Steampunk celebrates 19th century science fiction fun in the modern world. Steampunk is a Science Fiction / Fantasy genre where the Industrial Revolution either didn’t happen or happened differently. Time travel, steam power, clockwork, airships, goggles, mad scientists, and Victorian-inspired fashions are common themes in steampunk. Steampunk encompasses a sense of longing not for the actual past, but for a futuristic past that never was, and turns that longing into artistic expressions of music, literature, art, and entertainment.
