This 1930s edition of Gatehouse Gazette has a lot of dirt and grit in it, from crickey, secret Nazi stuff to Russian dieselpunk, but it also features the elegance of the interwar period with Art Deco, radio and fashion.

The latest edition of the Gatehouse Gazette is released today!

Themed "Weird West", this first full color issue of the magazine is a very American one indeed. We have reviews of Wild Wild West, Nickel Children and Italian Western comic Magico Vento. Ramon Fagan, contributing for the first time, reports from Texas on steampunk at the Dickens on the Strand festival. Hilde Heyvaert is back with her Steampunk Wardrobe column as is novelist Carol McCleary with a feature about Oscar Wilde's adventures in the Old West.

Hello everyone

I'm happy to announce that the latest edition of the Gatehouse Gazette, our 15th, is available for your reading please via free online download here.

For those that don't know it: the Gatehouse Gazette is a wonderful online magazine about steampunk and dieselpunk that appears on the interwebs bimonthly.

This time we have a fashion article on steampunk lolita, established author Carol McCleary talks about Nellie Bly, we have pretty photos for you to look at, a piece on Halloween, a victorian paperdoll, an article about feminism and much much MUCH more!

So go ahead and grab a copy!

Do not be alarmed if you have missed an edition of this magazine, they are all available for free via this link.

Oh and guys, for our next edition we are still looking for photos of you in your finest steampunk or dieselpunk outfits!
Every edition our chief editor Nick Ottens choses one from all the photos send in and that photo will be published in the magazine.
So if you're interested: drop him a line with your photo in attachment on n.ottens@gmail.com
Please only send in photos that you are allowed to use, we don't want any copyright infringement!
Also, we are always looking for new contributors too, so if you have an idea for an article, drop Nick a line :)

And because just text isn't cool, have a photo by the talented Noura Khenfi who did photography for this issue :)
