Advert: Top 10 Reasons to Read Steampunk

Does the last advert on the page above catch your attention???

guest post at The Pen & Muse Book Reviews

1) Steampunk is the great multitasker. While the genre is generally set during Earth’s Victorian era, authors have placed steampunk elements in a variety of settings, including alternate fantasy worlds, the American Old West, space, and Africa. In fact, because of its versatility, you may have already read some steampunk and didn’t even know it. Way to go!

2) Steampunk has airships, which frankly are way cooler than space ships.

3) Mystery is a popular partner of steampunk. Investigators in steampunk stories discover all kinds of strange and unusual contraptions in their quest to solve the crime. The real mystery then becomes, why don’t I get to have all of that loot, for real, in my personal collection?

  1. 9) If you read a steampunk story, I’ll like you on Facebook. And if you’re not on Facebook, no worries—I’ll still like you.

    LOL XD

  2. I agree with #2 completely, but LOVE #5: With steampunk, you can also get your steam on. Quite a few authors write steampunk romance and/or erotic steampunk romance. It’s like a two-for-one special. With fireworks, if you know what I mean, wink wink, nudge nudge.

    hahahah too funny

  3. I like reasons #5-7!

  4. Guess I was into steampunk years ago and didn't know it - ala Jules Verne & H.G. Wells lol

  5. I am tempted to try the Steampunk genre even more now. Love reason #8 :)

  6. Thanks so very much for the link love!
