Moonifest Destiny: The Rough & Ready Balloon Invasion of the Lunar Peninsula of Texas
Peter Gelma, (Minneapolis 1992 - First edition(?). 12mo. Red cloth gilt. Fine, no dustwrapper, probably as issued. Inscribed by the author: "1-21-93." An unrecorded first (?) edition, probably printed in very small numbers for the author, of a classic proto-steampunk novel, preceding by three years the novel's first appearance in the journal *Quanta* (the first digital science fiction journal). Steampunk novels are generally stories of alternative future versions of a world in which obsolete or Victorian technologies (such as steam power) continued to develop and maintain primacy in western culture. Precursors include H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, and films such as Fritz Lang's *Metropolis*. The first modern commercial novels include works by Michael Moorcock, K.W. Jeter, and James Blaylock. *OCLC* locates no copies. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
