Steampunk Goes Mainstream

Genres, other than mysteries, don’t get much attention from mainstream reviews, so it’s amusing to see Michael Dirda write about “the fabulous and always entertaining realm of classic steampunk” in the Washington Post, specifically The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack, by Mark Hodder, the first in a new series from Pyr, the five-year-old speculative fiction imprint of  independent publisher, Prometheus Books.

The book received a starred review in Booklist. However, Publishers Weekly was not as positive.
