What began in the late 1980s as an underground community of science fantasy aficionados with a fetish for Victoriana now pervades almost every aspect of popular culture from music and movies to comics and computer games. Steampunk is much more than a retro-futuristic fashion statement or a subgenre of science fiction. Author and musician Paul Roland traces the history of Steampunk, drawing on exclusive quotes from leading writers, artists, musicians and filmmakers in the field.
Paul Roland is a former editor of "ZigZag "magazine; the author of more than 30 books including The Curious Case of H. P. Lovecraft," " The Dark History of the Occult," and" The Nazis and the Occult"; and a cult indie recording artist who was termed "the male Kate Bush" by Robyn Hitchcock.
