Free SFR Ebook, SPACE: 1999 Giveaway, & Steampunk Romance Event

February is Steampunk "Romance and Erotica" month at Steampunk Scholar. If you'll recall, he featured a review of Nathalie Gray's FULL STEAM AHEAD and Gail Carriger's SOULLESS. Here's a snippet of the planned features:

My plans are always bigger than I can make happen, and while I wanted to look at the entire Steampunk Trilogy this month, I'll likely be focusing solely on "Walt and Emily." I'll take a look at Gail Carriger's Soulless again, revisiting it beyond review to ruminate on the elements of Austenian comedy she brings to the first two books in the Parasol Protectorate series. I'm going to review some erotica as well, including Ora Le Brocq's Steampunk Erotica and a few selections from Circlet press: Peter Tupper's The Innocent's Progress and Lionel Bramble's 1901: A Steam Odyssey. I'd like to get the chance to talk corsets, burlesque, and Baz Luhrman's Moulin Rouge! We may even bring up that steampunk chestnut, Katie MacAlister's Steamed as well.
