Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that takes many Victorian/Industrial Age technologies, and then thrusts it into a futuristic world. In a steampunk world, there might be flying machines, computers, and ray guns - but built from copper, wood, brass, and using steam as a power source. It's a unique blend of the future and the present that makes steampunk unique.
In the steampunk universe, there are plenty of various occupations you can pursue. Here are several prime examples:
Blogging since 2005.
Medical sales warrior by day, writing ninja by night...
I am the author of the Mechanica Wars series. The first book, Dragonfly Warrior, will be published in 2013 (stay tuned for details).
I love science fiction, fantasy, literary fiction, biographies, and chocolate chip cookies.
