I'm honored!

Re: I just about died...

Those are wonderful!
Now you sound like me with regards to fiction.
That's been my problem. I have a to read pile that is a mile high. I keep hoping I'll get it all read soon, but it just keeps growing.
I can but sigh.
Steampunk tends to be higher class, but I'm still surprised Mayhew's _London Labor and the London Poor_ didn't get mentioned.

Volumes 3 and 4 are also on the Tufts site.

Great List!

Thanks for this! I can't wait to track these down. I wish I could have heard the panel too :(
