Steampunk is so hot right now. We’re not kidding. The town of Waltham dedicated an entire weekend to it earlier this month. Forget vampires (drinking blood is so passé) — anachronistic Victorian history roleplay is the biggest thing in fantasy right now. Plus, we look pretty damn dapper in those top hats and spats. S.J. Chambers stops by Porter Square Books tonight to discuss The Steampunk Bible: An Illustrated Guide To The World Of Imaginary Airships, Corsets And Goggles, Mad Scientists, And Strange Literature, a compendium of steampunk’s evolution, with roots extending as far back as Jules Verne, to the social, musical, and cultural movement it is today. Chambers, along with genre artists and scholars, gives a multimedia presentation on the wide and wacky world of steampunk.
