Beyond Victoriana offers an exclusive sneak peek into the steampunk-anthology ‘Vaporpunk,’ featuring stories from Brazil and Portugal, which of course are all in Portuguese. But the sneak-peek teasers are in English, together with their Portuguese originals. If you need more secondary information—Fabio Fernandes has written a review of ‘Vaporpunk’ (in English). Obviously there is not only Latin-American cyberpunk (Toledano Redondo 2005), but steampunk, too.
    The blog Beyond Victoriana, where the excerpts have been published, in itself is interesting for literature-buffs and anthropologists alike, and perfect for anthropologists interested in literature:

Beyond Victoriana is a blog about multicultural steampunk and retro-futurism–that is, steampunk outside of a Western-dominant, Eurocentric framework. All of the steampunkery here focuses on non-Western cultures, underrepresented minorities in Western histories (Asian / Pacific Islander, Middle Eastern, First Nation, Hispanic, black / African), and the cultural intersection between the West and the non-West.
