Steam Punk Tie Fighter and Darth Vader
What is steam punk? It is a blending of past and future. For those of you familiar with Treasure planet, you know what it is. Another example is the Golden Compass. Imagine an island floating in space, with air in space. Your riding a 1700's steamboat in space. That's steam punk.
We learned about a new steam punk book called Leviathan in our club meeting today. It's a steam punk version of WW1. There are the Darwinists and the Clankers. The Darwinists have bio-engineered war machines, while the Clankers have embraced technology using giant metal monsters. This is a book you must read! Unfortunately, this book doesn't come out until October.
