Steampunk and cyberpunk


While Disney’s steampunk “Alice Through the Looking Glass”, released May 27th, may not be wholly faithful to the original, its iconography is instantly recognisable. This is a credit not only to Lewis Carroll himself, but also to the many artists (and one in particular) who have over the years turned his words into images.

Steampunk
is a subgenre of fantasy and speculative fiction which came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century, and often set in Victorian era England—but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells, or real technological developments like the computer occurring at an earlier date. It is often associated with cyberpunk and shares a similar fanbase and theme of rebellion, but developed as a separate movement (though both have considerable influence on each other). Apart from time period, the main difference between cyberpunk and steampunk is that steampunk settings tend to be less obviously dystopian.

Variants of the steampunk concept

GURPS Steampunk also introduced several other variations on the steampunk theme, including timepunk—a general term covering any historical variation on steampunk— or more specifically, bronzepunk (set in the Bronze Age), sandalpunk (set in Ancient Greece or the Roman Empire), stonepunk (set in the Stone Age, as seen in The Flintstones) and clockpunk (set in the Renaissance, as seen in Paul J. McAuley's novel Pasquale's Angel and Terry Pratchett's Discworld series). The creators of the Girl Genius comics made up their own term for steampunk: gaslamp fantasy.
