Whether your interest lays in science fiction, fantasy, secret societies, hidden agendas, war, alternate history, mystery, or even a little bit of romance all of these blend well with Steampunk.
If you have a moment you may wish to view an introduction to all things Steampunk. EvilEgg has created wonderful guide: "SteamPunk: A List of Themes" [E]. Also, Capt. J B Dryden III, RAI has created a list (ever expanding) of works in the genre: "List of Steampunk Literature" . And Thundersbeard 30DBC JULY HOST created the unofficial SteamPunk newsletter, "Invalid Item"
You may wish to further peruse, Alexa Black 's work "~Airship~ ((pt.1))" [18+].
If you are a fan of Jules Verne or H. G. Wells, you are a fan of steampunk, as they are not only considered pioneers of science fiction in general, but their style is the pattern Steampunk follows: Victorian era science fiction. More accurately, it most often propels the audience into an adventure in an alternate history/alternate universe where steam power is the norm rather than internal combustion.
