I've been a fan of steampunk for several months now. A girl at a bookstore reccomended I pick up The Court of the Air, and right now I'm reading Rise of the Iron Moon. Stephen Hunt's got the gift. Cherie Priest's Boneshaker is also pretty good IMO.

Hi Disreputable_Stave,

Welcome to the forums :-)

I think you'll find that once you get the taste for steampunk it's pretty hard to get rid of it! You might like to try The Affinity Bridge by George Mann (the first in a series featuring Newbury and Hobbes), or The Difference Engine by William Gibson if you're hunting for more steampunk fun.

I was pleasantly surprised to find out just how many Frenchmen thought up technology that finds its way into steampunk.
