If you are yearning for some alternate history pomp and glory next weekend, and you're in the San Francisco Bay Area, you'll want to fetch yourself some tickets to the Nova Albion Steampunk Exhibition.
Not only will you find the latest anachronistic styles and literary endeavors, but you'll also be treated to a unique motion picture delight. There's a panel with the filmmakers behind upcoming steampunk cyborg movie, The Marionette Unit, which if the trailer is any indication, should be chock full of scary goodness.
Today is the last day to buy tickets online to the Exhibition, so get yours fast! If you can't make it, have no worries. io9's intrepid explorers will be there for you, photographing and observing in order to file a full report later, via blogoscope.
