SteamPunk Magazine is an online and print semi-annual magazine devoted to the steampunk subculture.[1] It is published under a Creative Commons license, and is free for download.[1] In March 2008, SteamPunk Magazine began offering free subscriptions to incarcerated Americans, as a "celebration" of 1% of the US population being eligible.[2]

SteamPunk Magazine was formerly published by anarchist zine publisher Strangers in a Tangled Wilderness in the United States and by Vagrants Among Ruins in the United Kingdom. The magazine is currently published by the worker-run Combustion Books in New York City and distributed by AK Press.[3]

Reception and recognition[edit]
