I really like idea of Steampunk but have no idea which books to start with. Can anyone recommend me a few good ones? Thanks
The one that springs immediately to mind is The Difference Engine by William Gibson and Bruce Sterling. Neal Stephenson's The Diamond Age has quite a steampunky feel to one of the societies it explores as well.
Thanks Snorbs, that's great, I'll check them out.
I recently read 'The Curious Case of the Clockwork Man' by Mark Hodder which is apparently Steampunk.It went from rambling, to interesting, to mysterious, to grotesque. I'm still not sure whether I liked it but remain slightly disturbed by parts of it (I think I am easily disturbed though).
I love both of Snorbs recommendations...exactly what I would have suggested as a good starting point.
There's Steam Punk Holmes its an interesting series also I can recommend the Johannes Cabal series very good set of books and there is also the Pax Imperium series.
Thanks everyone, looks like I'm going to be busy
