Fullsteam Ahead

Book cover, ''The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities''

Mix Victorian-era fashion and culture with powerful, futuristic machines and what do you get? Steampunk, a quirky subgenre of science fiction that is again growing in popularity. This weekend, a celebration of steampunk sponsored by Bull Spec Magazine comes to Fullsteam Brewery in Durham, North Carolina. 

Sci-fi authors Ann Vandermeer, Jeff Vandermeer and Mur Lafferty join guest host Isaac-Davy Aronson to talk about steampunk’s appeal and the possibilities of a retro-futuristic world.
