Because steampunk continues to be a genre that fascinates me, I present to you a third steampunk event for the year...

Old Skewl Steampunk

The event name was sparked by the phrase, old skewlz steampunk from author Nathalie Gray when referring to her ebook, Mechanical Rose which will be featured. It is a taste of the steampunk genre before it became what it is today.

For this event, I thought it would be fun to give a brief introduction by way of books.

Perhaps your interest will be piqued to try one?

Oh, and do let me know if you do!

Or if you are already well acquainted, feel free to make recommendations of books you have enjoyed in comments.

In any case, grab a notebook and pen and be prepared to take notes.

Final Exams will be held at the end of the event.

And, you thought it was vacation time ;-D
