Jeter at Steamcon III (Bellevue, WA Oct 14th - 16th 2011)
« Reply #10 on: April 27, 2011, 06:48:32 pm »


Have you ever wondered what the man who coined the term "steampunk" thinks steampunk is? We definitely have, so we've asked him to join in the conversation. Steamcon is extremely proud to announce that K.W. Jeter will be our author guest of honor for our fabulous third year!

K. W. Jeter is widely credited as having coined in 1987 the term “steampunk,” and is the author of Morlock Night and Infernal Devices, two of the earliest novels in the genre. In addition, he has written many other science fiction and thriller novels, including Dr. Adder, Farewell Horizontal, Soul Eater, and In the Land of the Dead. In addition to his writing career, he has worked as a researcher for the University of California Medical Center on AIDS-related bereavement issues with heroin addicts, and as a creative writing instructor for Portland State University in Oregon. After residences in England and Spain, he currently lives with his wife Geri in San Francisco, California – though that might change.

Morlock Night and Infernal Devices have been recently reprinted, with additional material, by Angry Robot; more details can be found at Mr. Jeter’s steampunk-related blog: http://www.steamword.com or at the  K. W. Jeter Information Site: http://www.kwjeter.com. His long-awaited sequel to Infernal Devices, titled Fiendish Schemes, will be available soon from Tor Books.

For all that they are worth, I have been thinking all the good thoughts your way that I can, hon.  You were missed last year.  Things have just got to get better.

Steamcon is proud to announce that Gary Gianni will be our Artist Guest of Honor!

Gary Gianni is an illustrator and author whose work has appeared in numerous books, text books, magazines, comics and newspapers. He began his career at the Chicago Tribune newspaper and worked as a television courtroom artist most notably chronicling the John Gacy murder trials. Later as a comic book artist, he drew characters such as the Shadow, Indiana Jones, Batman and Tom Strong. He also wrote and drew his own popular comic book series The Monstermen. Aside from writing for comics, Gianni has authored two books, John Henry and The Prince Valiant Page.

The numerous books illustrated by the artist include classic works by Melville, Verne, Wells, Stevenson, Burroughs and O’Henry. Among contemporary authors, Gianni has created drawings for the works of Ray Bradbury, Michael Moorcock and Michael Chabon. One of his most significant projects involved six years of producing hundreds of drawings and paintings for a series of books by fantasy author Robert E. Howard.

Gianni has received the Eisner Award for his work on Batman with writer Archie Goodwin and The Spectrum Award for his book illustrations from the The Savage Tales of Solomon Kane.

In 2004, The venerable comic strip artist John Cullen Murphy retired and asked Gianni to take up the artistic chores on the celebrated newspaper adventure comic strip Prince Valiant.

Gary Gianni is delighted to be attending Steamcon III:
“It took a year for me to illustrate a graphic novel edition of 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. The idea of celebrating the theme of 19th century romance , machinery and fantasy adventure with like -minded people is a party I don’t want to miss!”

Can't wait to attend! Wish it was earlier than October though, I'm not very patient when it comes to waiting for conventions.  :P

Blood and bloody ashes, I cant afford it...  To get my wife and myself out there for the weekend would be nearly $1400 (cheapest EVERYTHING), which is, unfortunatly, nearly 2 months worth of pay for me.

Hood's Balls under a big rock!  Ah well, time to start saving for Steamcon IV (although 20,000 Leagues sounds DIVINE!)...
Don't let these shakes go on, it's time we had a break from it. Send me to the rear! Where the Tides of Madness swell, and men sliding into Hell...

Oh please don't let these shakes go on...

Most delightful, this.  I've booked my passage and will "stand by" the engine room telegraph until "finished with engines" is signalled. 
My only regret is not having the proper advanced and unique ratings so as to serve as an active engine room crew member.  Perhaps someday I shall be qualified for such an honor.  The Nautilus is certainly most worthy of her reputation as the ultimate vessel of reknown.

Quick question to the organizers: I happen to know the editor of Bellevue Patch*, and she was wondering if it was possible to get a press pass for her bloggers, and I didn't see anything on the website about that, so I told her that I would ask here. Is it possible to get a press pass, and if so, how would one go about doing so?

Mr Bodewell, sorry, but the link doesn't work for me.

If you cut and paste the entire url, it works fine.  It just doesn't work as a clicky.  Hope that helps!
