The collected issues (1 through 7 for those confused by the odd wording of the listing) of Steampunk Magazine reflect a wobbly start but a gathering momentum that, reading the editorials, may not have been present in fact - the magazine went through at least one lengthy hiatus and a "change of staff".
The overriding impression I got - and it may be the basest of calumnies unsupported as it is by any evidence outside of the magazine itself and the pitiful Wikipedia page - was that much of the magazine was written by the same person. Yes there are interviews and how-tos and so forth, but the stories often featured heavy polemic echoed in the editorials, and the motifs front and center in some of the early stories were suggestively congruent (and to this reader, sometimes unintentionally hysterically funny).
The editor is pushing a punk anarchist agenda and selling the magazine to a radical audience. Of course, that isn't who is buying it in this edition.
The stories are quite shaky to start with, but become very workmanlike in later issues. Less time is spent obsessing with what people look like and more on what they think and do - which is good if you are trying to push an ideology, even one as wooly and ill-defined as Steampunk.Read more ›
