- silviamg has a Mexican Steampunk short story, Distant Deeps or Skies, in Expanded Horizons. Well worth a read.
- Speaking of Stempunk in Expanded Horizons, check out James Ng's The Key Keeper. And on back to his site for more.
- Yes, I'm a partisan in Professor Elemental's beef with Mr. B. Elemental is actually a rapper and a Steampunk. Elemental actually shows a social awareness in his work. Elemental is actually fun to listen to. Mr. B is a washed up Britpop reject who describes himself as "re-acquainting Hip-Hop with the Queen's English from whence it came." How much fail can be squeezed into a single sentence fragment?
How does one "re-acquaint hip-hop with the Queen's English from whence it came" when hip-hop and Queen's English are distantly related? They may share the same aunt-by-marriage but that hardly qualifies hip-hop as progeny of Queen's English.

I'm pretty sure it's by being a washed up Britpop reject who still buys into a British imperialist narrative and thinks covering actual rap tunes in Received Pronunciation is rapping. I tried rolling the term "hipster douchebag" in there, but the phrase deserves to stand on it's own.
