Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that refers to works set in an era where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century, and often Victorian era England—but with technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne. Steampunk contains alternate history-style elements of past technologies like dirigibles or mechanical computers combined with futuristic technologies like multi-function goggles, giant robots and ray guns.
