What is steampunk?

Steampunk couple and backgroundMost science fiction is about imagining a speculative future. Steampunk is a speculative past. Imagine Jules Verne or HG Wells writing about the science fantasy worlds of a Victorian-period world with know-how and aesthetic designs impressed by nineteenth-century industrial steam-powered machinery. Although its literary origins are sometimes associated to the cyberpunk genre, steampunk is generally set in the nineteenth century’s British Victorian period or the American “Wild West”, in a post-apocalyptic future in which steam energy has maintained mainstream usage. On account of this reality, steampunk may be described as neo-Victorian.

Fantasy and science fiction comes together, and it’s made of awesome! Like a crossroads of technology and romance. You’re going to see a Victorian aesthetic, things like women in bustle skirts with mutton sleeves, individuals with all kinds of steam-powered contraptions… there’s adventure, there’s excitement. You break away from the prim and the proper and the straight and the narrow and you end up going just a little bit wild.

These enthusiasts don’t dwell on the fringes of society: they’re medical doctors, lecturers and housewives and even children. It encompasses all of culture… and everything from literature to fashion to games to music… there’s Steampunk Arts, Steampunk Music and naturally there’s Steampunk clothing and jewelry…
