Steampunkers, the inevitable has happened. The fabulous sub genre (think the new version of Sherlock Holmes with Robert Downy Jr.) of sci-fi, the weird baby brother, is now mainstream. Woe unto us.
On this past Monday's Castle:
I admit it, I watched the episode and geeked out a bit, and went rummaging for some brass pistons and some spare cogs and wheels.... Which made me think about some excellent YA and adult steampunk to feed the beast or get to you started: Leviathan, by Scott Westerfeld - Mortal Engines, by Philip Reeve - Boneshaker, by Cheri Priest - Extraordinary Engines: The Definitive Steampunk Anthology, edited by Nick Gevers.
