Today I’m working on finishing up the slide presentation part of my airship talk that I’ll be giving on Sunday.
I will be presenting Airships in Literature: Floating into the Future on Sunday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. It’s not going to be an academic discussion, and the slideshow isn’t going to be a bunch of bullet points that you’ll have to memorize. I hope to introduce some of you to the kinds of literature out there that features airships.
My focus for the talk is on writers of the Victorian era and the early 20th century, so I won’t be discussing airships in modern Steampunk literature. There’s plenty of material there for another talk (or several), so maybe that could be a topic for next year’s Steampunk World’s Fair.
