What have you read that is similar to the The Parasol Protectorate Boxed Set: Soulless, Changeless, Blameless, Heartless and Timeless? I really enjoyed the series and would like to read another!

I haven't read that series yet (though I've purchased it), but I read her other book which takes place in the same world, Etiquette & Espionage, and I loved it. On the strength of that book, I pre-ordered the sequel, Curtsies & Conspiracies, which just came out (and bought the boxed set you mention, to tide me over until the new book came out. However the other 2000 books on my kindle provided enough reading material that I never got to the boxed set).

I'm still new to the steampunk world, so I can't make any other personal suggestions.

The Parasol Protectorate is great, but it's not textbook steampunk so it's hard to give you an exact comparision. That said, you might like Devon Monk's Age of Steam series, starting with Tin Swift: The Age of Steam, or Meljean Brook's Riveted series, starting with The Iron Duke (A Novel of the Iron Seas).

I read Shelley Adina's freebie Lady of Devices: A steampunk adventure novel (Magnificent Devices) and immediately bought the 4-book bundle ( there's a fifth book now).

The first book of Lindsay Buroker's Emperor's Edge series The Emperor's Edge is a freebie I enjoyed, but I switched genres and haven't gone further in the very long series.

Though not completely steampunk, it does have elements of steampunk. Those who have seen the show the book is based on would know that.

It's not fiction, but if you're into steampunk stuff, you might enjoy this:
SteamDrunks: 101 Steampunk Cocktails and Mixed Drinks

It's quite an amusing read, as well as very informative and useful.

Heart of Brass: A Novel of the Clockwork Agents - book 1 in the series - the author also wrote a YA series that is also steampunk-ish - The Girl in the Steel Corset (The Steampunk Chronicles) (although it got a bit too teenage angsty for me by the end of the series)

there is also Boneshaker

That is awesome site, thanks for posting it. I've already created a few wish lists from it - should keep me in reading material for, oh, the next 10 years or so. ;-) Best link I've seen for Fantasy series and stand-alones.

I'm glad you like the site. It's one of my favorites. There's a companion site for best science fiction but I don't find it nearly as helpful. It's still worth checking out though: http://bestfantasybooks.com/best-science-fiction-books.html

One of my other favorites for both genres is this one: http://www.freesfonline.de/RecommendedStories.html

I did notice the SF link on the same site. I'm also a fan but have to be in the mood for it. That usually means I reread the Dune series and all of Heinlein's books, and dive into Asimov after that. My main love is Fantasy, but I do subscribe to Asimov's SF magazine to get the SF taste satisfied and learn of new authors.

I subscribe to Fantasy & SF magazine - a nice combo of the two genres. Actually - I'm veering off to the competition for the moment here, don't beat me up - Barnes and Noble has a great annual subscription deal for those two as a combo right now - $30 for the year. Can't beat that in price; Asimov's mag alone is $35/year. They are great for finding new authors/reading material (which means you then go shopping on Amazon for them ;-)).
