PANELIST BIOS:

MODERATOR: Science fiction & fantasy editor DIANA M. PHO (Tor Books) has curated and moderated the Geeks of Color panel at New York Comic Con for the last four years. Her NYCC panels have been featured on CBS’s Inside Edition, MSN.com, and Ebony Magazine. She has been interviewed about fandom for many media outlets, including BBC America, the Travel Channel, HGTV, and the Science Channel; the websites Airship Ambassador, Racialicious, and NerdCaliber. Authors she works with at Tor include George R. R. Martin, Robert Jordan, A.J. Hartley, and Lara Elena Donnelly.

K ARSENAULT RIVERA was born in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico. She moved to Brooklyn as a toddler and has been complaining about the heat ever since. She’s been writing as long as she can remember—from looseleaf fanfiction passed around her fifth grade class to fifty page character backstories. She writes her stories to combine her experiences as a queer woman of color with her passion for the high fantasy genre. All of her work features women loving women who take control of their own destinies. These days those stories have evolved into whole books. Her debut novel, THE TIGER’S DAUGHTER, will be released on October 3rd.

REGINA FLATH is the senior designer at Random House Children’s Books and the designer of several NYTBS books, including WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI, SUICIDE NOTES FROM BEAUTIFUL GIRLS, and many others. Most recently she designed the backlist repackages and new front list covers for Tamora Pierce. She has been in publishing design since 2009. Regina is hapa (half Filipino, half American). When she’s not designing books, she can be found doing aerial arts, fiber arts. . . all the arts. She is a friend to imaginary creatures everywhere. Visit her online at reginaflath.com and most everywhere @reginaflath.

JES NEGRON has been working in media for over five years, first with books and most recently in video games. As a literary agent, she scoped out talent and managed her authors’ careers, working with projects ranging from kids’ picture books to adult epics. When she moved to video game publishing, she had the pleasure of working as an editor for the most popular PC game in the world, for which she was involved with regional publishing operations and content creation. Some of her projects over the years have included script writing, producing animations, and writing for a mobile application.

A huge proponent of diversity in media, Jes has pushed for more inclusive representation in both the books she looked to represent and the video game characters she had a hand in marketing. In the past, she’s volunteered with writing workshops to introduce local teens to the world of character design and she also runs CritsForGood, an inbox open to writers of color for free feedback on their queries.

EBONY LADELLE currently works as a Senior Marketing Manager at HarperCollins. Before HarperCollins, Ebony worked as a marketing manager at Simon & Schuster, where she had the pleasure to work with authors such as Shonda Rhimes, Mary Higgins Clark, and Jessica Knoll and also acquired her first book. MUSLIM GIRL by Amani Al-khatahtbeh published with rave reviews, including a New York Times Book Review. In her previous roles, Ebony has also worked on campaigns for Atul Gawande, Elizabeth Kolbert, and Andy Cohen. She holds a BA in Journalism from Howard University and received her MS in Publishing from Pace University in 2009. You can follow her on Twitter @coloringbooks.

Signal-boost: Steampunk Connection, a feature-length documentary

Last year, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by French-Canadian steampunk François Bonneau for an upcoming steampunk documentary directed by Annie Deniel, called Steampunk Connection. A quick summary of their project can be found on their page:

Daniel, François, Adam and Clara are active members of the unique steampunk community whose aesthetics are inspired by science-fiction and the Victorian era. Their eccentric – and upcycled – creations force us to think about our own living and consumer habits in this digital age.

Their encounters and their own artistic journey calls us to reflect on the impact technology has on our own lives. Beyond the cosplay aspect (which is the practise of dressing up as characters), these artists are keen DIYers who believe that knowledge is better shared. They also draw on the romantic values of a bygone era and make etiquette and decorum cool again.

Featuring this passionate community is an original way to talk about human needs in the digital era.This film is for everyone as the themes it explores are universal.

Annie dropped a note requesting steampunks to submit footage and pictures that they can feature as part of the documentary’s promotions:

“‘Hey steampunks!

For a wonderful international documentary about the community steampunk, we are looking for images of incredible steampunk machines with their inventor.

We are looking more specific places (ex: cafe place) vehicles or practical inventions than costumes or accessories excepted if it reflects the cultural aspect.

The footage can be filmed with a simple iPhone and send by we transfer (https://wetransfer.com) at this address : steampunkconnection@gmail.com. It’s free.

It’s an opportunity to show your work and of course your name will be credited! If you need more information, you can join us at the same e-mail address.

We are here to answer at your questions with pleasure!”

Hope folks will be able to help & boost this wonderful little film about the community.

