BW 44: Parasol Protectorate

#1


How about dipping your toes into Steampunk.  I picked up Gail Carriger's Soulless, the first novel in her Parasol Protectorate series.   It's Victorian English society meets vampires, werewolves, ghosts type of story, with some romance and comedy thrown.  Sound interesting.  There are five books in the series including:

Look up Steampunk on Amazon and you'll come across a wide variety of very interesting and what look like, entertaining non fiction and fiction books.    Including The Steampunk Bible: An Illustrated Guide to the World of Imaginary Airships, Corsets and Goggles, Mad Scientists, and Strange Literature  by Jeff Vandermeer, another interesting writer well worth checking out.

  2. I love steampunk aesthetics and would totally live in a steampunk house if I had a very good cleaning person. :) But I tried one book and didn't care for it at all. I don't think my library has this series, but I'll try it if I can.
