  5. I enjoy the re-imagination of the past that steampunk gives. I've always enjoyed the work of Jules Verne and enjoy the costuming and gadgetry that goes with the steampunk culture.

  16. I think I like steampunk because of the technology added into worlds that wouldn't otherwise have it and what kind of changes that means for it.

    I still haven't read the first book, but I'm willing to start on this one!

  17. When it's done well, I love the "adventuresome" quality of it--reminds me of Indiana Jones for some reason. When it doesn't get bogged down in the technical details of the gadgetry, it can do some really fantastical and innovative things. I love the thought process behind some of the alternate histories!
