An excellent review of the Steampunk culture. A good overview for the newcomer as well as a proper retrospective for the social historian....
Jeff VanderMeer is an award-winning author and coeditor of a bestselling anthology of Steampunk literature.
S. J. Chambers is an independent Poe scholar focusing on his importance to genre literature like Steampunk.
Steampunk—a grafting of Victorian aesthetic and punk rock attitude onto various forms of science-fiction culture—is a phenomenon that has come to influence film, literature, art, music, fashion, and more. The Steampunk Bible is the first compendium about the movement, tracing its roots in the works of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells through its most recent expression in movies such as Sherlock Holmes. Its adherents celebrate the inventor as an artist and hero, re-envisioning and crafting retro technologies including antiquated airships and robots. A burgeoning DIY community has brought a distinctive Victorian-fantasy style to their crafts and art. Steampunk evokes a sense of adventure and discovery, and embraces extinct technologies as a way of talking about the future. This ultimate manual will appeal to aficionados and novices alike as author Jeff VanderMeer takes the reader on a wild ride through the clockwork corridors of Steampunk history.
Praise for The Steampunk Bible:
"The Steampunk Bible is an informed, informative and beautifully illustrated survey of the subject."
-The Financial Times
"The Steampunk Bible is far and away the most intriguing catalog of all things steam yet written."
-The Austin Chronicle
“It’s hard to imagine how VanderMeer and Chambers could have put together a stronger collection. Its publication marks a significant, self-conscious moment in the history of the movement.”
