Tell me about what you're reading, so long as it's steampunk, neo-vic, or even proto-steampunk like Verne and Wells.
I'm currently chewing my way through Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan, which is not only a great Young Adult novel, but is great fun as well. The artwork by Keith Thompson makes a stunning companion to the text, which matches wonderful pacing with strong (albeit somewhat typical) YA style protagonists - a girl masquerading as a boy in the British Air Navy, and the renegade son of the recently assassinated Franz Ferdinand. On one side, we have the biologically altered Hydrogen Breathers (imagine a genetically altered balleen whale) of the Darwinist powers (Britain, France, and Russia) and on the other, the "Klankers" of Germany and Austria, with their metal machines and airships. I've been listening to the audiobook this past week, and just got my hard copy in the mail. Allan C****** (Nightcrawler in the X-Men films) narrates the story beautifully. Highly recommended for those looking for some steampunk that won't make you think too hard.
