What is Steampunk?
Different people define "steampunk" in different ways, but you can think of it as special brand of science fiction with a Victorian twist. It is typically set in 19th century England, but with steam powered technology that never really existed at the time. Mechanical dirigibles, clockwork automatons, and strange gadgets abound in this strange setting where the past meets the future.
