I'm honored!

Re: I just about died...

Those are wonderful!
Thanks so much for this treasure of ressources, I wish I had the time to just read what I want right now. :) Will definitely save this for later! (when I'm 75 *lol*)

What an adorable video, be still my heart. XD
Now you sound like me with regards to fiction.
Ahaha... I've given up on being able to read even 20% of what I'd actually like to read. It's especially bad as some of these texts have been written by friends and it hurts so much not being able to give them constructive feedback.

On a different note, I just saw the titles of the German editions. Holy crap, that's the worst I've heard about ever since "exploding snap" became "Snape explodes". I hope the rest of the translation doesn't follow that trend. I'm so sorry that they do this to your wonderful story!
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 :(
Random observation from a reader: Though I could never see Lord Maccon singing such a song, it strikes me that I'm Alive by Imelda May is an entirely appropriate song for their situation.
He he.
