I knew I had to record a little bit of history when I saw this in my World Fantasy Convention 2011 program:

Founders of Steampunk – Saturday, 1:00 pm

Steampunk was first defined in a letter over 20 years ago. The writer of that letter, and two of the authors whose work helped define the subgenre, talk about their inspirations and look at where steampunk literature has gone.

John Berlyne (M), James Blaylock, K. W. Jeter, Tim Powers

The panel was fascinating, and a lot of fun too. K.W. Jeter (the man who coined the term ‘steampunk’) was hilarious. You can find his novels at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. When I talked to him, he was especially enthusiastic about his new Kim Oh books.

If you like the video, please share it with someone else who might enjoy it.

Nice, Nathan.

At the end of the con, I hung out and chatted with K.W. and his wife, Robin, Mike Stackpole, and others. Fun times.

I don’t know how I didn’t meet you at WFC. Sorry I didn’t. But I missed this panel and I’m very glad that you recorded it.

Thanks! It’s wonderful seeing how funny these guys are.
