Steampunk Reading Challenge 2012
Welcome to the world of STEAMPUNK, a fascinating subgenre of the fantasy world. Meet strong Victorian men and women and explore fantastic airships, crafts and other incredible inventions.
Are you confused about Steampunk? Do you want to know – what exactly is Steampunk? Click here to read all about it.
There are many attributes of this science fiction sub-genre that I adore, such as steam or clockwork powered tech, the magic of electricity, gears and gadgets that can do fantastical things, and (let’s not forget) dirigibles. The Steampunk genre generally contains stories written in an alternate history/Victorian era where steam powered gadgets and machines rule the day. You have Zephyrs and blimps, fashionable Victorian clothing for the lovely ladies and handsome gentlemen, and clever clockwork designs.
