Let's Talk About Steampunk

The sub-genre of steampunk has been growing in favor with mainstream fantasy, romance, and science-fiction fans. What I love about reading steampunk books is that the worlds seem much more inclusive than a plain Victorian historical. There is more room for racial diversity and women can be scientific, mathematical, inventors and more.

But, there are still many readers who don't know where to start when it comes to steampunk, even if they are open to reading books that fall under the sub-genre. To that end, I thought that I could comb through the books that I have read that are, or even marginally involve steampunk, gaslamp, gaslight or alternative Victorian themes.

Doing a regular feature that has several books and an abbreviated review for each book, would expose my readers to some of the different steampunk books out there. Hopefully, some will come to love steampunk as much as I do. Or if they are already in love, will suggest new reading material.

So, check out the first post at Steampunk Spectrum(1) featuring:

Phoenix Rising (Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences #1) by Philippa Ballantine and Tee Morris

God Save The Queen by Kate Locke

Broken Promises by J.K. Coi
