Special Guest : K.W. Jeter!

As part of the celebration of all things “Steampunk”, A Splendid Day Out has been successful in persuading the originator of the term “Steampunk” to attend and speak at the Arts of Steam segment of June 2018’s festival. KW Jeter is a science and speculative fiction author who, whilst looking to give a name to the Victorian based speculative science fiction work he was undertaking, in conversation with his friends came up with the word “Steam-punk”. In doing this, he not only gave what he was writing a contextual basis, he also laid the foundation for a creative and irreverent lifestyle we know today. 2017 was the 30th birthday of Steampunk so we have aimed to celebrate this by highlighting the literary heart of our lifestyle. As part of this, KW Jeter was very kind and prompt in offering his services to the event and in doing so also professed a local connection as he visited Morecambe with his late wife.
An author of over 30 books, he has written sequels to the famous “Blade Runner” written by Hampton Fancher and David Peoples, and even penned similar in the “Star Wars” and Star Trek franchises.
We are delighted To have this world-renowned author speak at A Splendid Day Out.
