Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction or science fantasy that incorporates technology
and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery.
Steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century's British
Victorian era or American "Wild West", in a post-apocalyptic future during which steam
power has maintained mainstream usage, or in a fantasy world that similarly employs
steam power. Therefore, steampunk may be described as neo-Victorian.
