What is Steampunk?

Steampunk combines nostalgia for Victorian aesthetics with creative technology to create a genre of science fiction literature that has influenced movies, television, fashion, and design.

Steampunkers are Makers, embracing a do-it-yourself philosophy and crafting items & clothing from found gears, clockworks, metals, etc. Stories are often speculative fiction or alternate histories which use steam and clockwork technology to emulate modern electronics; using the palette of brass and wood instead of chrome and plastic. Other touchwords include retro-futurism, neo-Victorian, and techno-fantasy. Related genres are weird west, cyberpunk and gaslamp fantasy/romance, among others.

The titles in this list come from the JMRL collection and inhabit many of these sub-genres and more, all touching on various aspects of the steampunk aesthetic. Check them out and visit a world where the future meets the past! --Mdickens 14:14, 14 May 2011 (EDT)
