Defining Steampunk with Author Meljean Brook

The Kraken King Part I: The Kraken King and the Scribbling Spinster by Meljean BrookSteampunk can be so many things and interpreted in so many ways, but at the core, the genre is defined by the two parts of its name: the “steam” and the “punk.” The steam is a little bit easier to define – it tells us that the setting of the story is historical science fiction, in which the primary technology is steam-powered (or hasn’t evolved beyond steam-power.

Author Stephen Zimmer Interview and Amazon Gift Card Contest

The Undying Light (The Rising Dawn Saga Book 4) by Stephen Zimmer BBB: If you were to create a slogan for your life, what would it be? (Example: Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow, we all die.)

Defining Steampunk with Artist Irina Jordan

Power Up Your Destiny Steam Engine

As a child growing up in the Far East of Russia, I was fascinated with books. I spent hours at local libraries tearing through books of many authors and genres. Jules Vernes was by far my favorite.
