I'm a too new member to participate at this swap and I live in France, so it's maybe a little bit to complicated, but I'm gonna follow this swap with curiosity !

Loooooooooooove steampunk style !

Yeah! The sign ups end right after my other swaps sendouts! And I have suggestions:

Books:
The Affinity Bridge by George Mann
Boneshaker by Cherie Priest (she has a few others that are steampunk too)
Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
Whitechapel Gods by S.M. Peteres
Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson
The Anubis Gates by Tim Powers
The Court of the Air by Stephen Hunt

And what about H.P. Lovecraft? Does anyone else think that his stiff has a steampunky feel?

Movies:
Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
The Rocketeer
Steamboy (I haven't seen this one)

What about 300? Since it's not exactly historically accurate. I'm thinking especially of Xerxes.

Types:
-British Indian Empire (Raj, Lost World/Explorer--pith helmet stuff)
-Geisha
-Western
-Egyptian
-Pirate
-Arabian/Persian (Belly Dancer, Aladdin)

Apparently there's a Medieval Steampunk, which focuses on what would have happened if there hadn't been a dark ages (technology kept advancing instead of collapsing).

I'll admit that I"m not well versed in the ideas of steampunk but all the suggestions that have been posted as displays of steampunk also make me think some of Phillip Pullman's The Golden Compass.  I could be way off base but I just thought I'd suggest that and see if I was right.

Staar, they call Medieval Steampunk Clockpunk. I actually find it very interesting since I go to our Renaissance Festival every year and always dress up! I will add everyone's suggestions very soon, I'm glad there's a good amount of interest already!
