Happened upon an excellent bit of news the other day while visiting the Steampunk Empire.  It appears that at ImaginCon, in Birmingham, Alabama, in addition to the plenitude of events taking place during the festivities, there will be a "Steampunk Inventor's Alley"!  The most innovative and unique Steampunk crafters will be displaying their designs and devices, or as Miss ExLibris more succinctly states...

Steampunk makers, builders and modders are invited to display their work at ImagiCon, a full-scale Science Fiction & Fantasy convention in Birmingham, Alabamaon May 21 - 23, 2010.  ImagiCon boasts STRONG Steampunk programming with multiple panels and events each day.  The showcase event at ImagiCon is the Steampunk Inventors' Alley, where selected Steampunk artisans, crafters and inventors are invited to display and model their work during a two-hour programming section at the convention.  Some of the most brilliant makers in the Southeast have already been approved for the exhibition and there is room for still more!  Inquiries regarding participation at the Steampunk Inventors' Alley can be sent to alabamaceltic@yahoo.com .  For more details on ImagiCon and all of its Steampunk programming, visit www.ImagiCon.org.

Glad to have found you. I am a novelist and the next up will be Steampunk. I have fallen in love with the esthetic and the idea that science and discovery belong to us all...
