Gatehouse Gazette 18

Gatehouse Gazette is a bi-monthly Steam and Dieselpunk publication that illuminates a different facet of the subcultures with each issue. Their most recent issue, number 18, just recently hit virtual shelves and will be of particular interest to my readers who are interested in exploring Steampunk as a lifestyle.

This edition has all sorts of goodies for those of you interested in exploring Steampunk as a mindset and way of life.  The entire publication is worth your attention, but Jacqueline Christi’s article entitled “Explorations into Steampunk Lifestyle” is a particularly interesting analysis of Steampunk as a subculture. Do be sure not to miss it.

Gatehouse Gazette 17 is Here

The Gatehouse Gazette has just released its seventeenth edition of its bimonthly publication. Issue 17 features a focus on the Jazz Age:

Although this issue is firmly entrenched in the the times that birthed Dieselpunk, there’s still some articles here that will interest Steampunks, particularly The Steampunk Wardrobe by H. Heyvaert. This issue promises to be of interest to retrofuturists across all eras, however.

This Gatehouse Gazette is for the good times! The age of Jazz and flappers; aeroplanes and deco skyscrapers, all reaching for the skies. The world was roaring in the 1920s and at the Gazette, we remember the era with a splendid collection of articles this issue.

And while not Steampunk in its composition, I was particularly impressed by the article The Philosophy of Dieselpunk by L. Amyett. Articles like these play a huge role in defining Dieselpunk as its own genre that stands separate from Steampunk. The insight within the article illuminates Dieselpunk in such a way that will offer an excellent introduction to its inspirations, historical roots, and mindset. Well done!

You can download the 17th issue of the Gatehouse Gazette for free. The Gatehouse Gazette publishes on a bimonthly basis, so be sure to check back regularly to learn more about their developments for each new issue.

Gatehouse Gazette 16 is Out

Our friends at Gatehouse Gazette have released issue 16 of their bimonthly publication. Although the Gatehouse Gazette usually has a more Dieselpunk focus, January’s issue is themed on the Weird West, which makes for perfect reading for those reflecting on Steamcon II or preparing for Wild West Con later this year.

Here’s the contents of this month’s publication:

  • Bennett, A., “The Falcon,” 20-23
  • Davia, L., “Review Magico Vento,” 17
  • Fagan, R., “Review: Nickel Children,” 10
  • Fagan, R., “Steampunk at Dickens on the Strand,” 6
  • Heyvaert, H., “Review: Dr Who Christmas Special,” 11
  • Heyvaert, H., “Review: Wild Wild West,” 17
  • Heyvaert, H., “Review: Sherlock,” 11
  • Heyvaert, H., “The Steampunk Wardrobe,” 14
  • McCleary, C., “Wilde’s West,” 18-20
  • Moffett, C., “Louis Brennan’s Monorail Car,” 15
  • Ottens, N., “Anarchocapitalism in the Old West,” 5
  • Ottens, N., “A History of the American Bison,” 12
  • Ottens, N., “Preview: BioShock Infinite,” 9
  • Worden, P.J., “The Great Airship Scare,” 7

In addition to the expected fiction collection, I’m particularly excited about the article on Anarchocapitalism in the Old West by N. Ottens. It promises to be an unique read on some of the lesser known historical elements of the American frontier.
