"SCI-FI Steampunks truly love this stuff !
Our freak flag is a pocket protector.
There are few bigger SCI-FI Geeks left on the planet.
I'm a life long friend of Gene R. and Dr. Carl S.
While I'm making Steampunk you can bet I have a least two SCI-FI streams and a game stream going simultaneously.
I absorb every bit that I can and store it in my game neuron and brain matter for future use..
All of today's tech realities are born of yesterday's SCI-FI.
I'm a retro SCI-FI and Humor Steampunk. So now I begin writing another chapter, on another mission. Tunneling great distances.
I think you can tell there is nothing I would rather read, watch or create than SCI-FI. I play with the big boys and it is as epic as epic gets. One can only imagine".

Since the 1990s, the Steampunk label has expanded beyond works set in recognizable historical periods, to works set in fantasy worlds that rely heavily on steam- or spring-powered technology.
Fantasy steampunk settings abound in tabletop and computer role-playing games. Notable examples include Skies of Arcadia, Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends, and Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura.
The gnomes and goblins in World of Warcraft also have technological societies that could be described as steampunk as they are vastly ahead of the technologies of men, but are not magical like those of the Elves.
In the role-playing game series The Elder Scrolls, a race of Elves known as the "Dwemer" ("Deep Elves") utilizes both magic and steampunk-esque technology, as opposed to the more medieval-based technologies of Men and the purely magic-based societies of some other Elven races.
Dungeons and Dragons introduced steampunk elements with the Eberron setting, including automatons called warforged and the use of "technological" magic through items such as the lightning rail and airships.
Examples include Jean-Pierre Jeunet & Marc Caro's The City of Lost Children (1995), anime film Steamboy (2004), Turn A Gundam (1999–2000), Trigun, and Hayao Miyazaki's post-apocalyptic anime Future Boy Conan (1978), and Disney's film Treasure Planet (2002). In 2011, musician Thomas Dolby heralded his return to music after a 20-year hiatus with an online steampunk alternate fantasy world called the Floating City, to promote his album, A Map of the Floating City.
