Steampunk: an Interview with the VanderMeers

Jason B. Jones at has an excellent interview with Ann and Jeff VanderMeer, editors of Steampunk (2008), an anthology that was published recently by Tachyon.

The anthology includes Michael Chabon’s “The Martian Agent: a Planetary Romance,” but the interview has only a passing reference to it: “It was great to see the Chabon piece in there--to build that bridge out there to more mainstream literary uses of steampunk such as Pynchon’s, which might not be excerptable.”

As the interview mentions, Ann and Jeff VanderMeer will be appearing at Steam Powered: the California Steampunk Convention 2008, to be held October 31st through November 2nd, 2008, in Sunnyvale.
