So, I have this habit of occasionally doing vanity searches on Google. I mean, I think everyone does it. Today, though, I found something I was not expecting.

This book. Steaming into a Victorian Future, by Julie Ann Taddeo, which is basically a study of literary steampunk.

Including the erotica.

Including Carnal Machines! (And, I might add, two of Circlet Press’ steampunk anthologies!)

Gee, I’ve never been a footnote before. Or a citation. Pretty nifty!


I ended up getting the (handsome, hardback) book for Christmas as a consequence of bragging to loved ones about being in an actual scholarly bibliography.
