I am pleased to announce the launch of the inaugural issue of Steampunk Trails. We're not sure how people will react to this. There aren't a lot of publications out there that publish this stuff. There's a difference between the occasional odd story and something specializing in it. And we've got a few treats beside fiction as well. Our readers can even learn about dog goggles. Afterall, you can't take your dog to a steam event without goggles. One sacrifice I had to make is the little white dog with the goggles that's been on our Steampunk Trails blog. He didn't make it in the magazine. He's too low a resolution to work well in the world of digital publishing. He'll be back in some form--ready for adventure.
Steampunk Trails brings the world of steam and gadgets right to your fingertips. In this inaugural edition enter a world of machines with ill intent, hearts of gold, and evil. You will find assassins, unlikely heroes and people just trying to survive in a domain overrun by the establishment. Encounter places where mosquitoes are actually useful and airships dominate the skies. Presenting a special feature from Carrie Vaughn and illustrated stories by O. M. Grey, Quincy Allen, Henrik Ramsager, Lyn McConchie, Vivian Caethe, Sam Knight, Rhye Manhattan, Mike Cervantes and more.
An ebook version will be available in a few weeks
