According to the Urban Dictionary Steampunk is a subgenre of speculative fiction, usually set in an anachronistic Victorian or quasi-Victorian alternate history setting. It could be described by the slogan "What the past would look like if the future had happened sooner." It includes fiction with science fiction, fantasy or horror themes.
On June 24, 2014, Stephanie Spong presented a program entitled "Steampunk Makers, Neo Victorian Futurism and Leadville's 21st Century Future" at Lake County Public LIbrary.
For those that missed Stephanie Spong’s steampunk presentation and those that attended that would like to see her slides again, she has shared her PowerPoint on Slideshare which you can access here.
