Supanova Steampunk Documentary!

Update, update! The panel on steampunk by Michael Pryor and me is set for 4.00 on Sunday in the Supanova Seminar Room – filming starts then and continues on afterwards.

It’s a week and a half to the Sydney Supanova – the special big bash, Supanova’s tenth anniversary celebration. Not only stars of film and TV (more than I can list – check ’em out at but also yours truly, Richard Harland! (the overseas author is Christopher Paolini, of “Eragon” fame)
For me, the most exciting bit will be the filming of a steampunk documentary. Michael Pryor and I are doing a panel on all-you-ever-wanted-to-know-about-Steampunk, and filming will take place during and after the panel. Come in steampunk togs if you have any – or come anyway.

Here’s the official invite, open to anyone attending Supanova on the day –

Michael Pryor and Richard Harland

    Hi Richard,

    I had a steampunk 21st and still have my costume, so I guess you’ll see me at this event. Is the talk on the Saturday?

    ps: I am studying at UOW ๐Ÿ™‚ Some of my friends in english lit. had you teach them! It’s a small world.

      Hi! Small world indeed! the further away from uni I get, the more I seem to be remembered!
      All good! Yes, you have to give your Steampunk costume another outing. See you there, or call round at the Dymocks stand – I’ll have time for a real chat then!

      • InkAshlings Says:

        I can only come to supanova on the Saturday at this stage, but I’ll dress up steampunk regardless.
        I’ll come by the stand for sure and chat- I’m an aspiring fantasy writer myself ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Paul! Great to meet you too, and I hope the poster makes for a fine cave decoration! Winning the A Bertram Chandler was totally out of the blue and a huge honour!
