Steampunk can be difficult to pin down. The majority of individuals agree that the visually distinct genre combines Victorian pastiche with technology, magic, and longing for a world that never was. Try to be more detailed than that, and you’ll inevitably grind someone’s gears.

The genre frequently incorporates anachronistic, steam-powered machinery set in an alternate era in which the industrial revolution either did not occur or looked drastically different than it did in reality. But, as these fifteen titles demonstrate, steampunk can encompass everything from time travel to dinosaurs to zombies to cowboys.

Whether you’ve been a fan of steampunk for a long time or not, these books will make you want to grab your parasol, board a dirigible, and explore the skies in style.
