The founders of the steampunk movement in books (well, if you discount HG Wells, Michael Moorcock and myself), chat with the ever-reliable John Berlyne about the roots of steampunk in literature.

This was at the recent World Fantasy Con in the USA. I really must visit this one day, it looks like fun.

    This is really exciting to hear, I love that he mentions Steam Con !
    You all should be there next year we’d love to have you sign the books you’ve written and we own, love and share.

    Very kind of you to say so, Patrick.

    Steampunk is a fairly new genre of fiction, but it could be argued that it had its roots with H.G. Wells and Jules Verne.

    There’s an interesting article about the Jules Verne, the steampunk pioneer, titled “Jules Verne: A Novelist Who Accurately Envisioned the Future”.
