Hi there. First off, a technical announcement from Nicole:
Has anyone else not been getting the Folderol RSS feed? I deleted it from Bloglines and added it again using the feedburner link http://feeds.feedburner.com/Folderol. When I updated it the last post was always June 3rd. I went back and used this one: http://www.spookylibrarians.com/folderolatom.xml and it works fine now. Just an fyi in case anyone else has the same problem.
I changed the icon on the left, so it should default to the xml file. Sorry for any RSS issues - we shall see if we can get things back on track!

On to steampunk...

The literary wave continues! Ekaterina Sedia has a new book coming out soon titled The Alchemy of Stone, which looks really interesting. You have to love a story that includes a literal key to a heart.

Brendan sent a great site about the Singularity - is it coming? When will it happen? What will happen if/when it arrives? - as I was reading another article about how we haven't got time to wait around for the Singularity. I'm always of the opinion that the steampunk concept needs more punk in its steam, so I'm fascinated by this sort of thing.

If you've got a modern photo that would look even better aged, the Bakumatsu Koshashin Generator can work magic. I'm going to try this on some photos!

Silly fun is what you find at Silhouette Masterpiece Theatre. I especially like the Victoran DeLorean.

Russell Stutler is currently in Japan, but his annotated drawing of 221b Baker Street is completely British and completely wonderful. (The rest of his site is fantastic too!)
