Steampunk

Book Display Marketing (5)Discovering new genres in books is equally as much fun as discovering new genres in music.  Many people enjoy reading science fiction, but how many know that their are many other mini-genres within science fiction. One of these mini-genres within the “science fiction” realm is steampunk.

So what is steampunk?  Steampunk is a genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery rather than advanced technology. A lot of steampunk takes place in 19th century (British Victorian era or American “Wild West”).  It also can follow the realms of other genres such as historic fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, paranormal romance and horror.  It is also written for the children, adults and young adults.
