I’ve written an article over on Squidoo about some things that have been bothering me. Just a few of the things that people will tell you about steampunk that I don’t think are necessarily true and might be doing more harm than good. Go and check it out.
So according to the Oxford Dictionary of English, steampunk is “a genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery rather than advance technology.” It kind of misses the mark in my opinion, especially for a definition from such an esteemed source. Well what can you expect from a book that includes such words as “Chillax”, “Staycation” and “Bromance”.
