   Posted by: ermyntrude

Tally Ho! Members of the expeditionary committee of the ALTV have again landed in fair Oamaru, as previously expounded upon with great delight last December. But we have returned, for none other than the Steampunk Fashion Parade and Gala Ball and of course to celebrate the birth of our most beloved Queen, as all subjects [...]

It was with no small measure of pride that, as ALTV secretary, I was recently able to grant a licence to the National Library of Australia permitting the addition of this very weblog to its PANDORA archive. “PANDORA is a digital archive dedicated to the preservation of and long term access to Australian online electronic [...]

Steampunk Capital of the World holds literary festival

   Posted by: cholmondeley

The 2009 programme for the Melbourne Writers Festival (which is apparently unpunctuated, no doubt in deference to modernity) includes a series of items at the stylish Toff in Town, notably “McSweeny’s (Futuristic) Antipodean Adventure” (Saturday, August 29 — Mme. M and self will be transiting the podes, alas — 8pm–11pm; $25), which features our own [...]

Dispatches from the Engines

   Posted by: cholmondeley

As the League’s Secretary, I am charged with getting the word about. To that end I’ve made use of the ALTV’s extensive (if occasionally antiquated) internet infrastructure to establish a distribution mechanism for electronic mail.

Freeconomy is apparently a kind of distributed gift economy with an international membership of about 10,000. Its faux silent movie introduction is certainly amusing.
Last call, last call! There’s only 24 hours left to book for the illustrious Queen’s Birthday Eve Dinner Voyage!
