Just the Beginning...

While I have covered some of my favorite Steampunk authors, they are by no means the only Steampunk authors! This is a genre that is expanding and evolving every day. Like the great YA leap, when authors where trying to finagle their way into that genre, authors are trying to find ways to market to this burgeoning demographic all the time. In fact, my reading list for this summer did overflow with Steampunk books I longed to read and finally get around to. What with that pesky thing called "life" I was unable to even finish much of my list, restricting my reading to just the authors that participated this summer.

I hope that this summer has found a new genre or a new favorite book for you. Perhaps I will do this again next summer with even more authors, what do you say to that? Until then, remember to enter the giveaway, ending Sunday night, and here's some more books to check out, again, these are just books I found interesting, but the list isn't really that accurate or exhaustive a list. Also, I'd love to hear your recommendations too!
