SIGN UP on this post for: Steampunk Giveaway Hop
Featuring Books and Goodies with a steampunk theme - please, no gift cards as this is to promote this specific theme.
The hope is to see actual images of steampunk books and/or items to help spread the awareness of this genre.
What is STEAMPUNK?
Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery, especially in a setting inspired by industrialized Western civilization during the 19th century. Steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century's British Victorian era or American "Wild West", in a post-apocalyptic future during which steam power has regained mainstream use, or in a fantasy world that similarly employs steam power. Steampunk perhaps most recognizably features anachronistic technologies or retro-futuristic inventions as people in the 19th century might have envisioned them, and is likewise rooted in the era's perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, and art. -per wikipedia
