Steampunk Crazy

I've gone on a little "Steampunk" bend and I'm enjoying it. Steampunk is a little genre that is reminiscent of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells. The term was actually coined by K. W. Jeter to classify works by a group of authors. It has now spread to include music (Abney Park), inventors (Jake Van Slatt), and fashion (Clockwork Couture). I've started reading "The Anubis Gates" and will let you know what I think about it when I'm done. So far, I've listened to quite a few Abney Park songs and love them. As I find more groups like them, I'll pass them along as well.

Have you got a comment about steampunk? Like it? Not? If so, what particular sites do you like to visit?
