Hello, I'n new to this community and steampunk in general. I've published in other genres, but not tried writing steampunk (yet). Just thought I'd say hello.

Mr. Walton,

That is so clever! That is a wonderful suggestion, particularly if I could use some sort of tune recognition software that would allow the song to be played on the page of The Chronicle! "Steampunking" up the tunes—that has some delightful possibilities!

Thanks!

Leslie

That comment was to add to Leslie Orton's request.

I lit the spark at my local writers group by taking a song I liked and in 1000 words fleshed it out, using some lines from the song, and then put it to them to identify the song.  Now others have started doing it. I know not all the songs (most) are steampunk but that does not mean they cannot be steampunked.
