Steampunk Challenge ~ Hosted by The Bookkeeper
(badge links to the beginning challenge page)
Steampunk is hot and it’s getting hotter. It’s growing into a subculture within literature, music, art, fashion and more.
What's great about this particular genre is that it expands into so many areas. You can read sci fi steampunk, romance steampunk, and young adult steam punk. I have even seen erotic literature with the label and a dating sites which cater to those who love the genre.
So join the fun and see what all the fuss is about.
About: This challenge runs from October 2010 to October 2011 - so we are a month into this one. However there are no obligations other than to have fun discovering a genre and let other participants know about what you find.

For recommendations on what to read there are loads in Shellie’s Steampunk file on Goodreads. Linked below are three recently reviewed books within the genre from Layers of Thought:
- Soulless ~ by Gail Carriger – One of my favorite and fun books this year!
- The Dream of Perpetual Motion ~ by Dexter Palmer - an intellectual sci fi.
- Frankenstein ~ by Mary Shelley – thought to be one of the founding books for the genre.
