"Hi Maeve, Great article and informative. The book I'm currently working on (my first) partly takes place in Texas, albeit a fictional, alternate version of Texas post Civil War. Overall, STEAMED has been great resource and encouragement in…"

Jeremy Brandon Murphy replied to J.R. Woods's discussion Aether in Steampunk Fiction in the group WORDSMITHS
"A concept of aether plays a heavy role in the alternate history steam punk book I'm working on. I agree that consistent physics are important. Wouldn't worry about "stepping on any toes" though."

J.R. Woods replied to Lia Keyes's discussion Guild Member Matt Delman on The Essential Elements of a Steampunk World in the group WORLD-BUILDING: IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS
"Can't say I can provide any solid insight as to what is "essential" in steampunk, but it was a good article and I feel pretty good about my own story which is sort of an alternate history as well. While I have done a good bit of…"

Xeno Gilder replied to J.R. Woods's discussion Aether in Steampunk Fiction in the group WORDSMITHS
"I scanned through the concept of 'aether' in Steampunk. Seems a little too far fetched for my tastes. Interesting idea some other type of fiction, just not this genre IMO."

"I'll have to agree with my apparent relative (I mean, seriously, are we related?), Ms. Dryden. 'Aether' is not a particular thing: Plato merely described it as a philosophical "fifth element" that was created and used by the…"

James Heiney replied to J.R. Woods's discussion Aether in Steampunk Fiction in the group WORDSMITHS

Delphine Dryden replied to J.R. Woods's discussion Aether in Steampunk Fiction in the group WORDSMITHS
"More important than following certain rules for aether (or any similar substance that "powers" your steampunk world) is internal consistency in how it impacts your world. Figure out what your force can do, play with "what if"…"

Aether in Steampunk Fiction

About to start my first steampunk story and I wanted to get everyone's thoughts, views, and experiences (whether from your own writing or things you've read) regarding aether.I've done some research on it and have read about the history, science and theories of aether, but want to know more in regards to steampunk fiction.
