With only a week having passed since the Manchester Gothic Festival there have been a few other tweets and blogs written about the Steampunk afternoon. I thought I'd share those I have found:

Also, it was Halloween a few days ago. Online friend and blogger Carla Valentine, curator of Barts Pathology Museum in London, was on the Alan Titchmarsh Show on ITV (available to watch until the end of November) talking about the real-life medical origins of some of the monster legends. Carla has written this up into a very interesting blog, so I thought I'd share that with you. Did you know that Catholic doctrine classed lepers as undead...? I didn't. Read up for loads more interesting facts.
