Steampunk’s humble beginnings are rooted in the novel. From Jules Verne all the way up to today’s modern authors, there is a wealth of Steampunk fiction just waiting to be read as a result of its current popularity, and there’s new stuff being published almost every day.
A recent article from Library Journal entitled, Steampunk: 13 Titles to Update Your Collections, advises librarians on how to grow their Steampunk collections with recent publications that attracted the author’s attention and garnered his praise. The list is definitely worth your attention if you’re trying to stay at the forefront of Steampunk’s current publications and keep your personal libraries up to date.
The list is a rather comprehensive one, including nods to The Steampunk Bible by Jeff VanderMeer, Cherie Priest’s new novel, Dreadnought, and a few newcomers to the genre. Be sure to check it out!
