Default SteamPunk

SO anyone into steapunk? Anyone read any steampunk books or stories?

I am writing a steampunk novel and plan on writing a whole series and would be interested in finding out what are some things that you feel are important to a steampunk story?

I did my research and I know the basics but I always like to hear from people that are into it whether it is general interest or hardcore.

Whilst I can see the appeal of the genre, I've always had too much other shit to read in the fantasy or scifi genres that would take precedence. The only novel I've read is by BL's very own Dan Abnett. Triumff: Her Majesty's Hero. Not too bad at all.

I also occasionally play Malifuax, which pretty much encapsulates the whole occult/scifi aspect. I think the appeal of the genre is the crossover of Arthur Conan Doyle, Jules Verne, Lovecraft and Poe. You need a raven trying to solve a murder mystery that involves Victorian technology being used to help cultists free Cthulhu from his underwater prison. Not much help, I know, but the best I can come up with.

Hope it all goes well for you.

Airships. Fucking Airships.

While I was injured for some new reading material I picked up some of the Eberron Campaign setting stuff for 3.5th Ed D&D, and I loved reading about it. Mecha soldiers, gnomes and goblins seem to be a typical thing as opposed to the typical Elves and Dwarves of stereotypical fantasy.

That is fine, I originally was going to write more of a 40K sci fi book I wrote out five 500 word stories to make into books then added the steampunk one last minute and gave them to 10 ten people. All ten people picked the steampunk story as the one they wanted to read. So it made it a no brainer to write the steampunk story.
