Seven Steampunk Fallacies

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.

Steampunk: A dictionary definition

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”.
