WHAT'S THE MEANING?

Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction or science fantasy combining technology and aesthetic designs in the 19th-century. Furthermore, it shows what is life in the Victorian era if steam power was present. This includes fictional machines visualized by authors. 

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know the term steampunk was coined by K.W Jeter? He coined the term to distinguish his works from the well-known sub-genre cyberpunk. This was at the height of the cyberpunk movement in science fiction in the middle of 1980s. That time, the suffix "punk" was overused so Jeter claimed that the next big thing would be 'steampunk." But, it is difficult to pinpoint exactly where this sub-genre's first authors got their inspiration. What most people know, is that its inspiration was taken from the Victorian era. Although steampunk is quite an obscure sub-genre, it had a notable influence on arts and fashion around the world. In fact, the steampunk movement can be seen in many steampunk movies. Moreover, steampunk has a wide range of appeal. Some people drawn into this sub-genre came from their love of the Victorian period. Others are interested in its unique approach to the technology from re-envisioning 19th-century machines with modern features. Meanwhile, many people are fascinated by it because of their fashion aspects. This enables them to sample and even combine a range of clothing styles and accessories in the 19th century. Furthermore, the more general neo-vintage movement has aided steampunk. With all that being said, this cannot explain wholly the steampunk's appeal. The genre possesses a life of its own.
