  1. Hi Liesel, found you on Twitter and followed you here! Love your website. You have inspired me to read Steampunk. Phillip Pullman and William Gibson are the only names I recognise on your list. But I am a big fan of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne. Good luck with your writing and hope you get published soon. Ruth

    Clearly I’m not a true steampunk fan! I’ve been doing an internship at Little, Brown and managed to get copies of Soulless and Windup Girl. Just finished Soulless a few hours ago, and I loved it! Can’t wait to read the rest. If you had to pick one of these as your favorite, which would it be? I’m usually more of a mannerpunk girl myself, but steampunk is pretty amazing.

  3. @Meg, I like them all. It’s so hard to choose just one!
