message 1: by Tim (new)

Tim Harlan Just wondering what everyone thought about steampunk. Do you like it or not.


message 2: by Dustin (new)

Dustin Great idea, Tim.:)

I can't say I've ever read any of the Steampunk genre, but I am very intrigued!


Here's a link, which I found helpful:

Rick Shepard Nowthat you mention it, I don't think I've ever read any steampunk either! Anyone have any suggestions?


message 4: by Dustin (new)

Dustin I'm pretty sure that William Gibson is a big name in the genre..


message 5: by Tim (new)

Tim Harlan Gibson is cyberpunk. Steam punk is usually set in the 1800 or early 1900. Jules Vern would be called steampunk.

Jordan (dabink) | 20 comments Never really read any, but am very intrigued by it. I've heard some people describe S.M. Stirling's novel "The Peshawar Lancers" as steampunk, but I'm not sure it quite fits. Either way, that was a great book that I would highly recommend! :-D

Oh, really? I did not know that about Vern. I guess I have read some steampunk, then.:)

I just checked it out, and The Peshawar Lancers definitely counts as steampunk! Thank you, Jordan!

Janie Johnson Well Incarceron and Sapphique are Steampunk and I totally loved those 2. So I think that I can probably handle it for the most part.

Same here. I love Jules Verne, and now that you mention it, you can kind of see that with Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.

Thanks for the link Dustin. I've heard of steampunk but wasn't sure what it was. I've never read any thing in this genre.

This is a good steampunk series, my son got me this as a gift a few years ago. Its the first in the series and its really good. Julia it might be a good one to try, I think it was my first book in this genre:)
