Trailer Thursday Steam Punk Style

Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction and speculative fiction, frequently featuring elements of fantasy, that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century, and often Victorian era England—but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or real technological developments like the computer occurring at an earlier date…Wikipedia

Trailer Thursday is a collection of my newest clock piece jewelry and some YA book trailers for “magic Under Glass” by Jaclyn Dolamore and “Leviathan” by Scott Westerfield. I wish I had a trailer for Cassandra Clare’s Infernal Devices, but alas…there isn’t one out yet. What is steam punk to you and what are your favorite books inspired by it?
