grande do Sur. Sadly, there is no English translation for it, but even so, by all means visit this site, at:

May I invite you to a short visit to the Clockworker?

http://www.clockworker.de

It's a German Blog about Steampunk (the only active one I think), of course it's basically in German, but for example there is an article in English about the first German Steampunk Larp:

Dear Mr. Alex,

It is my pleasure to learn of Clockworker, and I have added it straight away! The site is very well presented, and the Hochzeitstorte article was most impressive. I look forward to reading the Clockworker (post-translation, my German is sadly lacking).
