Thanks for the tip Andrew Liptak.
Ok i09, if I was going to start reading the steampunk genre what book should I start with. Not "what was the first steampunk novel?", but what would be a good easy starter? To give you an idea of my usual taste, I've read Goodkind, Eddings, McCaffrey, F. Herbert, Modesitt, Rawn, Salvatore, Sanderson, R. Jordan, Tolkien, Nix, Mckenna, Lackey, Kerr, E. Haydon, S. Douglass, and am currently reading C.S. Friedman.
