Product description

Review

'Authoritative and in-depth compendium of all things clockwork. It’s a well-researched and wordy volume, and one that sheds light on the mysterious and amorphous cultural phenomenon. An essential addition to any retro-futurist bookcase.’

(Imagine FX)

‘As an introduction to the genre this book is highly recommended.’

(SFX)

'Failing to leave a single steampunk stone unturned, this illustrated history traces the genre's evolution from the works of HG Wells to Gail's Carriger's Alexia Tarabotti novels. Miles from being a coffee table decoration, it's a steampunk bible. This guide demands dedicated reading time in order to be enjoyed to its fullest extent.'

(SciFi Now)

A lavishly designed and illustrated book about the origins and permutations of the literary subgenre famous for goggles, airships, and other trappings of a stylized Victorian era. Whether you’re a Steampunk fan interested in learning more of its history or are a newcomer looking for a way to find out what all the fuss is about, Steampunk is an enjoyable read.’

(Sci-Fi Bulletin)

‘Gracious tips of the bowler to Steampunk's founding trio, Powers, Blaycock and Jeter, a decent bit on graphic novels, a nice tribute to Michael Moorcock, whose Nomad of the Time Streams trilogy is a much-loved genre wellspring, and some fun pictures, including one of a rather sad Steampunked Dalek with a brass funnel poking out of its rear (the indignity!). Also, Robb enthuses engagingly over several easy-to-overlook TV shows, such as the original Wild Wild West, CBC's Secret Adventures of Jules Verne and its sequel The Infinite Worlds of H.G. Wells (both of which have jumped to the top of this reviewer's must-see list)’

(Starburst Magazine)

'As comprehensive as its voluminous subtitle suggests... a lively exploration of a fascinating subject.'

(MyM Magazine)

‘Robb’s book is a joy, an authoritative and beautifully illustrated artefact of the genre in its own right.’

(Choice Magazine)

Review

As comprehensive as its voluminous subtitle suggests... a lively exploration of a fascinating subject. -MyM Magazine
