Makes me want to write science fiction in the Victorian era. Via Boing Boing.
Heh, it’s been done, but I’ll betcha there’s dang few vampires in those steampunk novels. Hit those keys!
Oooohhh, now that’s an idea…
there’s a great sci-fi novel called “the difference engine” by william gibson based on, strangely enough, the differential engine as designed by babbit. it was a precursor to the the modern computer.
gibson’s novel has all kinds of incredible jules verne/hg wells kind of machines in the victorian era as some sort of plot to kill someone important unwinds.
I have a total weakness for this genre…
I might have to try that vampire/steampunk.
