Since many steampunk novels take place in the Victorian era, right around the Industrial Revolution, some of the best novels were very steampunk, even if they weren’t exactly steamy. Just imagine H. G. Wells sitting at his writing desk, and thinking “here I am in olden days writing about what’s going on all around me. I don’t even have to pretend! What ho!” In any case, his famous book The Time Machine is a classic.

So these are ten newer titles in the genre, and some added ones written during the actual Victorian era to get you started. Sit in your overstuffed chair next to your Edison light lamp, light a pipe, ignore the 500 pound Irish Wolfhound snoring by the fire, and get reading!
