The Punkettes (Steampunk, Clockpunk and Dieselpunk, Oh my!): Film Review: Iron Sky I re-watched this one to review it for you guys because this movie does what I thought was a really interesting thing. It's definitely got some heavy dieselpunk elements in the Space Nazi side of things, in a very over-the-top way. It's meant to be ridiculous though, and the movie doesn't take itself too seriously at all. The thing I find interesting though is the way they handled the Nazis. It's always risky to use Nazis in a comedy, because the Holocaust is so very much a sacred cow, and you don't want to make jokes about that. These Nazis left the earth before the holocaust, though.
Tommy Thunder and The Tales of the Aether Age. Tier Zero by Henry Brown My rating: 4 of 5 stars *Pulp Warning* All of my reading and reviewing is skewed towards epulp. All reviews are therefore skewed to that end. Reader beware :) *Pulp Warning* Overall: 4 stars (Recommended) - but drop a star if you're a pulp purist or think the politics may annoy you. Tier Zero, though not the pulpiest read you're likely to find, is a good read in the vein of an old-school men's adventure paperback.

Posted By Traveler on 7. September 2012 The time between the World Wars saw some amazing developments in fighter technology, only surpassed by what came with the beginning of the jet age (which is worth another article altogether). One of the most significant developments was the move from bi- to monoplanes. The move was not a quick or fast one and different nations did it at different times. Towards the middle and late 1930′s, there were a number of advanced biplane designs in the arsenal of various major air forces around the world.

I really don't know how I feel about diesel punk. I suppose all on it's own I like it. It's the future that steampunk becomes, followed by raygun gothic. I love the Rocketeer, and Tale Spin. I love heavier-than-air flying machines as much or more than aerostats. Diesel Punk. Meh.
Dieselpunk Underground Like the glaze-inducing opening of the ubiquitous “What I Did Over Spring Break” essay, M.T. Anderson opens his dystopian novel, , with his undiscerning teen protagonist, saying “We went to the moon to have fun, but the moon turned out to completely suck”(3). The novel’s generalities and bleakness are woven with references to Nazis, fatal civil disobedience, and societal brainwashing in future America. In Anderson’s novel, high-schoolers vacation on the moon via flying cars, advertisements for the hippest cyberpunk slamdance club are piped directly into the brain, and everyone monitors each other’s movements even when seemingly alone: all done by the feed. The feed advances fascist rule in a new world order aimed at American youth; fabricated not by barbed-wired fences and cyanide showers, the feed instead is a consumer-driven concentration camp, enslaving humanity with wires and broadband in lieu of ball and chain.
No? It's a good job you've got months to prepare, then, because the first one takes place on November 12 2012. The date was chosen because while there's some flexibility in what dieselpunk is, the most widely-accepted date for the start of the Diesel Era is the end of the First World War, November 11 1918. Are you ready for International Dieselpunk Day?

Since I did my first solo last week, I’ve built up about 5 hours of solo flight now. Previous to that, my instructor mentioned several times when she took me up in more questionable weather, that I’ll need to start thinking about what my personal limits will be – what I’m confident I can handle with regards to winds and crosswinds, and what I might not be able to land the plane safely in. Post-solo, having flown a bunch on my own, I’ve noticed it really does change the way I think about that. The safety net is gone, but not only that. Dieselpunk | Lindsay Kitson – Dieselpunk Author

"QUANTUM SHOT" #509Link, by A. Abrams Who would've thought that rusty pipes can spawn a cultural movement? Dieselpunk: Love Affair with a Machine
The Saunders-Roe (Saro) A.19 Cloud amphibious flying-boat was produced in two forms: as a civil eight-seater and as a military trainer. In the latter role the RAF received 16 from 1933. The large cabin provided accommodation for eight pupils; six pupils and wireless and electrical equipment, navigation instruments and signalling apparatus; or four.pupils and the above equipment for navigational training. Alternatively, the Cloud could be used for flying training, to simulate the conditions to be met with a larger service type of flying-boat. Power was provided by two 253kW Armstrong Siddeley Double Mongoose engines. Dieselpunk

In our Space 1889 campaign, Venus has always had a tertiary role after Mars and Earth. So far we have only put one story arc there, mainly to test whether our players would enjoy it. The arc comprised a convoluted mix of a missing Swedish prince, a major nectar rush (i.e. a Venerian “gold rush” equivalent), Dutch trade politics, and some Czech nationalists’ anti-Habsburg schemes. After the finale, however, the players concluded that they rather stick to Mars, because Venus proved too limited in scope. Our campaign had reached 1894 when the player characters landed on Venus, so we, the two gamemasters, made a timeline with various notable post-1889 developments, some of which are non-canon.
