Edittorrent has been focusing on steampunk the past few days -- go here, here, and here -- and I wanted to bring it to everyone's attention.
As a side note, if you don't already follow edittorrent, then you really need to rectify that. Alicia and Theresa, the two editors who run that blog, spend their time outside of their publishing-industry jobs to help educate writers in good characterization, enhancing the stakes of your novel, and generally making sure you put your best written foot forward.
They remind me a lot of the editing professor I had in college. You might remember that I posted about said mentor a long while back (or not, seeing as many of you weren't reading the blog then), but suffice to say that the advice Alicia and Theresa dole out is tre useful. Go read.