Steampunk Hands Around the World: Making Life Better Giveaway! The Guns Above by Robyn Bennis

9780765388766

For the last week of our Steampunk Hands Around the World book giveaway series, let me introduce you to Robyn Bennis’s The Guns Above, a high-flying adventure full of wit, bravado, fancy clothes, and big explosions. A brief description:

They say it’s not the fall that kills you.

For Josette Dupre, the Corps’ first female airship captain, it might just be a bullet in the back.

On top of patrolling the front lines, she must also contend with a crew who doubts her expertise, a new airship that is an untested deathtrap, and the foppish aristocrat Lord Bernat, a gambler and shameless flirt with the military know-how of a thimble. He’s also been assigned to her ship to catalog her every moment of weakness and indecision.

When the enemy makes an unprecedented move that could turn the tide of the war, can Josette deal with Bernat, rally her crew, and survive long enough to prove herself?

“Steampunky navy-in-the-air military tale full of sass and terrific characters. Great storytelling. Loved it.” —Patricia Briggs

Click after the jump for details on how to enter! Thanks for allowing along, everyone, and hope you enjoy the rest of Steampunk Hands this month.

EDIT: Congrats to Connor Drexler as our winner!

Steampunk Hands Around the World: Making Life Better Giveaway! Amberlough by Lara Elena Donnelly

9780765383815

Welcome to Week Two of our Steampunk Hands Around the World book giveaway series!

Next up: enter a world of spies, decadence, and revolution with Lara Elena Donnelly’s Amberlough. A brief description:

Covert agent Cyril DePaul thinks he’s good at keeping secrets, especially from Aristide Makricosta. They suit each other: Aristide turns a blind eye to Cyril’s clandestine affairs, and Cyril keeps his lover’s moonlighting job as a smuggler under wraps.

Cyril participates on a mission that leads to disastrous results, leaving smoke from various political fires smoldering throughout the city. Shielding Aristide from the expected fallout isn’t easy, though, for he refuses to let anything – not the crooked city police or the mounting rage from radical conservatives – dictate his life.

Enter streetwise Cordelia Lehane, a top dancer at the Bumble Bee Cabaret and Aristide’s runner, who could be the key to Cyril’s plans—if she can be trusted. As the twinkling lights of nightclub marquees yield to the rising flames of a fascist revolution, these three will struggle to survive using whatever means — and people — necessary. Including each other.

Combining the espionage thrills of le Carré with the allure of an alternate vintage era, Amberlough will thoroughly seduce and enthrall you.

“James Bond by way of Oscar Wilde.” —Holly Black

“Sparkling with slang, full of riotous characters, and dripping with intrigue, Amberlough is a dazzling romp through a tumultuous, ravishing world.” —Robert Jackson Bennett, winner of the Shirley Jackson Award and the Edgar Award

“An astonishing first novel!” —World Fantasy Award-winning author Ellen Kushner

There is also this incredible book trailer:

What I wrote and edited in 2016

I haven’t done this in previous years, but since becoming more involved in the SF/F community (and because people have asked — thanks people!), here is a list of things I published & edited in 2016 when nomination season comes around for the Hugos.

I’m saying right off that I do not qualify for Best Editor for Long, simply because I haven’t have enough novels published this year, and I don’t qualify under Short, which applies to anthologies and magazines. But I will add that if you enjoyed any of the works by authors I have worked with, it would certainly not be amiss to support them!

For those curious whether Beyond Victoriana itself qualifies for anything, it could for Best Fanzine or Best Related Work. The blog celebrated 7 years online in October, and I figured that is an accomplishment in itself. 🙂

Things I Wrote

The Airship Ashanti in the 2015 Internationa Steampunk Symposium. They were that year's winners of the Airship Games.

On Crafting a Subcultural Lifestyle: Objects and the Search for Home in Steampunk – A 4-part series that was my contribution to Steampunk Hands Around the World for this year.

Things I Edited

Short Story

9780765390509Everything that Isn’t Winter” by Margaret Killjoy

Novelettes

9780765389442A Dead Djinn in Cairo” by P. Djeli Clark
Egypt, 1912. In an alternate Cairo infused with the otherworldly, the Ministry of Alchemy, Enchantments and Supernatural Entities investigate disturbances between the mortal and the (possibly) divine. What starts off as an odd suicide case for Special Investigator Fatma el-Sha’arawi leads her through the city’s underbelly as she encounters rampaging ghouls, saucy assassins, clockwork angels, and plot that could unravel time itself, in P. Djèlí Clark’s Tor.Com Original, A Dead Djinn in Cairo.

