Piratefest Las Vegas is on and scheduled for April 21-23 at Craig Ranch Regional Park. Check the website at http://www.piratefestlv.com/steampunk.html for specifics. Are you ready to add some pirate to your steam?
All fans of the Steampunk genre will find a home here. Steampunk is many things to many people. It includes science fiction by the likes of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne, the gothic horror of Mary Shelly's Frankenstein, and the gaslight romance of Studio Foglio's Girl Genius.
But we're not just a literary group. Fans of costuming as Victorian-style mad-scientists or air-ship crews are especially welcome. Do not worry if you do not yet have "appropriate attire" for the dress code is not enforced.
To quote my good friend Prof. Phineas G. Malaprop, "Steampunk is history that never was from a much more elegant time. It is a time where complex clockwork automatons walk the earth while majestic airships rule the skies."
