Search for Steampunk recommendations

I've recently become aware of the popular steampunk genre and I'm hoping those in the blogosphere would be able to help me find some titles to help me get my feet wet.

I've read and adored the Parasol Protectorate series, but I don't know how steampunky that book is compared to full blown steampunk. As with Sci Fi, I may not be ready to go all-in yet; I may need something a little more entry level.

Any thoughts or suggestions?


  1. you are invited to follow my blog

  2. I haven't read them, but you might check out Scott Westerfield's Leviathan or Cherie Priest's Boneshaker.

    Also, you might be interested in The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch - it's set in a world that parallels the Renaissance similar to how most steampunk parallels the Victorian era.
