Steampunk

Steampunk





What is steampunk?  According to The Steampunk Bible (2011), it can be explained most easily by this equation:


Steampunk = Mad Scientist Inventor [invention (steam x airship or metal man/ baroque stylings) x (pseudo) Victorian (or Edwardian) settings] + progressive or reactionary politics x adventure plot. (p. 9)


So, basically, a mixture of science-fiction and fantasy, often set in the Victorian era with both futuristic and retro elements.
