Gaslamp

GASLAMP (also known as gaslight fantasy or gaslight romance) is a subgenre of both fantasy and historical fiction. It tends to have a clearly recognisable grounding in either a Regency, Victorian, or Edwardian setting. Gaslamp is further differentiated from other forms of fantasy by the supernatural elements, themes, and subjects it features.
Many of its tropes, themes, and stock characters derive from Gothic literature. For example, the innocent heroine thrust into a creepy setting and beset by peril, who must find the internal strength to succeed in the end.
Gaslamp should NOT be confused with steampunk which is science based, although some novels blend both genres.
