  1. I just purchased Vol 8 and am very disappointed. Steampunk is not just throwing any trinket or do-dad together onto something that might be old or looks old. Very few of the submissions meet what I consider Steampunk. Just because you glue on a watch or clock part does not mean it automatically becomes steampunk. This is just junk thrown together. If you want to get a better idea what steampunk really means is to think of these 3 things; the Borg from Star Trek, Capt Nemo from 'The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen' and Mad Max desert outlaws. Combine all 3 especially the dress of Victorian London and the gritty industrialization of the Borg and you come close. Unfortunately the so called artists in this magazine fail to understand that. Put a clock hand or gear on it and POOF! its Steampunk.
