Finally, it's happening. I found a publisher to take on the project of a Southeast Asian steampunk anthology. Bill Campbell of Rosarium Publishing, which also recently published Mothership: Tales of Afrofuturism and Beyond in which my short story "Between Islands" is reprinted, very kindly extended an offer to me and Joyce Chng to co-edit an anthology which we are calling THE SEA IS OURS: TALES OF STEAMPUNK SOUTHEAST ASIA!
We currently have a cohort of really excellent SEAsian writers on the SFF scene, and Joyce and I are very interested in encouraging more talent across the region. We're looking for a wide range in terms of stories, characters, histories and geographies.
Here is the official announcement with a fuller FAQ section, but for general guidelines hit the read through!
