Steampunk literature seems to grow by the day as new and genre defining works are published. Even as a voracious reader, I find it hard to keep up with all the recent works by the many talented Steampunk authors.
A recent article entitled Top 25 Novels for Steampunk Aficionados helps to cut down Steampunk reading into a manageable syllabus for the study of Steampunk literature. The list goes in chronological order, which helps to see how Steampunk has evolved over time. It starts with a proto-Steampunk staple, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and explores over 150 years in Steam driven fiction.
The list continues, mentioning many of Steampunk’s most defining novels. For both the newcomer and the veteran of Steampunk, this well compiled list helps to choose that next steamy read.
