|Influenced by the 19th century scientific romances, such as those of H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, Mark Twain, and Mary Shelley, steampunk—originating in the late 1980s—is a sub-genre of alternate history, fantasy, science fiction, and speculative fiction. Steampunk is generally set in Victorian era Britain and involves objects and settings where steam power is used, and everything from architecture, art, culture, and fashion has a steampunk-style. Today, many people embrace the steampunk culture, incorporating it into their lives, through fashion, film, home décor, and music. This period was the development of telecommunications and mass transit. Steam engines were an aspect of life in the time that lead to industrialization and development of the era.
