Pendragon Variety – Xtra 14 – The Steampunk Kerfuffle – Tee Morris and Pip Ballantine Interview

If you’ve been paying attention to Steampunk news lately, the whole snafu over a Goodreads/Listopia list getting deleted (and the inelegant blundering that followed) most likely hasn’t escaped your notice.

If you haven’t, boy are you in for an eyebrow-raiser.

In this special Pendragon Xtra, Steampunk authors Tee Morris and Philippa (Pip) Ballentine share what, for them, pushed it over the line from playground pigtail-pulling to a bold career choice, and you can believe…they’re steaming out the ears.

 

2-25-2012 – Edit - From an anonymous source: “Evelyn isn’t an illustrator, and does not draw. She didn’t draw the steampunk cats… she “collaged” (i.e. Photoshopped…) turn-of-the-century illustrations by Louis Wain.”

    Take the drop-ins away from Tee, and he goes crazy on the bell. ;P lol. Lots of dinging at the beginning there.

    I’d been curious about the Steampunk thing and Goodreads. So thanks for sharing it with me. I have to admit I’m a bit of a dunce when it comes to the lists on Goodreads…I can’t find any! Unless I see someone in the stream had voted on one. I wish I could find these things. I have a hard time finding things like that on Goodreads, and forums as well. I feel so tech-illiterate.

    Thanks for the great post, and sorry to learn who Evelyn is. I too, didn’t really know who she was. But she sounds like she’s elevated her career on the people who did all the hard work.

    You two are insanely busy! And glad it’s working out for you both with all the crazy going on. Take care!!
