We’re incredibly excited here at Robot HQ because 2017 marks 30 Years of Steampunk!
Back in April 1987, the amazing K W Jeter was the first person the coin the phrase ‘Steampunk’ and this weekend he will be the Guest of Honour at the International Steampunk Symposium in Cincinnati, Ohio (28-30 May).
Not only will he be Guest of Honour, he’ll be taking part in the K W Jeter Feature Hour on Sunday; talking about his life and work, including the amazing George Dower Trilogy; Infernal Devices, Fiendish Schemes and Grim Expectations (coming from Angry Robot in June 2017).
The Symposium is a mission for the promotion and preservation of all things Steampunk and it plays a vital part in its dedication to the Steampunk Community. Plus it’s also a jolly good time where you are likely to find several friends whom you have yet to meet!
Here are all the details you might need:
Location: Crowne Plaza Blue Ash – 5901 Pfeiffer Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45242
Tickets are available now and start at $15 for Saturday or Sunday Daytime. Weekend and Evening tickets are also available.
