Jack Tyler replied to Lia Keyes's discussion Phillip Reeve Calls for Greater Scientific Plausibility in Steampunk Fiction!
"Half the self-appointed experts say that steampunk is a burgeoning new field that's about to take off, the other half say it never had any life, and will be buried next week.  I wish these folks would make up their minds so that I'll…"

"Here is an example of a new technological development of obvious relevance to steampunk, a press release from MIT issued just today: Steam from the sun --- New sponge-like structure converts solar energy into steam. This would seem like a useful…"

Elizabeth Schechter replied to Darke Conteur's discussion Sex in Steampunk
"I never said the history books are wrong. They're just not telling you everything. A single source of history never tells the entire story. There simply isn't enough room! Likewise, you cannot base your learning of history on a single…"

Leslie Orton replied to Darke Conteur's discussion Sex in Steampunk
"Ms. Schechter, You are passionately defending a point that no one is disputing. No one is claiming that sex didn't exist in the Victorian era. You are missing the point. The question that started this thread was whether sex scenes are…"

Elizabeth Schechter replied to Darke Conteur's discussion Sex in Steampunk
"And just because an era is modest and decorous in the history books doesn't make it so. To say that sex in steampunk appears too modern is to deny that there was a heavily sexual aspect to the Victorian era. The Pearl is still in print. Man…"
