Jeffrey Cook
What is Steampunk?
With 4 events in the Pacific Northwest, and all of its costumes, books, crafters, music, and so many other aspects, it's safe to say that steampunk has caught on in the region. But what is it? In this presentation author Jeffrey Cook will discuss the history of the genre, its roots in 1960's literature and movies, its predecessors and inspirations, and where some of the modern explosion came from. If you're lucky, he might even read a passage or two from his best-selling Dawn of Steam series.
