What is steampunk you say? Steampunk personality, August Wahnsinger says, “Steampunk is Victorian-era science fiction. Anything that can be envisioned as a part of a scientifically advanced ‘steam’ era can be properly described as steampunk. Steampunk finds its origins in literature, going back to the works of Mary Shelley, Jules Verne and H.G. Wells.”
