Our Fantastic Week Ahead: August 13, 2012

We are very excited this week to be celebrating the release of Tiffany Trent's new novel, The Unnaturalists, with an entire week of coverage devoted to steampunk!

We'll be featuring both a review of the book, as well as a post from Tiffany herself later this week, but to get us in the steampunk mood, here's a behind-the scenes peek at the creation of the cover of The Unnaturalists:

We have much more steampunk-related content for you this week as well!

We'll start things off this afternoon with Tyler Gegg's reflections on Phil and Kaja Fogilo's comic Girl Genius, and how the categorization of this series can shed helpful light on what steampunk is and does.  Later this week, R.J. Huneke will share his thoughts on Katsuhiro Otomo's anime film Steamboy and its importance to the steampunk genre.  And we'll be featuring steampunk inspired art in our fine arts column this week.

It's going to be a great week, and we hope you are able to come back often and see what we're up to.  Don't forget to add your thoughts in the comments for the chance to win marvelous prizes!
