Put on your Goggles, It’s Steampunk Week

by Siobhan
Fiction / October 06, 2011

In case your clockwork robot didn't alert you to the fact, it's Steampunk Week over on Tor.com. They are revelling in all things futuristic-Victorian, including reviewing some great books inspired by the style.

Also be sure to read the post on "Canadian Steampunk, Our Historical Inspiration" written by Countessa Lenora, the Canadian Queen of Steampunk.

Here are a few Steampunk novels to get your gears in motion...

 

The Clockwork Century series by Cherie Priest

Boneshaker by Cherie PriestDreadnought by Cherie PriestGanymede by Cherie Priest

"Dreadnought offers plenty of fun: fast-paced battle scenes, thundering locomotives and the gem of the book, its heroine. Vivid, believable and endearingly stubborn, she’s an enjoyable companion for those taking the time to read a book which challenges the notion that steampunk must assume Victorian attitudes with its goggles and corsets."
Seattle Times

 

Jackelian series by Stephen Hunt

The Court of the Air by Stephen HuntThe Kingdom Beyond the Waves by Stephen HuntThe Rise of the Iron Moon by Stephen Hunt

"Steampunk fantasy and SF with a Victorian-era feel… A rip-roaring Indiana Jones-style adventure."
RT Book Reviews (4 stars) on The Kingdom Beyond The Waves

 

All Men of Genius by Lev AC Rosen

All Men of Genius by Lev AC Rosen"This debut literary steampunk novel fits well on the shelf with Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate series, with broad crossover appeal to fans of sf, historical romance, and young adult fiction." —Library Journal
