The 8th Annual London International Festival of Science Fiction and Fantastic Film ... AKA SCI-FI-LONDON

Saturday 2nd May 2009 – 12:30am - ‘Tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1899 - The Rise Of Steampunk Subculture.’
Steampunk has been bubbling under for years, but now steampunk theatre and cabaret scenes are slowly establishing themselves, traditional 'goths' are replacing their eyeliner for googles, cogs and gentlemen's jackets and Solaris has just published an anthology of steampunk writing. So why has it taken so long for Steampunk to break through? Why now? And where do we think it is going?

Panellists: Stephen Hunt, Chris Wooding, Bryan Talbot, Paul Duffield.
