Steampunk!

Though I do not write in the theme, one of the more winsome subgenres I enjoy is what is commonly referred to as either steampunk or gaslight fantasies.

Normally taking place in the Victorian era, all technology is powered by coal and steam with lots of gears and mechanical glory and everybody wears goggles.

Here is an article on what they consider the top five films/tv shows based on the genre:

In the list, I am only aware of Steamboy which I own.

My favorite online gaslight cartoon is Girl Genius. (Warning: PG rating)

And I waste w-a-y too much time at Brass Goggles, a steampunk-oriented blog that has some of the most awesome photographs I've ever enjoyed.

Enjoy your side trip to a time when men were men and women could build a robot out of kitchen utensils and a teapot.

I always loved Steampunk. I wrote a little Steampunk story for Califur last year and they included it in conbook. :-)

The novel I have that I hope to sell has a lot of Steampunk in it.
