Interviews With The Fantastic
InterGalactic Interview With Paul Di Filippo
    by Darrell Schweitzer

SCHWEITZER: Let's start in the middle . . . I wonder if you have any comments on why we're having a second big wave of Steampunk just now. It's so 20th century, something that happened in the late '80s, but now it's happening again.

Di FILIPPO: It's funny, Darrell, that you would bring that up, because that was the topic of a panel, last night, here at Boskone. I think it's an extra-literary phenomenon. There's that aspect of it, where it's become a cultural lifestyle thing that has summoned a whole flock of people. I think it's almost the reverse order. They enter the lifestyle and then start looking for the fiction that originally sparked that lifestyle. So I think that a lot of it is that people feel that there is an audience out there of people who are attracted to the superficial trappings, the costumes and gadgets of Steampunk. Maybe writers feel that they can wean those people off that, or transfer their affections from all those tchotchkes to the literary aspect of it.
