  • Steampunk is a subculture, a creative community, and an aesthetic movement . . .

    Anina Bennett
  • . . . collective term for Powers, Blaylock and myself. Something based on the appropriate technology of the era; like ‘steam-punks’, perhaps.

    K.W. Jeter
  • Steampunk is modern technology—iPads, computers, robotics, air travel—powered by steam and set in the 1800’s.

    Tee Morris & Pip Ballantine
  • [A]n era that never was, but one that we wish had been.

    Abney Park
  • I have to confess that steampunk often reads to me like updated versions of a Boy’s Own adventure.

    Jay Lake
  • It’s sort of Victorian-industrial, but with more whimsy and fewer orphans.

    Caitlin Kittredge
  • I don’t believe in steampunk as a binary. I see it as more like a spectrum.

    Cherie Priest
  • Steampunk is a noun, a verb, and an adjective. The arguments start when people try to pick just one.
