What is Steampunk? According to the New Oxford American Dictionary the sub-genre Steampunk is:
a genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery rather than advanced technology.
An example of a steampunk book is Leviathan by Scott Westerfield. The challenge runs from October 2010 to October 2011 and there are no obligations other than to have fun discovering a genre and let other participants know about what you find.
These are the books I'd like to read:
- Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
- Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld
My sirter-in-law and I are writing letters to each other as characters in a steampunk world, and it is a really fun genre. I would recommend the Airborn series by Kenneth Oppel, they are really good.ReplyDelete

I was just explaining steampunk to someone the other day. Good luck with the challenge.ReplyDelete
