It seems that things such as movies and novels of Steampunk/Clockpunk nature are becoming more and more mainstream. Do you think that this trend will continue?
What is your favorite book/movie/video game of this genre that you would like to recommend?

I do think the trend to become more mainstream will continue. Once most sci/fi and fantasy fans are introduced to steampunk and the newer cross genre Steampunk/Romance they will embrace it. There is so much to love aobut it. MY favorite steampunk book to date is Boneshaker by Cherie Priest. For anyone intersted in Steampunk/Romance with a high, for readers 18 and older, heat level I would reccomed two new releases from Lyrical Press: Clockworks and Corsets by Regina Riley and As Timeless As Stone by Maeve Alpin - both on the kindle for uder $4.00 per download http://www.lyricalpress.com/store/index.php?main_page=indexAs Timeless As Stone

I don't know if the trend will continue but I hope that it will! I just discovered steampunk during the Christmas holidays. I was googling something else and saw a reference to steampunk and I was fascinated by the word! So I immediately googled steampunk and then spent the next 24 hrs. looking at all things steampunk: jewelry, clothes, art, whatever! I am loving it all. I can only wait and see if more and more of it gets translated into movies. Wouldn't it be a great genre for an ongoing television series? Especially since the sets could be done with CGI like on Sanctuary? If I was any kind of writer I would so be whipping up a script and trying to sell it to HBO or Syfy.

an old but classic video game, Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura, is a very good example of steampunk. the nation arcanum goes through an industrial revolution, but in the midst of elves, dwarves, and other fantastic humanoids. the forces that power magic are in direct opposition to that of technology, so you can choose a side or dabble in each.

available at good old games for $6.00 as download only < http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/arcanum_of_steamworks_and_magick_obscura/ >

or at amazon.com
Arcanum : Of Steamworks & Magick Obscura

I love my Kindle. I also still really love actual physical books. They aren't mutually exclusive, you know.
