"This collection expands and extends existing scholarship on steampunk in order to explore many previously unconsidered questions about cultural creativity, social networking, fandom, appropriation, and the creation of meaning. [It] offers a wide-ranging look at the impact of steampunk, as well as the individuals who create, interpret, and consume it."--Publisher information.
