"The Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences - an amazing series of books with two published and number three hitting the bookshelves in March 2014.  Look for The Janus Affair and Phoenix Rising."

"The Difference Engine is definitely the father of the modern genre and to my mind is still the best of the lot.  I don't care for Jeter, some of the Blaylocks are amusing. I quite liked Gideon Smith and the Mechanical Girl, and a new one…"

"The Difference Engine by Bruce Sterling and William Gibson of modern novels; and, of Victorian novels which have technology beyond that which was available at the time, it has to be 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, by Jules Verne."

"The Anubis Gates by Tim Powers. Second is The Diamond Age by Heal Stephenson. Both very well written and great story lines. Read, or partially read Boneshaker, think its poorly written- sorry!"

D. S. James replied to Ryan Gunwitch-Black's discussion What's your favorite steampunk novel?
"Sorry, that's Quatermain. But, if pressed and having to pick just one, it would have to be Verne's "Robur the Conqueror", certainly the parent of all Steampunk airship novels."
