Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

Advance Review of Dieselpunk: an Anthology

By now you may have heard that Dallas-based Twit Publishing, purveyor of a popular Pulp Quarterly, is putting out a Dieselpunk short story anthology called, well, Dieselpunk: an Anthology.  It's the first of its kind that I am aware of.  What you might not know is that advance reviews are now available for its eight stories!

Twit alumni David DeMar has reviewed the stories, spoiler free, on his blog.  The first four stories, including  “Charlie Shaw and the Belfast Terror,” by C S Nelson,   “The Incident at Sycamore Ridge” by Gary Madden,  Lara Ek’s “Missy Gin and the Trouble She was In,” and “Yankee Diesel Dandy” by Jeremy Simmons, are reviewed here on Aug 22 while the last four, Jack Philpott’s “Cocktails on the Street of Bones*,” “Dex Puncher, American Hero” by Nick Keller, Frank R Sjodin’s “The Changing of the Cogs,” and “The Phallus of Osiris” by Craig Gabrysch (also lead editor),  are reviewed here on Aug 23.

Perusing the reviews, or for that matter the titles alone, gives one a good sense that the folks at Twit have a good grasp on Dieselpunk. There's also a lot of information and some previews of the cover art in progress at Twit's Blog.

So read and enjoy!


* In the name of full disclosure I have a horse in this race, being the Jack Philpott that wrote the fifth story in the anthology (and who doesn't like a good fifth?).  I have not read anyone else's story and can't comment on them, but Mr. DeMar has me stoked for them!

That's fantastic. I've been given an advance preview of the book and I loved your story, Cap'n. In fact, not knowing it was you that wrote it, I thought of you when I read it the Cocktails on the Street of Bones.

I know the owners of Twit Publishing and they are very active in both the Steampunk and Dieselpunk community here in Texas. They've even attended North Texas Dieselpunks meetings. They are fantastic guys.

The stories in this anthology are absolutely some of the best short fiction I have ever read. I highly recommend it.

BTW, I also have a connection to the anthology. However, I'm not telling what that is yet. :)

Stay in touch
