What is Steampunk?

Steampunk is a science fiction genre that typically features steam-powered machinery, especially in a setting inspired by the industrialised Western civilisation during the 19th century. It often incorporates elements of fantasy, horror, and alternate history, with many works exploring the social and technological consequences of the Industrial Revolution. The aesthetic of steampunk is characterised by anachronistic technology, such as clockwork mechanisms, gears, brass fittings, and Victorian fashion and design elements.
