Many thanks to Anne C. Perry, Jared Shurin and Den Patrick of Pornokitsch for the stellar steampunk party held at Blackwells, Charing Cross Road, London yesterday! Orbit team members Anna Gregson, James Long and I had a wonderful time chatting with all the talented guests Pornokitsch had invited. Here are some photos of the event:
The novels PARASOL PROTECTORATE by Gail Carringer and THE WIND-UP GIRL by Paolo Bacigalupi take pride of place among the steampunk titles selected for the evening.
The boys compare gun sizes. Mark de Jager, James Long from Orbit and Den Patrick from Pornokitsch.
The Guardian at the Gate! This squid was guarding the entrance to the evening…
You can barely see Jared giving his welcome speech, above the large crowd the event has drawn!
