Steampunk: 20 Core Titles

Steampunk: 20 Core Titles | Steampunk | Scoop.it

"Steampunk is everywhere, from movies like Sherlock Holmes and Howl’s Moving Castle to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and an art exhibition at the Museum of the History of Science in Oxford, England. A subgenre of science fiction, it typically (but not always) employs a Victorian setting where steam power and advanced technologies like computers coexist and often features themes, such as secret societies, found in mystery novels."

Twenty Must Read Steampunk Books – An Introduction to the Genre | The Ranting Dragon

Twenty Must Read Steampunk Books – An Introduction to the Genre | The Ranting Dragon | Steampunk | Scoop.it

"Steampunk is a hard subgenre to evaluate since the decision to classify a novel as steampunk often relates to aesthetics and may have little to do with the overall plot or feel of the novel. Thus, most steampunk novels fit into other genres as well, such as steampunk-romance, steampunk-adventure, steampunk-mystery, dark-steampunk and so on.

Therefore, when choosing books for this list, I have endeavored to explore all sides of steampunk by presenting a selection of books with varying styles, vastly different plots and different themes. I’ve also tried to achieve a balance between the old and the new, with approximately half the books on the list being classics of the genre and the other half being more contemporary works."
