Q: What got you into Steampunk?
AJS: In late 2011, I ran across a webzine called Doctor Fantastique’s Show of Wonders – sadly now extinct. I started off as a contributing writer to the site and soon after became the Managing Editor The gig lasted for all of 2012 and put me in touch with steampunks from around the world—writers, artists, readers and reviewers, costumers, the whole circus!
