Full description for Steampunk
Steampunk is Victorian elegance and modern technology: steam-driven robots, souped-up stagecoaches, and space-faring dirigibles fueled by gaslight romance, mad scientists, and oh-so-trim waistcoats. It's "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen," "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea," "The Wizard of Oz," and "The Golden Compass." Replete with whimsical mechanical wonders and bold adventurers, this riveting anthology lovingly collects classic steampunk stories, pop culture-fueled discussions of steampunk, and essential recommended reading lists for the discerning steampunk fan. From the editors of "The Thackery T. Lambshead Pocket Guide to Eccentric and Discredited Diseases" and "The New Weird," this is steampunk. Hang on tight.
