Steampunk inspiration and resources

Steampunk Sourcebooks

The main reason I started this site was to gather information and resources to inspire and inform the Steampunkery of others. The juiciest nuggets come in the form of my Steampunk Sourcebooks, in which I endeavor to find as much information on a single topic, including how other people have already punked it, and put it all in one handy location. Now, I am taking one step further to put all the sourcebooks together for easy perusal. So, pour yourself another cuppa because each article is quite long, and we can’t have you losing your steam in the middle. (pun most definitely intended)
