There’s nothing more steampunk than the plants that grow through cracks in concrete. Nothing can contain us and none can tame us. We make. We grow. We listen. HUMANWINE’s Mother has new songs for us.

The Steampunk Cookbook:

A Culinary Adventure by Jeff Mach and the Steampunk World’s Fair

Introduction

Where would Steampunks be without the glories of our cuisine? Well, for one thing, we would be hungry, and complaining bitterly about the lack of tea. But on a somewhat more serious note, one of the things we first noticed when we world’s largest Steampunk festival is this:  Steampunk is not simply an adventure for the mind, or the imagination alone.  It is an adventure in music, in dance, in activity and action, in fellowship, in adding delights for each and every one of the individual senses. It is, in short, precisely that thing most poised to delight the heart of any chef, amateur or professional. It is a very literal feast for both spirit and body.

Within the pages of this tome, you will find recipes new, old, traditional and groundbreaking, original and modified. Their shared point of commonality is that they emerge from that limitless wellspring of imagination which is Steampunk, and all of the fantastic worlds near and around it!

Also, all of these things taste pretty fabulous. Let’s not forget that part. I warn you that the sheer delight we took in capturing and preparing these ideas….may very possibly have spilled over into moments of joy, in musicality, exuberance, eccentricity, and silliness of the highest order. After all, we are Steampunks. It is our goal to make the world a more ridiculous, a more sublime, and more delicious place.

What Sharp Teeth: An Unconventional Fairy Tale

But somehow I never like Grandma’s house
As much as I love the dark wood…

Join us for an adventure in the dark and Freudian woods! “What Sharp Teeth” is a tale as twisted as the path to Grandmother’s house – and the Big Bad Wolf bit off more than he could chew when he encountered the bigger, badder Crocodile! The reptile’s rendezvous with Red Riding Hood unravels into a darkly humorous rock opera which both celebrates and sunders the magic of fairytales. It also has elements of Steampunk, Geek culture, and a pinch of Gothic darkness, and the unusual worlds we love at Jeff Mach Events.

While “What Sharp Teeth” has been performed by Jeff Mach as a one-man show, this is the first fully-staged version.The show is brought to you by many of the creative team behind 2016’s SPWF production of Absinthe Heroes. It’s chock full of surprises, plot twists, Easter eggs, and – just as things are starting to get seriously silly – it arcs into exhilarating drama and storytelling.

Professor Wetware’s Electric Medicine Show

We present a collection of lovingly preserved and restored classical electrotheraputic devices for your edification and experience. While the violet ray device, Electreat Mechanical Heart, Davis & Kidder Patent Magneto-Electric Machine, Auto-Kure Medical Battery, and Bunnel Faradic equipment are pretty well guaranteed not to cure your catarrh, phthisis, dropsy, hysteria, or neurasthenia; you are guaranteed to find interacting with them to be…stimulating. Those of you with Borg implants, implanted biomedical devices, or Dalek Servitor enhancements should be aware that these devices produce electrical stimulations and Tesla discharges refined to 19th century standards, and limit direct contact accordingly if required by your implants.
