Nancy asked:

I have this book ordered, and anything with Jim Butcher's name as the author has me. Having said that, I'm 79 years old, What is "Steampunk"?

Kevin Steampunk= fiction involving old/outdated technology used to do things only thought possible with more advanced technology...not the best definition but kind of hard to put into words. Examples of Steampunk tech...steam powered time machine...clockwork robots with artificial intelligence...blimps that travel through outer space...sailboats that fly...etc...
George First answer's pretty good. See also Wikipedia is generally very good on genres.
