Book List: Steampunk

Book List: Steampunk
I'm still new to the Steampunk sub-genre, but I am so intrigued by it. I love the aesthetic of Victorian England mixed with technology that wasn't. Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate series got me hooked on the genre, and one day I hope to do a library program around Steampunk. But until that day, here's a book and media list regarding this awesome genre!
