The Gatehouse Gazette # 22 out now!

Although we suspended regular publication of the Gatehouse Gazette last year, we didn’t want 2012 to go by without at least one installment of the dieselpunk and steampunk magazine. So I proudly present our thickest issue to date: a 1940s themed special edition of the Gatehouse Gazette.

The magazine has a survey of Spanish steampunk by Jose Francisco Alfaya of Decimononic; a lengthy review of Peter Tsouras’ collection of alternate history stories Third Reich Victorious by Larry Amyett of the Dieselpunk blog; a collection of forgotten technologies by Lorenzo Davia; an essay by Marcus Rauchfuß of The Traveler’s Steampunk Blog about Nazi aesthetics in the dieselpunk genre; a feature by Tome Wilson of about dieselpunk milestones; and, as always, a Steampunk Wardrobe column by Hilde Heyvaert of House of Secrets Incorporated about noir fashion styles.