9780765392022“Chains” by A. J. Hartley
Anglet Sutonga is more realistic than most teenagers, but still dreams of rising above the impoverished streets of Bar-Selehm. When an opportunity comes along, will she take it? And what does she risk in order not to throw away her shot? A novelette set before the events of A.J. Hartley’s Steeplejack.

9780765391964“The Three Lives of Sonata James” by Lettie Prell
In a cyber-enhanced, futuristic Chicago, Sonata knows near-immortality is achievable through downloading her mind into a cyborg body after death.

Novels

9780765383426Steeplejack by A. J. Hartley
Thoughtfully imaginative and action-packed, Steeplejack is New York Times bestselling A. J. Hartley’s YA debut set in a 19th-century South African fantasy world

Seventeen-year-old Anglet Sutonga lives repairing the chimneys, towers, and spires of the city of Bar-Selehm. Dramatically different communities live and work alongside each other. The white Feldish command the nation’s higher echelons of society. The native Mahweni are divided between city life and the savannah. And then there’s Ang, part of the Lani community who immigrated over generations ago as servants and now mostly live in poverty on Bar-Selehm’s edges.

When Ang is supposed to meet her new apprentice Berrit, she finds him dead. That same night, the Beacon, an invaluable historical icon, is stolen. The Beacon’s theft commands the headlines, yet no one seems to care about Berrit’s murder—except for Josiah Willinghouse, an enigmatic young politician. When he offers her a job investigating his death, she plunges headlong into new and unexpected dangers.

Meanwhile, crowds gather in protests over the city’s mounting troubles. Rumors surrounding the Beacon’s theft grow. More suspicious deaths occur. With no one to help Ang except Josiah’s haughty younger sister, a savvy newspaper girl, and a kindhearted herder, Ang must rely on her intellect and strength to resolve the mysterious link between Berrit and the missing Beacon before the city descends into chaos.

“A richly realized world, an intensely likable character, and a mystery to die for.” — Cory Doctorow, New York Times-bestselling author

high-stakesHigh Stakes, edited by George R. R. Martin & Melinda Snodgrass
(In this case, I was the book’s in-house editor, since obviously GRRM is series editor for Wild Cards.)

Perfect for old fans and new readers alike, High Stakes (Wild Cards) delves deeper into the world of aces, jokers, and the hard-boiled men and women of the Fort Freak police precinct in a pulpy, page-turning novel of superheroics and Lovecraftian horror.

After the concluding events of Lowball, Officer Francis Black of Fort Freak, vigilante joker Marcus “The Infamous Black Tongue” Morgan, and ace thief Mollie “Tesseract” Steunenberg get stuck in Talas, Kazakhstan. There, the coldblooded Baba Yaga forces jokers into an illegal fighting ring, but her hidden agenda is much darker: her fighters’ deaths serve to placate a vicious monster from another dimension. When the last line of defense against this world weakens, all hell breaks loose, literally….

The Committee in New York sends a team of aces to investigate. One by one, each falls victim to evil forces–including the dark impulses within themselves. Only the perseverance of the most unlikely of heroes has a chance of saving the world before utter chaos erupts on Earth.

Edited by #1 New York Times bestselling author George R. R. Martin, High Stakes features the writing talents of Melinda M. Snodgrass, John Jos. Miller, David Anthony Durham, Caroline Spector, Stephen Leigh, and Ian Tregillis.

9780765376565Chapel of Ease by Alex Bledsoe

The latest installment in Alex Bledsoe’s critically-acclaimed Tufa series that Kirkus Reviews calls “powerful, character-driven drama…a sheer delight.” (starred review)

When Matt Johansson, a young New York actor, auditions for “Chapel of Ease,” an off-Broadway musical, he is instantly charmed by Ray Parrish, the show’s writer and composer. They soon become friends; Matt learns that Ray’s people call themselves the Tufa and that the musical is based on the history of his isolated home town. But there is one question in the show’s script that Ray refuses to answer: what is buried in the ruins of the chapel of ease?

As opening night approaches, strange things begin to happen. A dreadlocked girl follows Ray and spies on him. At the press preview, a strange Tufa woman warns him to stop the show. Then, as the rave reviews arrive, Ray dies in his sleep.

Matt and the cast are distraught, but there’s no question of shutting down: the run quickly sells out. They postpone opening night for a week and Matt volunteers to take Ray’s ashes back to Needsville. He also hopes, while he’s there, to find out more of the real story behind the play and discover the secret that Ray took to his grave.

Matt’s journey into the haunting Appalachian mountains of Cloud County sets him on a dangerous path, where some secrets deserve to stay buried.
