Sarah Palin, steampunk?

US comic-book publisher Antarctic Press have announced a new title – Steampunk Palin, where US Republican pin-up girl Sarah Palin stars as the – presumably ironic – champion of clean geothermally generated steampower, and has to take on corporate villains from the big oil mafia in her steampunk power armour.

Can American politics and the steampunk genre co-exist happily?

Sarah Palin the steampunk


I am an author of various fantasy, science fiction, crime and other genre books from Gollancz, Hachette and HarperCollins. Some day I hope to grow up and be an astronaut. Exploring Mars would be nice.

    I think the opinion on this one will swing depending on whether the reader is a Republican or Democrat…

    I’m not a Democrat or Republican, but any airtime/face time that Palin gets really frightens the hell out of me. I know it won’t happen, but I wish she’d just go away.
