Most anyone who reads fiction these days has heard of or read stories with a Steampunk theme. This genre exploded onto the scene several years ago in books and film. 

The Sherlock Holmes movies for instance have strong steampunk elements. But there may be some who don’t know or understand this type of work, or exactly what is meant by "Steampunk". 

The following is a brief explanation of this fascinating genre.

Steampunk is a style of writing inspired by science fiction. It combines historical elements and settings with anachronistic attributes. And typically features steam-powered machinery—cogs, wheels, gears— rather than advanced technology. 

The creative ideas can be endless and exciting to explore inside this type of genre. To capture the essence of this unique theme think H.G. Wells and Jules Verne.

Steampunk fashions seen in media most always pay homage to the vintage Victorian era with a touch of mechanical flair mixed with a modern flavor. 

Trending in a future post is the premise/blurb for a new book titled THE PURVEYOR, my own journey into the world of Steampunk.

Keep your spyglass at the ready!
