Getting Started with Steampunk
If you love science fiction and/or fantasy, and also the Victorian era
, then it’s a bit surprising that you haven’t already discovered the wonderful world of steampunk. But perhaps you’ve heard of it? Steampunk
—getting more popular every day—is a genre that, while established almost 30 years ago, has in the past several years grown almost exponentially in popularity. Movies like Robert Downey Jr.’s Sherlock Holmes
or Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
, or books like The Golden Compass
are good examples of this retro-techno mashed-up genre where Victorian technology meets space travel.
