What is ‘Steampunk’ Novel? What even IS Steampunk?

by Julie

STEAMPUNK simply embodies a time and a place. The time… the late 19th century. The place… a steam powered world, where air travel by fantastical dirigibles is as common as traveling by train or boat. A place where national interests are vastly different than our own version of history.

In four short words, STEAMPUNK novel is Victorian Uchronic science fiction.

Here “Victorian” means a time period and an aesthetic: the industrialized 19th century. This period has developed many key aspects of the modern world (mechanized manufacturing, extensive urbanization, telecommunications, office life and mass-transit) and steampunk uses this existing technology and structure to imagine a more advanced 19th century, often complete with Victorian-inspired wonders like mechanical computers or steam-powered aircraft — Steampunk loves dirigibles.
