UK Guardian is Going Back to the Future (with Steampunk)
"Why steampunk is back is hard to say. Perhaps it offers what SF could be starting to lose – a sense of wonder and, more importantly, the opportunity for a bit of fun."
The UK Guardian has done a nice feature on Steampunk and its comeback. Tachyon's Steampunk Anthology is named among titles like The Difference Engine and The Anubis Gates as a genre favorite.
