Steampunk Unloaded, Uploaded, Reloaded, Remixed, Cooked, Stuffed, and Codified

The above subject-line, penned by Jeff VanderMeer on the Amazon book blog, encapsulates the wonderous mayhem that steampunk has become in the last few years. It also precedes his excellent overview of steampunk fiction. Devotees of the steam oeuvre, do let Jeff lead you to the best old and new classics of "Victorian-era alternate history fiction or retro-futurism," ranging from Michael Moorcock's Warlords of the Air series to The Steampunk Bible, the much-anticipated VanderMeer treasury coming out next spring.
